Newbie Aboard

Hi everybody,

Just wanted to drop a line and quickly introduce myself.

I am originally from Brazil, but lived in CA for four years, then in NY for one and am now moving back to Miami (where I previously had lived for a couple of months).

I grew up around boats and sailed up and down the coast of Brazil, around the Mediterranean, Caribbean and across the Atlantic a couple of times. For the last six years I have been pretty much on land... and now, I am really trying to change that!

I'm looking into buying a smallish 30-34ft monohull, to 'liveaboard' in Miami Beach, FL. I'm sure I'll be coming to this forum to exchange plenty of information, tips, ideas, etc. I look forward to that exchange!

Thank you!
