Hello from Burnt Store Marina

I have been reading Cruisers Forum blogs for quit some time and now very happy to report I am the new Skipper of a Hunter 450 Passage. I have named her SAILUTE. I purchased her from a Captain that lived in the Uk and had her moored in Ft Lauderdale. Last weekend with the help of a Captain I hired we moved her to our new home at Burnt Store Marina, Florida. I donít have much experience at sailing and am very anxious to learn. Iím looking for any opportunity to expand my knowledge and get some experience.
Happy Sailing and
SAILUTE

Re: Hello from Burnt Store Marina

Did you move her from Ft. Lauderdale to Burnt Store? If so what route did you take?

We sailed down to Marathon where we crossed into the gulf under 7 mile bridge then dodging all the crab traps came up the coast to Charlotte Harbor. We dropped anchor at Marathon for about 8 hours to replace a broken fan belt on the motor, just about the only spare part not on board. The whole trip was 52 hours

Great trip! I thought maybe you went through the canal with the mast down.

Congratulations on your new boat!
