The Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show, which will run from April 28-30, will feature for the first time a demo area in Ego Alley for small sailboats, kayaks, inflatables and model boats.
Attendees will try before they buy a range of small in-water products provided by exhibitors.
Topaz Sailboats will demo the Taz, Argo, Uno and Omega, organizers said.
Hobie Mirage Eclipse by Backyard Boats will demo its standup paddleboards, and the Maryland Model Yacht Club will allow opportunities at the helm of high-tech model yachts.
EZ Dock, Dragonfly Paddle and Fitness and Fawcett Boat Supplies also will do demos.
