Re: Best Boat City

More details will get you more responses: what characteristics do you want in this city? In what region?

Re: Best Boat City

Best boat city for what? Warm winters, easy ocean access, fishing, marine repair & maintenance, slip rates, entertainment, good sailing winds, boating market, restaurants, museums, fresh water docking, clear water & reefs, beaches, night life, draft & vertical clearance...?

What would be a "boat city"? Maybe this is why I cruise to so many different places. No city has everything. What are you looking for?

Re: Best Boat City

well yes thats very true. It just seems like our town is lacking things like health club steam room, r ball, movies, just more city stuff i guess. And been going through a very depressing divorce and marathon is ten guys per girl, but thats not what it is all about of course. The diving and the nature is very good down here, but things change. Thank you very much for your help

Re: Best Boat City

Considering your present location, why don't you start by visiting Coconut Grove? Great sailing, cosmopolitan area, cheap and efficient public transportation. I spent a couple of weeks there about two years ago and really liked it. Both moorings and slips available.

Re: Best Boat City

Hey Jim thanks for asking! How have you been? R ball? jajajaja. Furthest things from my mind. Trying to get rid to many girls, huge problem. some over 40 gone. Some under 20 gone. 4 that want to mary, Gone. down to around 4. One I really like. VERY, VERY Happy!
So happy left my boat in Mexico and flew to Cuba for an extra month. But have some crossings under my belt now so that is good!

Re: Best Boat City

Wierdly, a group of scientists researched this 'joke' an concluded that a length of rope (based upon their data and findings) is most likely to be 12 inches, because usually most people are confined to this length due to the lack of equipment to measure further

Personal research revealed that a piece of rope is exactly 2 times the distance from the mid point to either end... at least in the southern hemisphere.
