Boats

.
This page is currently under (re)construction, "pardon our dust" until we get it right...

.

We have added this category on boats, boating, and fishing at the request of visitors noting our oversight in omitting the popular activities. We are initially just plopping in whatever videos we already happen to have with boats in them, but will get around to posting many types of unusual and even strange boats that traverse the waterways of South Florida as well as delving into local fishing. Note that with the down economy and high fuel prices, area boat traffic has noticeably decreased, making it even more difficult to capture these videos.

Near Sunset at North Beach Docks
.

Sea Legs III deep sea fishing boat returning to docks at sunset
.

The "idle speed" sign is intended to slow down boat traffic in an area frequented by West Indian manatees (the sign is lopsided because it was hit by a boat that lost control because it was going too fast).
