2017 Tulsa Boat Show


Saturday morning after my haircut I drove to the Tulsa State Fairgrounds to see the Tulsa Boat Show. Lots and lots of boats.


I stepped up to MarineMax’s area to look around and a real nice salesman, Wes asked me about my camera and what I do with the photos. I showed him my blog on my cell phone and he seemed very interested and told me to take as many photos as I wanted to. So I did. They have some very nice upper end boats.


Deluxe accomodations and fixtures.


And even a separate space below for the kids, or the crew, or for guests.


The bathroom was kind of small so I couldn’t get everything but I liked the sink. Anywho, if I ever get a gazillion dollars and a hankering for a nice boat I am going to see Wes at MarineMax. A really nice guy.


There were all kinds of boats there.


Huge outboard motors. These are taller than I am.


I love the bass fishing boats. I used to have a lot smaller version when I lived near Lake Conroe in Texas. They feature platform seating like above and an electric trolling motor so you can work your way along whatever feature you are fishing. Lots and lots of fun.


Pontoon boats are popular. They can be great for puttering around on the lake.


There were some gigantic RV’s. Tulsa doesn’t have an RV show any longer so they horn in on the boat show This unit is beautiful. I have no idea how one would drive that down the road, or really how you park this thing.


it does have an out door television.


Inside is nice with nice furnishings and a fireplace.


Big kitchens,


Nice bedrooms


Large bathrooms. Yes, this one had two.


This is more my speed.


I love the little ATVs.


This is my favorite. A retro look trailer. This is like what our family of five camped in when I was a kid. Kind of cramped but you know having a dry place is nice when it is raining when you are camping. I’ve seen some miserable people trying to cook on a Coleman stove when it is raining.

2015 Tulsa Boat Show

Saturday, I dropped the kid off at his Improv class and headed over to the Tulsa Boat Show. Logan and his mother hate the boat show so if I want to go I have to go when I can.


And I found some boats. I loved this tri hull pontoon boat. Pontoon boats make for a lot of room and a smooth ride. They are not too sexy though.


The dealers had their big boats there also. Yes, there are lots of these, and bigger, on Oklahoma lakes. I think the boats are bigger than the lakes just between you and me.


Once I have paid the fee to get in, I have never bought anything at the boat show. Nothing, not even food (it is kind of like fair food.) Still it is fun seeing what is for sale. I would like some property where I could tool around in a four wheeler like the above.


They had an amphibious car, or maybe it is an amphibious boat. A car that get in water.


It has a most manly instrument panel don’t you think.


A Dobbertin Hydrocar.

Here is a video from four or five years ago. Yes, it can go pretty good but never gets up on plane. It just plows through the water.


And they had some Indian Motorcycles. I’ll take red please. They are beautiful.


They also had some funky powered assist bicycles. They can go up to 25 miles per hear I heard a salesman tellsomebody.


Weapons are extra.


I’m a sucker for old woonden power boats. They are just so cool. This is an Aristo Craft, 1956 model. $16,000 bucks and it is yours.


I think that would is beautiful.


there are lots of trailers at the show also. They get fancier ever year. This one has a rear deck. You have to provide your own kids though. Maybe next year they will have them with kids. Stay tuned.


This is more my speed. I love the color.



Many trailers and RV’s now have outside kitchens, stereos, televisions. I think that would be nice.

What about you? Have you been to a boat show lately?
