The Web is widely touted as the ultimate way to research and buy products, such as replacement parts for your boat. However, there’s nothing like going to a boat show and seeing boat parts in the flesh, so to speak. Not only that, but you have people at each booth who are experts waiting around to answer all your questions. A perfect example is shown here. Dick Wilbur of Evolution Marine Co., shows off the Evolution Marine Shaft System at the recent Maine Boatbuilders show in Portland, Maine. Evolution Marine co-owners Alan Carr and Wilbur were at the show answering questions and selling shaft products. How are you going to get a feel for a serious mechanical product like this from the Web?
