Miami Boat Show

We had a great time at the Miami Boat Show last week. We went with our friends Steve and Colleen. We took a drive down the Florida Keys to Marathon on the first day and then we spent three solid days trying to see everything there was to see at the huge boat show. We were exhausted, but it was lots of fun.

Chris and Robin are friends from Kemah. We ran into them at the boat show and they invited us to spend one morning on their catamaran s/v Tucan Dream. They are anchored out in Miami for the boat show and will soon be leaving to cruise in the Bahamas and beyond.

We had a great trip and as a bonus Troy won a watermaker that retails at around $5,000.00. It will be great on our boat so we are really excited about that. Also, I won honorable mention at the Miami Boat Show Photo Contest called Discover Boating. Here is the picture that won:
