The St. Pete boat show December 3-6
was well attended despite a couple rainy days at an in water
show. It was nice to exhibit at a show in our home town only
about a half mile away.
We sold a lot of V-Locks and as
usual people had their own ideas on how to use them:
- Put one on the back of a motor scooter to hold a
fishing rod and tackle box.
- Use them in elevators cabs to mount the interior
- A cake business that is short of space plans to use
the V-Lock for large mixers and other industrial kitchen
One thing we learned quickly is that for sailboats
we need a rail mount solution. Fortunately a mechanical
engineer with a machine shop in the area stopped by and
said he had developed a rail mount bracket for an
anchor. He is going to modify his design to fit the
V-Lock and we will have prototypes at the Miami
International Boat Show
February 11-15. They should be available for
sale a couple months after that.
Bob Bitchin of
Latitudes and Attitudes
fame and after taking in a quick demo of the V-Lock he
thought it was a great new idea. We gave Bob a V-Lock to
give away at the Boat Show Cruisers' Party Saturday night
after the show. Bob liked the V-Lock enough to list it in
L&A ship store.
If you bought a V-Lock at the Saint
Pete show, or anywhere else for that matter, please send us
pictures with a brief description of how you are using it to
info@V-Lock.com and we
will send you a free insert.
The next show is Atlanta
and we look forward to talking to people in the fresh water
environment to see what they think of the V-Lock.
