It is that time of year again, PBIBS returns to the Palm Beaches! The Palm Beach International Boat Show has arrived again! So, if you make the long haul from Ft. Liquordale to the show in Palm Beach leave your backpack at home they will not allow you into the show with one this year, heightened security you know. Admission is $20 at the gate and only $18 online presales. The boat show this year claims to have an unpredecented amount of boat and yacht companies on display from fishing boats to high performace racing sailboats, schooners and yachts of course. The show starts on Thursday March 26th and goes only until Sun. 29th...unlike FLIBS that lasts five days, Palm Beach gets the short end of the stick. Anywho....special events this year are kinda cool...you have the BASIC AND ADVANCED HANDS ON SKILL TRAINING-which is new this year and only at the boat show in Palm Beach. Taught by industry captains that will supposedly help with your boating skills and perhaps learn some new ones. The spaces for the events are limited so register early and stay for the whole three days and really immerse yourself into the marine world. Don't miss this one....AQUAZONE! This is presented by a company called nautical adventures. "This new attraction will include demos all day that range from live paddle boarding, SUP Yoga, Hobie Kayaks and hovercrafts, life rafts, Lehr propane outboards, a new Evinrude G-2 outboard and a WaveJet self propelled SUP, VersaDock modular docking systems all within their 25 x 50 foot, 15,000 gallon tented pool....holy cow! Dont miss this! This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Palm Beach Boat show, being one of the top five boat shows in the country is not a small feat. Check it out, I will be there taking free CV photos for you and your mates if interested see me on the docks on Saturday March 29th, I will be roving around checking out the scene. Lots to see and do and lots of dockwalking and networking fun to be had! See you there! Chef Peter Z from the Sea signing out!
