The docks were a controlled calm yesterday, considering that opening day of the 58th annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is a day earlier than every before. For the first time, the show opens on a Wednesday and closes Sunday evening. Traditionally, the show opened Thursday and ended Monday. Photos by Tom Serio and Dorie Cox
