"So we’re back from the Miami Boat show, with card-loads of photographs and pages and pages of notes. Lots of sweet new rides, efficient new engines, amazing electronics displays. A lot of this stuff we’re going to feature in Florida Sportsman and Best Boat magazines in the coming months, but for some digital fun, immediate gratification, here’s a quick scan of 25 random but very interesting highlights.

This unique design allows for raising and lowering of an antenna from under the top with a hand crank – no power required. This represents a significant convenience for boaters and a safety feature as well, since the antenna can be adjusted without having to climb up top to adjust. Click here for additional information.
