Re: new adenture

Hello and welcome to the forum. We get these questions every week or so and it may be to your advantage to do a little digging in the "search" section. Just type in something like "which boat" and see what pops up. You can always go through the posts in the general section, it will not be long before you come upon a similar post.

If you get a few seemingly negative responses to your post on here, please bear in mind that it is a common type question and a little reading could answer most of your immediate questions and allow you to determine some more specific guidelines that the members could then address for you.

Greetings, West!

Searches on here will help you find what you need. There are a few on here that are chilling down the southern coast of Mexico as we speak. Also check out blogs of those who have gone before you.

Here are a few....always go by Ceal Potts, Bumfuzzle is excellent, project blue sphere, 3-knots, I believe there are a few on here that have their own, and may chime in.

As for boats.....many many choices. Keep us posted on your journey. Oh, also check out Teresa and Ben at One Simple Question.
