ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (November 21, 2014) - The St. Petersburg Power & Sailboat Show is set to take place from Thursday, Dec. 4 through Sunday, Dec. 7 at the Duke Energy Center for the Arts Mahaffey Theater Yacht Basin and Albert Whitted Park along the picturesque St. Petersburg waterfront.
With the holiday season just ahead the show offers a great selection of gifts for the special people in your life. You don’t need a big wallet in some cases and can even purchase a Big Skinney Wallet once at the show. Look for Big Skinney Wallets in the Powerboating Tent Booth 388.
People look to their phones for everything, why not to monitor their boat. Boat Command Corp. created CONNECT! to do just that. CONNECT! gives boaters the freedom to monitor and control their boats remotely from their cell phone, tablet, or computer.
Boaters can monitor their boat’s GPS location, battery voltage, temperature, bilge pump activity, high water level, shore power, engine hours, and boat security. CONNECT! generates reports based on what the device is monitoring. Users can view this information via the mobile app or website. Look for Boat Command in the Powerboating Tent Booth 432.
