Hi, Carina. I'm also a newcomer to the board. These people are great. They have helped me think through the process of getting the right boat and educated me along the way. We still haven't found the right one but I'm getting a better idea of what we want. Welcome aboard!
Cheers to All from a new member---Beneteau First 435 TM CB('88) owner -30 yrs sailing with fair amount of offshore sailing/racing in northeast but looking to make my first southern sojourn to Bahamas fall '08--given mast height no ICW traverse-any and all off shore routes/stopover suggestions much appreciated- most interested in Exumas and then south-no clock-retired. Thanks much
Thanks for the reply-To be clear my draft is 5'8" board up with a 63' 6" mast off the water (without antennas)-I'm hearing of folks with 5' draft constantly going aground as they have not kept up dredging ??--Cheers--Jerry bruen
