Hello From Marathon

Just bought a Bristol 41.1 and sailed to Marathon Florida, my new home base. Just want to give my thanks to the inventor of the GPS. Without it I would still be at sea or at the bottom of it. This is my 3rd boat over 40 feet. More than 3/4ths of the planet is water... hope to see more of it .

Re: Hello From Marathon

Welcome to the forum...Congrats on a fine boat.

Greetings and welcome to Florida!
My soul is full of longing for the secret of the sea,
and the heart of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through me.

Re: Hello From Marathon

Welcome to Marathon...

Don't forget to follow along on the morning "cruisers net" 0900 everyday on VHF 68. Arrivals and departures, announcements, comments and needing help, buy sell trade give away, and a little morning trivia to wake up the brain.

See ya round the harbor...
