Flying to Miami Monday to look at boats

Hi everyone,

Well I made some posts on here about my wife and i's cruising plans and gotta a lot of good feedback.

I'm happy to say We are making our first concrete steps to purchasing a boat.
I'm heading down to Miami Monday to check out a beneteau 473, hunter 460, and a jenneau.

I just wanted to share our journey with the forums and hopefully this fall we will begin posting pictures of our journeys on the seas.

Wish me luck! Hopefully I'm not wasting my time on these boats....

Good luck!

Are you working with a broker? They might be able to steer you towards some other options, as well, while you are in town.

Yeah I'm actually meeting with two brokers who are going to show me some others we might be interested in. The one suggested center cockpit boats but I'm on the fence about those, but you never know we'll see.
