Newbie - from Miami

My name is Brad and I live in miami fl
Im not really a newbie, I have lurked for a long time but probaly will post more often now. Things have changed in that I finally bought a boat. I picked up a pretty little 30ft usyacht "Obsession" that was well equipped and in my price range, little bit of sweat and blood and will look like new.
I have been sailing on and off for 12 years, used to sail with my uncle, more recently lots of weekends renting hobie cats. This is the biggest boat I have sailed but looking forward to sailing every where I can
I would never have done it if It had not been for all the info I was able to gather from this site, So thanks for the info and looking forward to any more I can get.
