Matt Radich of Active Water Sports was setting up his space at the Portland Boat Show which kicks off Wednesday at the Expo Center. He says boat buying was huge just before the recession hit in 08. Then it hit bottom until a few months before last year’s show. Sales have picked up since then and buyers are back big time. Radich says his boats are for families who spend their summers participating in water sports. He has previously owned boats as well as new watercraft at this year’s show.
