It is that time of year already, one of the biggest boat show in Florida is about to happen this weekend in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida
I was there last year for the first time and there were definitely lots to see and lots of people to talk to if you want to spend the day there. Beyond the skiffs and bay boats I’ll be checking out big lavished high $$$ yachts and sport fishing, livin da vida loca boats that will be on display there.
Though I will be there on Friday mainly to network and see what’s new in the fishing arena there’s lots more to see than that.
Here is the official show discription.
“Fort Lauderdale, Florida, lives up to its nickname as “Yachting Capital of the World”, hosting the 51st Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show on October 28-November 1, 2010.
