ANNAPOLIS -- For many years, the Annapolis in-the-water boat shows have been a staple attraction each fall. Last year, in an attempt to bolster a sagging boating industry, area dealers ZTC and brokers added spring shows of new and used boats specifically directed toward local and regional customers.This spring, the powerboat and sailboat shows have been combined into the Annapolis Spring Boat Show, which opens tomorrow at the Annapolis Yacht Basin and Harbor."We are tickled about the show we have put together," said Jeffrey Holland, an organizer for the show, which is sponsored by the Marine Trades Association of Maryland and the Yacht Architects and Brokers Association.

Richard Ressler wishes he were in the market for a new boat. The New Holland, Pa., man visited the Baltimore Boat Show yesterday to check out the newest models and to get a feel for prices. But after months of hearing about weakening housing values, declining stocks and soaring fuel prices, Ressler said all he could afford to do was window-shop. "Gas prices," said Ressler, who said he'll just hang on to the boat he has for now. "That's probably the biggest problem."

Starting this weekend, the Boats of Bond will join the Baltimore Boat Show at the Baltimore Convention Center. The five vessels on display span nearly 35 years of the legendary 007 series, from the Tow Sled in Thunderball to Q's Jet Boat in The World Is Not Enough. The boats belong to the Ian Fleming Foundation, a non-profit organization established by Doug Redenius and two colleagues in 1992. The foundation's boat collection started with the Neptune Submarine, featured in For Your Eyes Only.

Mackerel run is big disappointmentThe head boats in Ocean City had their act together early this year, with Capt. John Bunting and the Miss Ocean City ready for mackerel trips out of the Ocean City Fishing Center late in February.But the mackerel, a tasty little fish that migrates northward along the coast, has yet to come close inshore. And the bet at this point is that there will not be much mackerel fishing in Virginia, Delaware and Maryland waters this spring."It's terrible. I don't even want to talk about it," said the fishing center's Charles Nichols, who has the O. C. Princess and the Miss Ocean City available for daily trips but little to fish for."

Side by side on the floor of the Convention Center, two extraordinary boats are on display as part of the Chesapeake Bay Boat Show.One looks like a Winnebago riding a barge. This blockish affair has a wraparound porch and a roof deck. The interior of the rectangular cabin has the feel of a suburban eat-in kitchen and family room -- blue plush carpets, bookcase, wood paneling, sofa, formica countertop, stainless steel double sink. This baby is built for comfort, not for speed.Just a few feet away sits a long, sleek jet-black power boat with four brightly chromed exhaust pipes extending out the rear.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water: Here comes the 23rd annual powerboat show.The sailboats from last weekend's annual show had barely glided from the Annapolis City Dock this week when the first of the powerboat show's 350 vessels zoomed in. Bluewater yachts were replaced with sporty runabouts. Sails were traded in for outboard motors. Suddenly, there was talk of water skiing and "go-fast" performance.The powerboat show, which starts today and runs through the weekend, will feature fishing skiffs, sport boats, family cruisers, trawler yachts and houseboats.

While trolling for rockfish below the Bay Bridge a couple of evenings earlier this week, the action was dreadfully slow -- both in terms of catch ratio and boat speed.But while the parachute-and-shads and chartreuse and white spoons throbbed 15 feet below the surface, taking an occasional 2-pound bluefish and an even less frequent rockfish that came even close to the 18-inch minimum, there was a passing show to watch.Early in the week, after the U.S. Sailboat Show ended its Columbus Day weekend run at the city docks in Annapolis, the fleet dispersed -- all still spit and polish and quick through the water.
