New to Forum-So. Florida

Wanted to say hello to everyone on this forum. I have been lurking for a few days and have enjoyed what I see. I only have experience in power boats and have only boated in South Florida, from Ft. Lauderdale to upper Keyes. I have a lot to learn from some of you more experienced Captains. I am thinking about becoming a full time cruiser but convincing the Admiral may be differcult. Looking forward to reading more of the posts from everyone.

Welcome to the furum! I recently joined myself. I moved up from So. Florida a few years ago and have really enjoyed the Chesapeake. Hopefully, very soon, we will be neighbors during the winters.

Good luck on sweet-talking your Admiral. The more active a partner is the more willing to follow the full-time cruiser dream.

Welcome to S. Florida!

We are at Dinner Key Marina in Coconut Grove. While we aren't 'experts' on a lot of stuff, we're eager learners and know the area a bit. We frequently travel to the Bahamas and Keys, so if you have specific questions, drop us a note - we don't bite!

You know what they say, the only stupid question was one that wasn't asked!

Take care, smooth sailing and again, welcome!

Lee and Terry
