The Charleston "In Water" Boat Show is this weekend's big event. So put down the weed wacker, forget about Lowes and Home Depot, grab the kids and head to Brittlebank Park and the Bristol Marina.
Can you tell Life Floating By is big on boats?
The event kicked off Thursday afternoon and all I can say is WoW, what an improvement over past boat shows in Charleston. At this weekend's boat show you can step aboard million dollar boats like the Middleton 58' sport fishing boat below.

In case you don't know, boaters dump their shoes before stepping aboard their boats and you'll be expected to do the same on all of the show boats. So I suggest wearing flops or slip on loafers or better yet boat shoes that you can slip off. (Yes, boaters even take off the "boat shoes" when they step aboard, odd isn't it but its common courtesy.)
There's plenty to do, a lot of food and drink and be sure to have the kids stop by the US Coast Guard Sector Charleston tent. Fishing demonstrations are held every two hours at The Charleston Angler Bass Tub.
More information about the boat show at this link Charleston In-Water Boat Show and check out the details on the Middleton 58' at Barrier Island Yacht Sales. Better yet visit the boat in person at the show this weekend and have Captain Lane Jefferies give you a personal tour.
Also at the Charleston "In Water" Boat Show you'll find the crew of Southern Comfort happy to tell you about life on the water and all the facts about yacht chartering. Just look for the White Southern Comfort Polo Shirts and ask them about taking a weekend cruise down the intercoastal waterway to Beaufort, Savannah or even Hilton Head's Harbortown Yacht Basin.
