If you are shopping for a boat, read "Buy a Boat With Confidence"-everything you need to know about buying a boat.

- Check your socks for holes before you leave home to avoid embarrassment.
- Cell Phones are a great way to communicate, if you get separated.
- Take a calculator for comparing boat and option packages and deals.
- Pick up brochures and business cards for later follow up.
- Carry a back pack with pen, paper, bottle of water and cards with your name, address and email to leave with salespeople.
