Local weather gurus are predicting phenomenally warm weather this weekend, making it an ideal time to get out on the water, and also to to check out the Northern California Fall Boat Show at Jack London Square.

Although not as large as the spring Strictly Sail Pacific show, there will be at least a couple dozen boats on display, and many brokers will be on hand offering special deals on both new and used boats — power as well as sail. Although there are now signs that our lousy economy is beginning to turn around, brokers are still highly motivated to move their current inventory at historically low prices. Who knows, this could be your chance to buy that dream boat for a song.

Show hours are noon to 6 p.m. today and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the weekend. (Adults $10; kids under 15 free.) See the website, or call (916) 372-4239 for show info.
