The docks were hopping at the United States Powerboat Show in Annapolis (a.k.a. Annapolis Boat Show) held Oct. 13-16. With more than 350 boats on display ranging from passagemakers to center consoles and sport cruisers to catamarans, there was a little something for everyone. Visitors were able to sea trial vessels, enjoy a wine, beer and spirits tasting every day at noon and take in a wide range of boating seminars. (Not necessarily in that order.) Yachting was there, and here is a look at our days on the docks.
