My Nephew and his family had a trip to Europe. They visited the Vasa Museam in Stockholm, Sweden where my Nephew's wife took pictures of the ship and gave me permission to share them on this blog site.

Some of the Displays at the 2018 Ottawa Boat Show

I went around the Ottawa Boat Show and took photographs of some of the things on display for the purpose of having something visual to put into a promotional post on this blog, should we be having a display at future Boat Shows.

I did not take a comprehensive set of pictures. The Boat Show is very much like a very large car dealer convention with most of what is on display there to make sales. For that reason there is a great deal of repetition and sameness to the displays, unless the viewer is a real boating enthusiast.

I took a selection of photographs of what I found interesting. I'm posting them here because others might find them interesting, too. You will likely see some of these again around the end of 2018 and the beginning of 2019, should Capital Marine Modellers' Guild be attending the Ottawa Boat Show next year.

This is longer than it looks here. The other side had too many people in the way.

This RCMP police boat would make a great radio control model.
