A

s chronicled in Ray Lee’s excellent column this month (see Page 8), the forces of nature did not smile down on exhibitors and

attendees of the Lake Havasu Boat Show this spring, sending unseasonable precipitation and high winds in place of the typical clear and sunny skies. What should have been the usual impressive array of muscle and bling became a massive puddle with demolished EZ-Ups on the side. Saturday proved the only worthwhile day, and the Speedboat team was able to photograph the sights in between monsoons. And what a display it was, howsoever briefly. Virtually every fast-boat builder in Southern California and Arizona were on hand with their always-impressive hulls, and there was no end of accessories and engines to be marveled at as well. Among the highlights: a terrific display from local builder Advantage Boats, which displayed its 25' Citation, 29' X-Flight and 34' Party Cat TRX; DCB’s latest M35 masterpiece; and a Cobra 270 Python with a super-plush interior and a Teague Custom Marine 1025 engine under the hatch. Check out all of the goodies on the pages ahead. 16
