Boats, Cars, and Bimini, here we come!

This week, Talkin' Tourism on Florida’s Treasure Coast did what it loves to do best as hosts Gary Guertin and Robin Hicks-Connors broadcasted the show live from the 36th Annual Stuart Boat Show and 2nd Annual Cruiser Expo.

This week’s featured guest, Tony Parkinson provided all the details of a fabulous event coming January 30—100 Years of Cars, one of the top car shows in the country featuring many one of a kind automobiles from rarely seen private collections. Car contributors and enthusiasts will be flocking to The Pine School in Hobe Sound from all over the country for this one.

Michelle Miller, director of Operations for the Marine Industries Association of the Treasure Coast (MIATC), the owners of the Stuart Boat Show, provided an overview of the association's mission. Marine related industries are a major part of the Treasure Coast economy and the Stuart Boat Show certainly brings this point across. So, what do the show’s vendors have to say about the economy and their expectations? Jim Knoska, of Yacht Watchman International took a turn in the guest seat and gave listeners a personal and honest perspective of the “state of the industry” and what is ahead for the boating industry.

The last guest was Danielle Dunfee, from Bimini Bay Resort. She gave Robin, Gary and listeners a preview of what's in store for the show's live remote from Binimi on Friday, January 22. Looks like the show's hosts are going to need to pack full wet suits and be ready for anything!

Once again it was an information packed show including a wrap of the Pelican Yacht Club Billfish Invitational and the Treasure Coast Sailfish Championship, opinions on the restoration of Bath Tub Beach and lots more. Thanks for listening. If you missed this week's show, download it here.

Hope you can join us this approaching Friday (January 22) at 10 a.m. for the show's live remote from Bimini Bay Resort in the Bahamas.
