I am new to this forum and wanted to introduce myself and perhaps solicit some ideas/info. First, I am a complete rookie, so please pardon any mistakes
I may make. I currently am a powerboater, but am looking to mend my ways. My wife and I live in florida
and dream of getting into sailing (back into for me, first time for her). She fell in love with a cat during a work trip to Bermuda
and since then I have been like a dog with a bone on the idea.
We are heading to the miami boat show
to poke around and climb aboard a few of the boats on display, but I had a few questions....
1. Do they let everyone on the boats or do you need an appointment?
2. Will the distributors blow off a guy asking stupid questions, as I am bound to do?
Any information you may have about navigating the show or mistakes
to avoid I welcome your opinions. Feel free to start at the begining as all of our previous boats were bought via a broker, and this is our first boat show
. Also, we are not buying
, just collecting info this time.
