Then you can just relax and buy the real boat.

Mine was an army 1947 Triumph 500 flathead hardtail. Had a lot of fun on that old bike and met my wife on it.

Well in Ft Lauderdale grab the next water taxi by your hotel it is a fun cruise around on the water and informative. It also give a lay of the land, I mean water.
