Hello from the Keys !

We are new to here, but not to our boat. We have been living on our HC33 for 5 years. We started in the Tampa, FL area and are now in the Keys with intentions to cruise up the east coast next spring and then who knows what.

We'll be down there after the 1st of the year. Also thinking of going up the East coast as well in Spring.
Harry and MeLinda Schell are dock neighbors here in Bradenton at Twin Dolphin Marina. (I think you know them)

Yep. We know Harry and Melinda. We used to be in Twin Dolphins a few years back. When we first got down here, we attempted to look you guys up and missed you by a couple of days I think. We're at the Marathon Marina until spring. We decided to try a Marina down here for a bit from a change from the mooring, but feel free to look us up when you get down here.

Sounds great. We will either pick up a mooring or stay at Dockside. There are several boats from Twin Dolphin going down there this year.
See ya'll down there.

Sounds great. Dockside the restaurant closed down about a week ago, but I believe that the marina is still open.

I heard that the resturant was closed as well. Hopefully it will be back open when we get down there. We usually add to the local economy while we are there, especially the bars
Actually heading down there next week in a land-yacht to see the sights in KW. I'm sure we will stop by and check on things.
Melinda was excited I found you and says 'Hi'.

We also came down from the Tampa area, we were across the river from twin dolphins at regatta pointe. Now we are living aboard a mooring (b1) at the city marina. Look us up when you are in town, as we have found some of the better happy hours around :-)

Heard that Dockside should be re-opening with new management within a week or so.
