That old boating fever keeps coming back. I caught wind of a boat show in the area and decided to make a day of it with the family. The NCMA boat show was held in Jack London Square in Oakland. The show had both indoor displays and a large number of boats in slips. It was a beautiful day to be outside and around boats, and I had never been to this area of Oakland before. It's a great area with lots to see and do.
The boats tended to be large cruisers with not a whole lot of fishing boats. Of course the big cruisers are loads of fun to check out. The big aluminum boat was very cool. It's a heavy duty model mostly used by coast guards. We wanted to get a shot of that one for Charlotte's dad. Gabe is checking out a very cool Shamrock fishing boat that I would be more than happy to take home with me.
