EXPO Continued

Mar. 6-7, 2010----National Houseboat Expo.

Saturday was rather busy as more people were in attendance.



Gibson boat with lots of visitors.







Carol comes down the stairs after taking another look at the Gibson.








Hard to tell what Carol is looking at while she talks to John. See the photo on the right for a better view.




John is most well known by his nickname "Little John". He is the person who builds and installs the beautiful stainless steel rails on Gibson boats.


Various shots of other boats on display. There were also a number of booths with vendors showing their products. Everything from insurance, brokers, marinas and generators to toilets, to mention a few.









President of Gibson Boats, William C. Brummett (Bill) is looking up at his wife Mitzi on the stairs. The Gibson plant is located in Portland, TN. Call Bill at 615-325-9320 for a tour. They have a wonderful facility and would be proud to show you their work.




Mitzi Brummett is all smiles as she welcomes folks to go through the 5500 series Gibson Boat.




Houseboat magazine plays an important role in promoting and documenting the show. Caught Steve Sargent with Camera in hand always ready to capture an interesting photo. Steve is Account Executive for Harris Publishing.


Another prominent individual with Harris publishing is Brady Kay, Executive Editor. He has on a blue shirt. Standing tall to the right of the gentleman who is leaning in an effort to see the table, Brady has camera in hand prepared to capture the winner of the Poker Run. A lucky person will go home with a new pontoon boat.

Brady and Steve are mentioned because the McGees had the pleasure of their company on the Dream Manor last Sept 23rd on the Cumberland River at Gallatin Marina.
They took many pictures including the one Carol and Allen are standing by at the boat show. The 4mcgees are looking forward to the April 2010 issue of Houseboat magazine.


A musical group was playing during the boat show. At the end of this video the camera is moved around to show Bill Brummett senior enjoying the music. He was the founder of Gibson Boats.

Carol and Allen left the show Sunday afternoon and drove part way home spending the night just north of Memphis. Arrived in Youngsville, LA about 6 pm the evening of March 8th.
It was a great trip. Thanks especially to the Gibson folks and Houseboat magazine.
