Hi from Melbourne, Florida

Hi Everyone,

I just registered here and wanted to say Hi. Over the last several years when I would google something I had a question about concerning cruising or sailboats it would inevitably link to a thread on this website, so I figured "why not join?"

I have a Cape Dory 28 and keep it at Sundance Marina, which is located in Melbourne, Florida on the ICW. I'm looking to start cruising throughout the Bahamas and the Florida Keys in the next year or two.

I hope to see some of you on the water!

-David

Thanks for all the responses! Yes, this forum is very useful and entertaining.

Spending the winter over in the Bahamas sounds great. I hope you guys have alot of fun. I might be going over there around Christmas for about a week or two if the weather is okay. If so, maybe I can look you up. I have never been there before so I need to figure out the best place to enter and the best anchorages.

Ram, if I decide to go I will let you know. I almost bought an Allied Seawind in Lake Worth. I would have except I got a great deal on this Cape Dory.

Aloha David,
Welcome aboard! Cape Dory is a great boat. There are a couple other CD 28 owners here on the forum.
