I'm wanting to get my first pontoon boat and I think I've decided to make it a Dave Scadden pontoon. Most likely the X5. I've heard and read that he makes good deals at the shows around the NW and I'll be at the Portland one next month. I see that his website shows some Christmas specials right now and I was wondering if those specials would be better than the deals he might give at a sportsman show? Just trying to save a few bucks in my first endeavor into a pontoon. Any help from past experiences would help.....thanks all.
