Ooohhh, Cherubini 44, very nice!
Anyway, now that I've mostly stopped droolling....it's been a number of years since I've sailed the Gulf Coast so I don't have recent experience with marinas
there, but do have a few general suggestion. The coast from New Orleans
is a great cruising ground. I would try and put the boat as close to the coast as possible -- it is a long way down from the north end Mobile Bay. Putting the boat further south in Mobile Bay or in Pensacola
or somewhere in the Mississippi
Sound would give you quicker access to more cruising options. Mississippi
Sound alone is a very good mini-cruising ground.
Any issues with importation to the US?
