- A place to hide.
- Captain’s lounge.
- A tent or location for government information and homeland security rule guidebook for all flagged yachts. This would help captains prepare with state-to-state rules and laws on operation, waste discharge. etc.
- A write up of “what’s new at the show”.
- The really big yachts should start anchoring off the beach, and running launch service from the beach near the Bahia Mar footbridge over A1A
- More bathrooms and better food.
- More access to the tech and installation process.
- Better information on parties and events outside the show well before FLIBS. I travel from the West Coast so I have to plan hotel and flights well in advance.
- Tickets for family
- Better safety. If a yacht ever caught on fire, it would be a domino effect of boats burning. Once you are locked in the show, you are trapped. It is not a very safe set up. Add bad shore power to the mix, boats with no crew living on board while plugged into power, and it is just a matter of time.
