After a long winter with an economy as bleak as the weather, the boats will return to Annapolis tomorrow, raising boat dealers' hopes of more prosperous times for the marine industry.The second annual Annapolis Spring Boat Show runs through Sunday and, unlike the first, combines both new and used boats in one event.With more than 150 new and used boats, this year's show will offer more boats for sale in one weekend that last spring's event, said Jeffrey Holland, show spokesman.Overall, he noted, fewer boats will be for sale this year, because of a double blow to the industry -- the recession and the 10 percent luxury tax on new boats that cost $100,000 or more, Holland said.

They came from as far as Nevada and Massachusetts to wait by a dock for hours to get a five-minute, up-close glimpse of nine sailing marvels.No matter that a steady rain fell all day. Or that there was a slight chill in the air. And the scant parking downtown didn't seem to make a difference. For the thousands of people who poured into Annapolis the last two days, the Whitbread Round the World yachts were well worth the wait.As the crowds of schoolchildren, sailors and the merely curious in the Whitbread Racing Village down on the City Dock grew by the hour yesterday, city officials were bracing for a jam-packed weekend.

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.

Nearly 200,000 people are expected to descend on Annapolis this weekend when the Whitbread Round the World Race, the Spring Boat Show and the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Walk converge on the 18th-century city.That means restaurants and shops will be jammed, parking spaces will be all but unavailable and traffic jams will dwarf those caused by the fall U.S. Sail and Power Boat Shows and homecoming weekend at the Naval Academy.Here is a short schedule of events and parking suggestions: The Annapolis Salutes Its Maritime Heritage Festival has opened at City Dock, and the Volvo Race Village, with Whitbread yacht displays, open-air exhibits, antique boat exhibits and story-tellers, will open there today.

If warm, sunny weather and a new wave of economic optimism aren't enough to tempt sailors back onto the water and into the marketplace, local boat shows over the next three weekends will add other tantalizing inducements to start them thinking about it again.From the starting lineup, it looks like there's at least one show for every sailor's general or special interests.First, over April 19-21 at Bert Jabin's Yacht Yard at 7310 Edgewood Road on the south side of Back Creek in Annapolis, comes the 15th annual Chesapeake Bay version of Yankee Boat Peddlers' Used Boat Show.

The Annapolis city council voted unanimously last night to grant a lease to the Spring Boat Show despite concerns that it might create a logistical nightmare downtown because it will be held the same weekend the Whitbread Round the World Race yachts are in town.Both events will take place on the last weekend in April, and some fear that will strain hotels, marinas, parking lots and the patience of city residents. Hundreds of thousands of Whitbread followers are expected to descend upon Annapolis at the same time thousands more come for the annual boat show.

You can buy the Naughty Lass or put money down on the Great Dog, but Snake Eyes is off limits and Hope has no asking price.All four boats were stored in cradles at marinas in Shady Side and Galesville, the objects of desire for boaters who sell and resell used craft in an annual spring ritual along the Chesapeake Bay. The deal-makers see the season as a time to launch themselves into something extraordinary."

A clash brewing between two boating titans this spring has the city of Annapolis uncomfortably wedged in the middle.City officials had to choose between playing host to the prestigious Whitbread Round the World Race, a grueling 32,000-mile international sailing competition, or playing host to the popular Spring Boat Show, an annual event that has helped Annapolis gain national recognition in the boating community. They chose both.But when both events set anchors here at the end of April, logistical nightmare could be in store for hotels, marinas, parking lots and city residents as the expected hundreds of thousands of Whitbread followers descend upon Annapolis, and as hordes more come for the boat show.

On any given day, historic, 18th-century Annapolis offers maybe 2,000 coveted public parking spaces for its visitors.Beginning Thursday, more than 200,000 people are expected to try to squeeze their cars into those spaces when the boats of the Whitbread Round the World Race tie up on one side of the harbor, the Spring Boat Show opens on the other side and the crowd attracted by the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Walk hits town.How to handle the potential crowd has occupied the attention of dozens of local, state and federal agencies for more than a year, planning intensely for a logistical nightmare that could make or break this popular tourist city as a venue for big-time attractions.

Once, this was the time of year when one could hear the slap of paint brushes against the wooden hulls. Today, it is the whine of electric buffers cleaning and polishing fiberglass.Whether you are old-fashioned, like me, with a wood bay-built, or up to speed with a plastic boat, it is time to get them ready for the season.If you feel left out because you don't have a boat or you are ready to trade up to higher boat payments, take yourself to Annapolis this weekend or next. The city has two new boat shows: the Annapolis Spring Boat Show and Annapolis Brokerage Boat Show.
