Anode, There is a little marine store in the marina. The manager is Pam Hutchison. She used to work for me and is very knowledgeable about boat stuff and a nice lady.

Yeah, I know who you're speaking about. I was impressed that some lady in a marine store would know what she was talking about. It sounds negative to say that the majority of the time in Miami, they don't know anything but the price.

Boat show time is always a little hectic but I'll try to stick my head in and say hello and tell her I heard nice things said.
Thanks

Looks like I will be driving down for the day. When you guys settle on a time and place, I'll try to make it that day.

Mr. R. T., you can come, and just not tell us who you are.

Having lunch at the Convention Center is sure convenient, but man....that food is really bad and really expensive. Geeze.....we need to get a deal to entertain on someone's boat. Hey, how about calling the Bayliner Dealer and tell him we're flying in a group of perspective buyers. Who's got the biggest boat on the floor? Maybe Searay. Heck, they might even supply the lunch.

I still haven't figured out a good place to meet. I'm thinking we should meet on Saturday because I think most of us will be at the convention center on Saturday.
Time? 1PM?
Where? In the convention center? Short walk from the convention center?
I'm open to suggestions.

I've had some decent food at the Broker's show on Collin's Ave and last year ate a lunch at Sea Isle that wasn't too bad. We typically go over to Bayside or Lincoln Ave depending on the day and crowd level.

Here's a spot on Lincoln that's a couple of blocks away from the convention center and great for people watching.

Nexxt Cafe | Lincoln Road | South Beach

Saturday crowds may be a factor.

Chip that looks like a great place. It's too bad for me that I will have to be working during the show. Skipping the Ft. Lauderdale Show thinking I would be going to the Miami Show was a bad idea. So, while you guys are enjoying the sunshine and life in South Florida I will be slaving in Chattanooga and Nashville.

The show is spread out. Which part? There are a number of transportation options from the airport.
Short answer...not far.

We want to see all of the brokerage boats so we can take a look at different models, specifically trawlers. Where are they located? Thanks.

They are at the Collins Ave section north of the convention center in Miami Beach. There are free shuttles that run for the convention center up there every few minutes. The shuttle service is great and the only way to get around imo.
Where are you staying?

Either at the airport or coconut grove. Will make reservations in the morning.

I will have guests staying overnight during the show, so I may drag them along, wherever it is we would meet. Lincoln Rd. is convenient to the convention parking area, but as noted, the weekends are pretty populous over there. Ultimately, it would be better not to have to leave the convention center and go park somewhere else, assuming that most of us would be spending time there on the same days. I'll be dropping in to view the trawler section and Bayside (sail only) area, cuz the place is not as packed.

The Convention Center is about 12 miles from the airport. The normal non-rush hour drive time is 15 to 20 minutes. It can be up to an hour during the show. I like to come into the Convention Center area from the North by taking SR112 east from the airport.

The Park and Ride will be located at the new Marlins Stadium on the site of the old Orange Bowl.

My store is just two minutes East of the airport if anyone needs local help such as directions or use the bathroom! My guys will also welcome you with a Cuban coffee if you stop in.

Right now my thinking is that we meet Saturday afternoon at the Convention Center.
There is a food tent on the West side of the Convention Center where we might find a table if we don't go at a busy time.

If we manage to meet, don't forget to use the Trawler Forum Secret Handshake. We don't want no outsiders or worse yet, sailboaters sneaking in.
