That sucks for the show, promoters, venders, and staff. I know a few guys that were supposed to ride in that. Here is a link to the water actually pouring out... http://www.cbsatlanta.com/story/1650...auses-flooding

First vid said there was some cosmetic damage to some of the boats. I smell discounts!

Whoa! Glad to hear they're optimistic about opening still!

How ironic that water delay's a boat show.

just like rain on your wedding day

Jason, who do you know that was supposed to ride in it? They weren't very generous with the invites.

I don't understand how a bubble collapsed the pool?

Joe, I know Jeff Mathis said something about riding and I think Vinny Knapp was too. I'm sure all the guys from Gravity were riding since they had a hand in helping build it. I didn't quite understand the "bubble" either.

That sucks. I hope all of the GFCI outlets on the floor were working. I bet that is the last time you see one of those pools indoors - at least for a while. Someones insurance just went up too.

They should discount that Malibu at the the end of the video for having such an ugly color scheme. What a waste of such a nice boat.....

Oh noes! All of the boats and gear got WET! I hope they are ok! :D

j/k - that is a big mess but at least it happened during a show where 90% of the products were made to go into the water!
