Welcome, As a Floridian... please bring money
... we need all we can get!!!
You will probably find some good boat deals if you keep your eye open. Lots of boats available but sellers don't seem to understand they have devalued as much or usually more than homes in the past few years. Just have an idea what your use will be and select based on that criteria.
Plenty of opinions here to help or confuse you! Just dare ask!
Maybe I'll see you both down island. I'm spending more and more time on the boat and will be moving base in the next couple of years to new locations.
