It's that time of year again for the largest sailboat show on the west/left coast in Oakland, CA. Located in the San Francisco Bay. Cost $12-15/day to attend or buy the 4 day pass for $50.
There will be lots of free guest speakers (included with admission price) who have sailed all over the world plus lots of sailboats that you can step aboard and check out all the nice features that can be used in truck conversions.
And they have a nice party on Friday and Saturday night with live music and free beer that's included with admission.

"I have marveled often at the thin line that divides success from failure and the sudden turn that leads from apparently certain disaster to comparative safety." Ernest Shackleton, Antarctic Explorer, Sea and Land, 1874-1922.
