Meet Me in Fort Lauderdale

flibs-2008As you read this, I am preparing to immerse myself in a scene much like the one shown above. This photo (by my talented marine journalism colleague Forest Johnson) is of last year’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. This year’s sprawling festival of boating mania opens to the press tomorrow, and to the general public on Friday.

I’ll actually be starting my interviews aboard yachts as of 5 o’clock tonight, right after my plane lands. So many boats, so little time…

On Friday morning at the show, during the general meeting of Boating Writers International, I will be one of three speakers on a panel titled “Online Success Stories.”  I’ll be discussing the website you’re viewing now, my yacht charter site CharterWave, and my upcoming new launch, BoaterMouth (which I’ll have more details about soon).

Hope to see you on the docks in Florida, or at Friday morning’s BWI event at the Bahia Mar Hotel.
