Re: hello all new and lv this site

"Hi" floatinhippie -
Sorry, couldn't resist.

Two suggestions -
1) Know all the appropriate maritime laws and regulations and obey them.
2) To live free in an unfree world, keep a low profile.

Have fun.

Re: hello all new and lv this site

If the boat is big enough for you, that's all that matters. I have heard comments from some boaters that 45 is too small and from others that over 30' is too big. Once met two couples living on a 27' boat in the Caribbean so 23' should be doable for one.

I live in Florida but had to google map to find Debary. So is your boat on a trailer or do you keep it on the coast somewhere?
