Trawler Fest @ Riviera Beach Jan 26-31.

We just purchased our 37 Nordic Tug this past summer and I was wondering if this event was something to consider? I have been to the Miami Boat Show several times, but because of the venue change I may not go again. Is Trawler Fest a really great event or is there a better one to spend your time attending?

PGItug, please come to the Miami show in February. It is going to be much nicer on Virginia Key than it ever was on Miami Beach. Instead of fighting traffic and looking for parking, there will be nine places to catch a free water taxi and thirteen places to catch a shuttle bus. You could park at any of the Metrorail stations, get off at the Vizcaya station and catch a shuttle bus to the show just minutes away.

The admiral and I will be there - our first Trawlerfest. Looking forward to a number of the seminars. Also hope to do side trips to look at a PDQ 34, a GH37, and a Defever 44. Lots of fun!

Went to the one in Stuart about eight years ago, made a weekend out of it and enjoyed myself. This was in the beginning and there were maybe 40 or so boats. Most were owned and the owners were on board. That was good because of the variety of boats and actually being able to talk to the owners about pros and cons about there boats. I did not attend any of the seminars. I have been wanting to go back but haven't made it.
