Hello! From the Florida Keys ;)

My name is Shaina! I was originally born in Florida, raised in Alaska, moved to Georgia, and now very excited to move on back to coastal living in the beautiful Florida Keys! I'm from a small comfortable community in the North Georgia mountains, and this is my first adventure with my husband of 3 years. Our first boat is a 27' Coronado, ironically named "Carm-A". From what I understand she was a massed produced sailboat for beginners. perfect. My long term goal is to sail from the Keys to Venezuela and stopping everywhere possible in the process. (Not necessarily in Carm-A) I'm excited to join this community to learn all I can, and any advice for a woman living on a boat is especially welcome!

Welcome shainamonch, enjoy CF. Your next post will probably be from. ZEEHAG, one of our female sailors now residing in Mazatlan, MX for a few months. Once you learn to read and understand her typing you will get a load helpful info. Happy Sailing.

Re: Hello! From the Florida Keys ;)

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here. Coronado 27s are not necessarily for beginners but a nice stable weekend cruiser designed for near shore sailing. Yes, mass produced but in the age when boat hulls were made very strong.
Congratulations on your new found life.
kind regards,
