Default Maimi boat show ?

This will be our third time at the show and it`s always great to see whats new, but what about the in water show. Is it worth the time in taking the shuttle over. Its always nice to come home with a few things looking for some Leverage and Swipes to take home. You never know what kind of crazy $hit you will see.

Any info is great

H*ll yes its worth the trip over! And you need to get yourself on the list to go for a ride. It is a blast going out through Governers Cut!

Well, if you are looking to move up, manufacturers who are in the water will usually offer. Formula is always good about providing rides. At least the years we went. You can sign up at their booth at the show just by asking. We always went with alot of other boat club members who were also looking to move up and they would also score rides and I would tag along. The ride on the 50 Hustler with triple Yanmars and ASD's with Joe at the wheel was one of my favorites! Blasting through Governers Cut in that beast throwing three huge rooster tails was a trip!

Or you can just hang out on the docks, be at the right place, and step on board at the right time.

And the beer in the dock shop is cold and cheap! At least by Miami standards...

Mac, that sounds great, I wish I was in the position to move up, but my daughter wants to go to college in two years. Just looking for a ride, your right timing is everything.

wish list 38TG or 353 Formula

Well...they don't know that. Tell them you are interested and ask if you can ride on the 353. That is exactly what I did. Rode their 382? the same day.

38TG is a whole nother league.

HECK yea it's worth it..It is an amazing display of boats that can be ridden if you are in the market to move up..I have been going to the Miami show for the past 20 years and every year it seems to get better and bigger..AWESOME SHOW...Don't miss it..
