Sailing in Florida

I looking for someone in Miami area or Florida keys that that would like to make some money taking me out sailing so I can get some experience. I already took 20 hour basic keel boat course so I have little experience. Just looking to have some fun sailing in Florida.

Re: Sailing in Florida

There is a lot of sailing school and instructors in South Fl. Is that what you are looking for?

I think he is looking for an inexpensive way of getting some experience and hours at the helm.... Instructor time and boats are expensive!!!

Re: Sailing in Florida

Offline was that comment really necessary? You don't think I already know that. Thanks for showing everybody your true colors. You can have all the toys in the world, what good are they if you have nobody to share them with? You sound like a lonely person. This is my first and only reply to your silly remark.

Thanks for nothing, cheap cheap

Re: Sailing in Florida

I am very sure that you took my comment way out of context and that not everyone wants to pour money down the belly of the beast....... Now If you would have checked your PM you would have seen that there was a message saying that you should contact me if you were ever up in West Palm..

Offense was never my intention.

Re: Sailing in Florida

Electronic translation is a killer. I have done considerable work to try and preclude misunderstandings in text messages, Internets machine messages, etc.

The fuel for the misunderstandings is the unfortunate fact that negativity has been the most common assumption. Rather than hear a joke or sarcasm, it has been heard as serious and offensive.

This is where guy-ness comes in and it is shrugged off and a beer is offered.
