How are you dealing with covid-19 concerns?
We are committed to making and shipping shirts as safely as possible. Our printing and shipping staff will wear masks and gloves at work.
We encourage everyone to pre-order and have shirts shipped directly to you this year. This will avoid lines at the show and guarantee you get your show gear in the color and sizes you want. If you prefer, you can still purchase shirts at the show. We aim to make your show purchase touch-free and safe.
The show has it's own set of COVID guidelines in place. Briefly, they are as follows. For the full list, please visit the show website.
The following regulations have been put in place for the 2020 United States Powerboat Show (Oct 1-4) and United States Sailboat Show (Oct 8-12). As state and federal guidelines are defined, we will continue to update this list.
Daily attendance to the shows will be regulated through pre-sold tickets. Each day will have a strict maximum capacity level.
Everyone entering showgrounds is required to wear a face mask at all times.
Everyone entering showgrounds will be temperature screened. All attendees are encouraged to park at the Navy Marine Corps Stadium for temperature checks, ticket scanning, and hand stamps. Stations will also be located at Yacht Basin Gate and Main Gate areas.
Tent configurations have been altered to include one-way only walkways through all tents and air handling systems purifying and moving air.
Touchless hand sanitizing and washing stations, as well as face mask dispensers, will be made accessible throughout the show.
Showgrounds will close each day at 6:30pm (5:00 p.m. on the final day of each show). Exhibitors and attendees will have 30 minutes to make their way to the exits. After this, cleaning and disinfection of the show premises will begin.
All meetings, classrooms, workshops, and VIP areas will be limited to 50% capacity, allowing for proper physical distancing.
No after-hours events will be allowed on the show grounds this year.
Due to Maryland Health Department guidelines, no dogs or strollers will be allowed this year.
What size do I need?
Typically if you have a favorite shirt that is a similar style, it will more than likely be the same size as that. We use standard-sized shirts. You can check out some size charts HERE.
How much is shipping?
ALL SHIPPING IS FREE* FOR 2020 BOAT SHOW GEAR ORDERS! (USA only - charges will apply on shipping to Canada.)
Do you accept returns? What is your exchange policy?
Yes. You can return or exchange any unworn and unwashed merchandise for up to 7 days after the delivery date. Contact us and we’ll email a prepaid return-shipping label to you. Due to limited runs of Boat Show Gear it is best to make returns ASAP to insure the best possibility of getting a replacement shirt.
If the shirt is defective (a hole, ink in the wrong place, bad stitching) we will replace at no cost to you.
If you need a different size, or a different design, there will be an additional one way-shipping fee. Just send the shirt back ASAP (at your cost) and we we will send the replacement shirt or equal value at no additional cost to you.
If you just don’t like the shirt (cannot imagine that) we ask that you ship it back to us and we’ll credit your full purchase price (less the shipping costs) when we receive it.
Do the shirts shrink?
Some do, some don’t. The garment-dyed mens' shirts hardly shrink at all. They started as a white shirt that is then dyed, washed and shrunk at that stage. The rest of our shirts - Women’s, Kid’s, and the Men’s White and Ash or Sport Gray are the more normal “pre-shrunk” you might be used to but will still shrink @ 3 - 5% if dried a full cycle in a hot dryer.
Where are the shirts made?
We try to source the best shirts available; they just don’t make them all in America any more. Much of the cotton is grown in America, some of the shirts are dyed in America. However, we can guarantee that all of them are printed in America and the designs are done by friendly sailing folks.
