Hi, I saw there was already a recent questions about the best boat shows. I have been trying to decide between Miami
(can't do both as both mean a long flight and a day to get there!
) We are very seriously working toward a liveaboard
life (within the next two years) and our objectives at the boat show
1. see several different brands of catamarans in the 40-50' range (leaning toward Dean and Dolphin or an old Prout ... but open minded... depends in the end on what's available used and the end oat budget)
2. take a glance at the monohulls (although feel pretty sure about a cat)
3. talk with current
or been there done that liveaboard
families and circumnavigating families... I see at Annapolis
that there are several seminars by Jimmy Cornell, Pam Wall, and Liza Copeland
4. Meet with potential broker to help us in our boat search to take place later
So... which of these two shows has the widest variety of cats and best speakers ... or they equal??
The input is greatly appreciated! (You can laugh... yes, we're in Montana... no not on a lake even... yes we've been on lots of boats....
