I just thought I would start a thread to see who was going to the Miami Boatshow this year. I will be flying in on this Friday (13th) and should be into the show (convention center) by noon. I plan to be there all day. Then we will split Saturday between Sea Isle (2/3) and Collins Ave (1/3).

I would be there with my Father and Son too. It's been a dream to go to this show with my father for almost 4 decades....now I get to go with him and my little guy. It's going to be a great time.

Jeff,

Elsa and will be there. Right now we are on our trawler near Jacksonville. Our plans are to drive down Thursday night do the show Friday and Saturday and then drive back to Jacksonville Sunday morning.

Please stop by the Mercury booth and find out what they are unveiling. Most of the threads on here speculate a 400HP Verado. I am hoping for a 200HP version of their highly successful 150HP Fourstroke.

Will report the merc unveiling.

They just did a photo shoot here where I live in key largo of the new '42. Sexy.

Just saw an ad for the EZ Loader Trailer "Robo Trailer Valet". In the place of a tongue jack, looks like a mini tank with rubber tracks, remote control and rechargeable battery.
Demonstrations at the Miami Boat Show - EZ Loader booth #3231.
Let us know if it's as cool as it looks.

Mambo, Everything I have read and seen leads me to believe it is a 400 Verado...

Don, I will keep and eye out for you and Elsa. BTW When did you move onto a "snowbird" trawler? That's a great idea for a winter get away. Sure beats a condo!

Yeah Jeff, that trawler idea has my wheels turning. It is the same reasoning as to why I have given up on buying a cabin in northern Michigan, the taxes are a killer. With a large boat/trawler you can have a cabin in a different place every winter.

Jeff,

Elsa and I bought a Mainship trawler in December. It was in Norfolk so we moved it to Florida for the winter. We have been able to get down here to enjoy her for a week or so every month. When spring comes we will move her up to her new home in Cheboygan.

Apparently, they unveil the winners yesterday at the MIBS: http://www.boatingindustry.com/news/2015/02/12/ miami-international-boat-show-innovation-award-winners-honored/

There isn't much details, but it seems the E-TEC G2 won in the Outboard Engines category and the Navionics SonarCharts in the Consumer Electronics.

Has anyone seen anything significant offered from Yamaha Outboards?

Thanks
