The Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show ends today (11-9-15). We went back by Boat on Saturday to bring you a look at this spectacular event from the water.

The Popup Purse boat annoyed everyone. I can't imagine who would buy a bay from these guys?

Small woodie

I loved this classic little woodie cruising by the big boys.

The Boat Show boat traffic was packed with gawkers and a few hawkers.
