US boat-makers try to regain their wind

Multi-billion dollar boat-building industry in the US hopes to emerge from the decline.

    The Miami Boat Show in the US state of Florida is well known for its glitz and glamour, showcasing the very latest, luxury yachts.

    Every year, more than two thousand boat-makers from across the globe gather here to showcase the very best money can buy.

    But behind the gleaming hulls is a multi-billion dollar industry that's been struggling to emerge from the decline.
