At the Toronto International Boat Show (January 10-18) my primary role is to meet with existing clients, introduce my  outstanding staff of insurance professionals to potential new clients and provide insurance quotes for all.  This is the most important 10 day show in our calendar and a good show can really make your year.   It is also the best show for shopping and checking out new products.    On the weekends we are going full-tilt at the booth but there are some quiet time Monday to Friday that provides an opportunity to see what is new in boats and accesories.  Here’s my   list of must-see boating accessories at The Toronto Int’l Boat Show next week.
