MIAMI BOAT SHOW

As the new year rolls into full gear and Pam has returned to work for her "one day" required to finish 25 years with her employer, She did that yesterday and golly gee wiz she''s retired and we are free. (Sort of). Still need to sell the lake house to be really free but at least we can now enter into the travel mode to find "the boat".
If anyone has experience with the miami boat show we are interested in finding out whether this is one of the best places to look for boats.new and brokered.
We would love to find "the boat" now.
From previous experiences trying to get information from on line brokers has proven to be a lot like dealing with USED CAR sales people, 8^). They seem to only want to sell what is at their dock This would be fine if we lived in the north, west, north east, north west, west coast, gulf coast, etc... damn, maybe we should be looking at a jet!!
if anyone might know of an honest and willing broker that they have personal experience with, we would gratefully appreciate your help.
(if you would prefer privacy, please email us.)
thanks to all, we can''t wait to join you!!!!!!!!


hope to have wind in our sails soon

The best thing about cruising a boat show is the number & variety of boats you''ll get to see.
Take lots of notes about what you like & dislike, and ask lots of questions (noting answers).
Regards, and best of luck!
