The “Happy Hours” is our new boat. It is the first of its kind in the Seattle area. It is a new top-of-line super-luxurious 26 ft Avalon pontoon boat. Waypoint Marine in Ballard is our dealer. This is the perfect boat for the Pacific Northwest or anywhere where you want versatility, quality and performance. It is a luxury deck and party room on the water at the dock, floating or motoring. These are our adventures and experiences. See the 6/12/11 post for free rides and dock parties.

This is the biggest boat show on the west coast. The show features more than 1,000 yachts and boats plus the latest accessories and supplies. There are more than 200 interesting boating and fishing seminars. 
Dykstra Seminars – W 1/30 - 6:15 - Yellow Room and F 2/1 - Noon - Red Room
The 1/30 seminar title is “Pontoon Boats in the PNW: Pros vs Cons.” Pontoon boats are sweeping the country but are just starting to become popular in the PNW. The new generation of pontoon boats uses modern multi-hull technology. But what are the drawbacks? We will present the pluses and minuses.
The 2/1 seminar title is “Cruising Lake Washington: Navigating the Locks, Where to Dock, Anchor, Party and Dine!” Lake Washington is a fabulous boating destination but is often overlooked by salt-water boaters. There is great anchoring where you can swim in 75ยบ fresh water. We will discuss the many things to see and do including viewing the fabulous mansions on “The Map of The Stars.”
The Boat Show’s main location is indoors at the CenturyLink Field Convention Center. In addition the Show has exhibitors showing large yachts in the water at South Lake Union. There is free shuttle service between the two locations. 
I will be exhibiting at Captain’s Nautical Supplies, booth Concourse 2240 and will be there most of the time. I will occasionally be at Tom’s – Avalon Luxury Pontoon Boats, booth North 161. I bought my new Avalon (Avalon video) luxury pontoon boat from Tom at 2011’s show. I recommend you stop by and see some of the perfect boats for the PNW.
