The Strictly Boaters Boat Show, which ran May 3-5, was easily the largest to date and drew record crowds, show organizers said.

Several participants were new to the show at South Jersey Marina and said they will be back next year, according to organizer Mark Allen.

Organizers said 14 dealers exhibited 45 boats in the water and an additional 35 on land; 26 on-land vendors displayed boating-related products, services and components in tents that defined the perimeter of the show.

Sea Tow of Cape May partnered for the event with the South Jersey Marina.

Next year’s show will be May 2-4.
