Now that you and your brother have discovered the unique thrill of playing Battleship with real ships, you’ll need to buy some new game pieces. Today’s Groupon will let you scope out your options: For $12, you get a five-day pass to the Seattle Boat Show (a $24 value) at the Qwest Field Event Center and on South Lake Union. The boat show runs from Friday, January 21, until Sunday, January 30. Your Groupon will also include:
- One day of free parking at the Qwest Field North Parking Lot, Safeco Field Parking Garage, or Home Plate Parking Lot (a $10 value without pass)
- A free cup of that seafaring staple, clam chowder, from FX McRory's Restaurant (a $4.45 value)
The show itself, the biggest on the West Coast, offers a boater’s paradise of boaty boating boatitude with more boats than you can shake an oar at. You’ll get to see, and shop, more than a thousand recreational watercraft, including inflatables, tugs, yachts, and the somewhat impractical flying cruise liner. Exhibitors include the 13th Coast Guard District, Alaska Series Inflatable Boats, Blue Water Yachts, Harbor Marine, Mastercraft Boat Company, Viking Life Saving Equipment, and Yachtcare, LLC. Seminar topics, will cover all of the ins and outs of fishing, boat maintenance, first aid, picking up mermaid hitchhikers, and other maritime concerns.
Five days of the Seattle Boat Show won’t seem like enough time to get in on all this floatational fun, so don’t miss a chance to shout “abandon ship!” every time you climb down from one of the show’s display boats.
