Ahoy, Mateys

Whether you’re deep-sea fishing, partying, dumping bodies, or just cruising around, Miami is always more fun when you own the city’s most quintessential accessory: a boat. Fortunately that’s why we host the South Florida Boat Show, the largest in the southeastern United States. With boats selling for as little as $5000 and as much as $250,000, this four-day expo is sure to have the dinghy, speedboat, or drug-runner you’ve been looking for.

Saturday and Sunday will also feature fishing seminars from guys with names like “On the Flats,” luxurious giveaways including a trip to Bimini, and free fishing rods for the first 50 children in the door. So bring the kiddies and let them re-enact favorite scenes from Pirates of the Caribbean (or Das Boot, if your children are emotionally disturbed). The show, which takes place at the Miami Beach Convention Center, goes on for four days. Today’s nautical fun will take place from 4:00 to 9:00 p.m.
