If memory serves, I have covered the annual Miami International Boat Show 13 times. The first ten were for Powerboat magazine when “coverage” meant wining and dining our advertisers. (How I miss those days.) The last three have been for boats.com and for speedonthewater.com, and coverage means actually having to gather news and produce stories. What a difference an economic recession makes.
Still, I’m always game for the Miami Show, and this year I’m particularly pumped. Opening on February 14, this year’s show will feature some of the coolest and most-anticipated high-performance powerboat hardware in the history of the event.
