You'll love the boat show...went to our first one going on 2 years this upcoming February. Luckily we scored a ride on a Black Thunder, but at the time our friends that we went with were seriously considering buying one. We drove over to Key Biscayne to get the ride. $30 there.....$30 back.

Hearing that it's tough to find a place near the convention center right now. We have friends that reserve well in advance every year and they were pushed way down the strip from where they usually stay.

Good luck. You'll love the show. We thought we'd stay for a few there when it opened...they were kicking us out at closing time.

Just booked!
It'll be our first time to Miami. Flying in on the Thurs. the 14th, and heading home on Sun. the 18th.
Wife found a flight/car/room package for reasonable about 4 miles from the convention center. Don't plan on spending much time at the hotel.
So what's the story on the parties or get togethers??

We'll be there the 8th - 20th if not longer. I'll put my cell # up closer to the show dates. We're staying about three blocks from the Convention Center. Besides the OSO/FPC party there's usually a PRA party and some other stuff going on. You can't miss Mango's and we're going to see if the Mansion will be open. We usually eat out every night, so everyone get in touch.

I am also intertested in getting a short ride in a boat. I am new to the whole big boat scene and have not even seen my recently accuired 30' scarab in the water yet. It would be great to get a short ride in a fast boat. Myself along with a buddy of mine will be in town the 13th-16th. Anyone willing to give a fellow OSO member a ride to remember, I am willing to chip in some for gas!

Thanks in advance

It appears that the Miami Boat show is NOT going to be what it use to be. The show is only a few weeks away and it seems like nobody is going or if they are...there isn't much chatter. Is OSO having a party this year? Maybe it's the $200+ a night lodging that south beach wants when it use to be $100-120. What's the deal. I'm ready to go but as of now i still have not be able to find a place to stay. What's the deal.
