The Strictly Boaters Show, which will be held May 1-3 in Cape May, N.J., touts itself as the show where visitors will not find funnel cake, face painting or a water-skiing squirrel.

The show, which is free with Sea Tow membership or a safe boating certificate, offers center consoles, inboard offshore fishing boats, trawlers, tugs, skiffs and pontoons at its in-water displays.

The show is designed to enable and encourage sea trials and demo rides. Some exhibitors are scheduling demos during the show.
