Isabel's departure good news for Norwalk boat show
The departure of Isabel is especially good news for the thousands of exhibitors and boat lovers expected this weekend for the 28th annual International In-Water Boat Show at Cove Marina in Norwalk.
Remnants of Isabel sailed through Norwalk Cove Marina overnight on Thursday pounding tents and hundreds of boats at the boat show. All week crews had been gearing up for the worst while hoping for the best.
But in just a few hours the scene changed dramatically. By the time most of the exhibitors woke up and stepped off their boats Friday morning, they were greeted with clear and sunny skies.
By 8 a.m. it was business as usual. Exhibitors were showing off boats and demonstrating products, with the storm a distant memory.Boat show officials say there were no major damages, just a few displays went down.
