Gentlemen,

We made a last-minute decision to attend the Newport International Boat Show. We're flying from Daytona Beach into Providence and driving to the show. We realize that hotels will be at a premium, but where would those of you familiar with the area recommend we stay? Also, not to sound "touristy," but we'd like to have a genuine Maine lobster dinner while we're up there. Where should we go?

While we're there, we'll be happy to look at boats and equipment for those of you who have requests for specifics. I have a list of items already from my colleagues at work. Please keep in mind that we're unfamiliar with this area of the country, so don't be bashful about giving detailed directions or suggestions

Thank you!
Paul

Actually, the Outrage was a few boats ago. We kept a small Whaler as a runabout for the ICW and purchased a Tides 27 Express Sportfish.

The Tides has served us admirably, and we've managed to adjust to the larger boat with twin diesels, generator, etc. without difficulty. Accordingly, we're ready to move up.

The boats offered at the Newport Show span a different spectrum than those offered at both Miami and Fort Lauderdale; hence, our decision to attend.

The Tides is listed on YachtWorld: http://www.yachtworld.com/core/listing/pl_boat_full_detail.jsp?slim=quick¤cy=USD&units=Feet¤cyid=100&boat_id=1260568&units=Feet¤cy=USD&access=Public&listing_id=10144&url=

Expedia.com is showing rooms from $129/night in Newport to $179/night at Goat Island. No idea for bugs. I dont eat them.
Have fun!
Mike
