Coming at the tail end of one of the most unrelentingly merry festive seasons in memory, the 2014 Toronto Boat Show promises to be a similarly unrelenting Saturnalia of boats, authors, wrist-bands, bargains, and that guy perched over an artificial pool yelling about fishing stuff. This year we’ll have more authors than ever before, including some of the most famous and beloved sailor authors of all time! Be sure to visit us at booth G545 in the “Mariner’s Market Place”.
Lin & Larry Pardey
