The Central Ontario Boat Show and Sale opens its doors this Friday, offering visitors an assortment of exciting activities and over three acres of boats and marine accessories. The show runs from February 14 to 17 at the Careport Centre in Hamilton, Ontario, located just off Highway 403.
The show will feature family pontoon boats, fibreglass and aluminum fishing boats and an array of big lake cruisers.
Anglers have the opportunity to learn from Leo Stakos and Ron James stars of the TV series Fish TV, whom will share their insight and expertise for all anglers. This year's event also will feature the Fish TV's Family Zone, where families can head to the indoor pond filled with trout to try their hand at fishing.
For the senior fisherman in the family, FISHTV will have fishing simulators onsite that allow anglers to test out their fishing skills through an interactive game.
A new feature this year is Canada's Power and Outdoor Zone, an area visitors can find specials and have questions answered. One lucky show attendee will win a Honda TRX 420FM ATV courtesy of the show.
Returning to the show by popular demand are The Confederation Marine Modellers displaying model replicas boats both historical and current.
