Time for boat show

Boats are a big part of fishing and are as diverse as the catches reeled in.

Local anglers may be busy reeling in fish but a select few are taking time out to check out some of the prettiest boats in Florida.

That is because the 2009 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show takes place from this Thursday through to next Monday.

The Cayman Islands Angling Club is slated to have a booth set up at the Broward County Convention Centre, one of six venues for the show.

Other locales for the five day gathering include the Bahia Mar Yachting Centre, Fort Lauderdale Grande Hotel and Yacht Club and Pier 66 Hotel and Marina.

The show is in its 50th year and normally attracts large yachts, elaborate exhibitors and a slew of enthusiasts.
