My first boat show was the Miami International Boat Show in 2013. There was something special about it–walking around for miles and miles seeing all kinds of products. I ended up bringing home several bags of boat literature. There was nothing like it.
Since I had never been to Miami, of course, I also brought my camera and got to catch more than just the boats and surrounding area.
While there, I had a feeling, some sort of an epiphany. I left Miami with this need to do anything and everything with boats. Forever–and ever–for the rest of my life.
From then on, I attended all of the smaller shows that I could, and even the Fort Lauderdale show later on. Looking back, it was kind of a mistake going to a big show first THEN the smaller shows. But, nevertheless, a show is a show and I still have the same happy feeling.
