It's Time - New Student Searching for Escape.

Hello. We are landlubbers stuck in Fort Lauderdale. We are in search of a project Capt Ron boat. We want to hop back down to the caribbean. We are looking to meet local live aboards and transients to start to learn the life. We are serious we're done here. We need our Caribe back. A call to sailors in the Las Olas/Fort Lauderdale area. Will work for knowledge. Need a lift somewhere in town? Need to learn more abou anchorages in Puerto Rico and USVI. Post a reply lets get together or sell me your tired boat.

Since you all are new here........WELCOME!! Here's a video that I'll bet a beer you will enjoy. It's about a few young people who did what you're implying you'd like to do. It's well worth the watch. Just click on the link below.

Update: We saved a very sad boat. School is in session aboard s/v Keep It Simple. Let's get together local sailors.
