Re: Bought the Boat

I just looked up your boat on sailboatdata.com.

I truly hope you have the shoal draft, which indicates it is at 5.0 ft. If you have the regular one, your going to have trouble in the ICW; it would have to be a very, very careful trip.

The same goes for sailing in the Bradenton/Tampa Bay area. Make sure you watch your charts AND your depth finder religiously, there are just way too many shoals around; fortunately they are soft (don't ask me how I know).

If you do not have it, get Seatow insurance. It's cheap, and I would not be without it in Florida.

What a great interior design though. I understand the quivering of the thighs.

Re: Bought the Boat

I second getting some kind of tow insurance. And only buy the top of the line one, the entry insurance doesn't cover crap.

Re: Bought the Boat

So long as you're happy, to hell with everyone else.

Enjoy your boat and happy sailing ahead.

Doesn't every boat have a problem at one point or another? Or do you have a magic boat that requires no repair or maintenance? Oh, wait, I get it. You're trying to make me feel bad about my new boat. Nice.
