Contrary to popular belief, boats are actually much safer than cars, which inexplicably sink every time you drive them on water. Check out the latest water-road navigation systems with today's Groupon: for $7, you get a one-day general admission to the Trawler Fest Boat Show, taking place January 27-29, 2011 at the Bahia Mar Beach Resort & Yachting Center. Choose any one of the three days. You must be 18 or older to attend.
The Trawler Fest Boat Show is an in-water showcase of more than 60 cruising motorboats and also includes a shoreside expo, seminars (at extra cost), and demonstrations of boating equipment and procedures. Fort Lauderdale is the first stop on this five-port event, which also includes San Diego, Baltimore, Anacortes (WA), and Warwick (RI). Produced by PassageMaker Magazine, Trawler Fest is a playground for boat lubbers and abandoned fish-people looking for a way back home. This deal gives you access to afternoon activities, including interactive demonstrations on topics such as life-raft inflation, man-overboard recovery, and engine-room inspections. Nautical newbies can learn a thing or two from PassageMaker Magazine and Ocean Voyager, two publications included in your complimentary welcome kit, along with a reusable tote bag and an assortment of yachty schwag, which is far less abominable than its homophonic cousin, yeti schwag.
For an additional cost, you can attend seminars on safety, anchoring, finding your personal cruising style, and blaming your artfully popped collar on the brisk sea breeze.
