Here are some additional
pictures and a short video I
threw together to give a quick
overall impression of what we
saw and experienced at MACNA.
Here is the main entrance to the
To give you an idea of the tropical surroundings, here's a pic of my wife in one of the many seating areas throughout the hotel complex.
She and I were lucky enough to
get a room on the ground floor,
right in front of the pool. No
There was quite a bit of room for all the exhibits. There was never a feeling of being squeezed in.
I mentioned my recent move from Tropic Marin Pro to Instant Ocean salt at the IO booth. He was pleased

IceCap had a large booth, but they filled it with two full sixed couches. They had almost nothing on display.
Roger, at the Tunze booth,
was as informative and helpful

titanium shafts and vibration
dampers that Tunze has brought

models (6205s in my case).
Reef2Reef.com was showing equipment from Avast Marine Works.
Justin Casp, from Avast, was
there from time to time (that's
not him in the pic). He
mentioned he'll be coming out
with a new Ozone Reactor in next
couple of months.
The DelTec booth was constantly busy. They had just about all of their products on display. I picked up one of their new refractometers
