East Coast Cruising Blogs

My husband and I just embarked on our first-ever cruise down the East Coast, starting in CT and heading toward the Bahamas (and beyond?). I've found this forum and several blogs to be very helpful in preparing us for the liveaboard lifestyle, so I'm now looking to read accounts of other peoples' experiences cruising along the East Coast to glean some useful tips and give us some ideas for what's to come. Suggestions would be much appreciated!

This is my suggestion: Ask what comes to mind. I say this because there are likely some areas that we might not think are important but you and others really might want to know.

Ahoy, looking for a cheapish marina/yard southeast Florida

We are 68' tall so can't access InterCoastal under fixed bridges.
Any tip for a Marina so we can stash the boat and go home for the holiday's??
St. Lucia to Miami.
I would love to get a bottom paint while here. Any tips as to a yard that is REASONABLE??
Thank you.
Kurt & Jill
