While it’s true that boating season is slowing down in the United States, there are a few boating event to look out for in the next two months. While some shows feature new product lines for equipment, such as propellers, other shows featuring the boating lifestyle as part of their winter sport theme.
Here’s a list of a few key shows to watch out for:
