Good, plenty of boats to drool over, some at red hot prices.......I manned the kids lure painting for half a day on Sunday, heaps of kids having a ball creating their own.

I only spent a short time but still found it interesting . Was looking for a new anchor winch and have the price fixed if I purchase within 3 months . Just have to decide on repair or replace .

There was a Pathfinder on display? Which company was displaying it?

i try to go to all the expos but it’s the same poop different year. Unfortunately this year it was half the size again. I’m not going to knock it too much as it was still an good way to spend a couples hours with the family.

I reckon they need to combine the 4wd camping expo with the boat show and make it a massive event.

I enjoyed it. Would've been better if my 2yo didn't want to go in every bl..dy caravan. And Julie let me buy a new transducer

Jeff, have a look at lonestar winches. Really good

My mate went, and he said that they had a large Tank display, with Barra in it, and a bloke casting different lures into it, showing retrieval styles, and lure movements, and Barra hitting them. He said it was a great display, and also got a Berkley showbag for like $20, that had about $40 worth of lures in it, ha ha!
I would have liked to have seen that!
