If you must test a boat at the Miami International Boat Show, it's a good idea to pick a Carolina-inspired vessel like Albemarle's new 33 Express. Offshore winds usually howl during the show, kicking up rough conditions as hundreds of boats head out of the same channel on never-ending sea trials. Heck, it usually gets plenty rough right in the harbor. Carolina boats thrive on such conditions. In other words, if a boat is built to transit Oregon Inlet on a nasty day, the conditions in Miami aren't going to touch it.
