Many of the exhibitors at the 54th annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show had similar observations — the weather was good for a change and there seemed to be more people.

Five days of sunshine speaks for itself, but as it turns out there were a lot more people. Organizers reported Wednesday that gate attendance for the Oct. 31-Nov. 4 show was up 28 percent from the prior year and the highest since the 2006 show.
