Welcome to the forum. We are also on the St. Johns River about five miles north of Green Cove by Doctors Lake until heading south to the Keys after the new year.

Thankyou all. I'm spending the winter in Indian Harbour Beach Fl. near Dragon Point. I'm living in my R.V. untill my hips get sorted out. I'm hooking up my SSB Ham radio to try to stay in touch with the cruisers net. I just need to keep my hands in it

Welcome to the site. My hips are fine but my left shoulder's giving me fits. It's tough getting old - but not so tough that I'm giving up sailing.
