I won't make it to MIA's this year, but I will get to the New Orleans Boat Show held Feb. 5th to the 9th in the Superdome...it's the biggest and best one between Houston and Miami.

Hopefully I'll get down to MIA's next year...I love that place.

My folks are attending Thursday. I plan on being at the Jimmy Buffett show at American Airlines Arena that night.

Boat shows are my kind of fun but no way will I make that one or any other any time soon. The last big one was in Toronto in 2001 and before that Houston in 1994.

What kind of boat are looking for/dreaming about Jetpilot ?

I'm looking at buying a new C&C 121....

I love sailing, and this is one hell of a sailboat. I just sold my C&C 110.

But the Kevlar sail package, and carbon fiber mast/boom options are a little on the expensive side @ 78,000 dollars. Yeah just for the rig, and sails...

Im looking for that Boat show special.... usually 20% off retail... wish me luck.

Wow, you moneybags or what ?

Never heard of C and C before but looks good. A bit cheap that a roller and windlass are $5k extra don't you think ?

Didn't see the engine options anywhere.

Unless you are a serious racer (in which case you would probably buy a dedicated racer) then yes the Kevlar sails are a bit of an extravagance and need more care than older style sails. Carbon fibre mast etc could be worth the money if this is "your boat" for a looong time.

I am jealous !!!!!!
