I’m getting all excited. In less than a month, the Miami International Boat Show will open its doors! In my opinion, Miami is the best high performance boating venue in the world. It’s a chance for me to escape Wisconsin’s winter and catch up with my industry friends and many of our customers. And there’s always something new. This year’s show appears to be no exception.
Four first-class boat builders will have new boats with Mercury Racing 1350 power on display: Cigarette Racing Team, Dave’s Custom Boats (DCB), Marine Technology (MTI) and, confirmed Feb 11, there will be a new model Nor-Tech at the Convention Center, too!
Randy Scism told me, January 24, that he will have a twin 1350 powered MTI on the water in one of Mercury Racing’s slips at the marina. (I’m hoping it will be John Woodruff’s beautiful new 48, but I’m not fussy! I’ll be satisfied with Bob’s or Albert’s.) We’ll also have a 525 EFI powered Sunsation XRT with X-haust silencing, another 525 Formula FasTech, a Spectre cat with outboards and a military Whaler 37 Justice with three “cop motor” Verados. You have to see all this!
Please stop by and say, “Hello! What’s new?”
