Hi Everyone!

OK... so I don't have a boat. What I do have is a large network of friends who all seem to be into boats. So I thought I'd join this board to watch, read and learn. If anyone has any suggestions or comments, I'd truly appreciate any and all assistance.

I currently reside in Philadelphia and travel to Florida often. I'm hoping to make the BIG CHANGE in the next year. I love the water. I can't stress that enough. I think I was a mermaid in a previous life.

So here I am, open to suggestions, and thank you all for tolerating this "newbie".

Caroline

Welcome aboard. Sounds like you are a prime candidate for crewing, especially when in Florida (assuming you're near the water). The good thing with that is, it can give you an opportunity to see a variety of boats, if you intend to eventually get one yourself.

Best of luck,
