Nearly 2,000 people attended the recent Strictly Jersey Boat Show, held April 30-May 2 at South Jersey Marina in Cape May.

Organizers say attendance was up by almost 15 percent from last year's show.

"The show was great. I felt it was better attended that some of the other shows we seem to waste money on," Tom Stocker of McKee Yacht Sales said in a statement. "As a side note, I did make a sale of a 250 DC World Cat as a result of the show. We'll be back next spring for sure."
