Key Largo to Marathon

Hello,

My Catalina 27 is in Key Largo (Ocean side) and I am looking for a mentor/trainer for the trip to Marathon City Marina for mooring. My understanding is that it is Hawks channel the entire way down and would be a 2-3 day leisurely sail depending on weather.

My entire experience is an ASA 103 cert 3 years ago in Dallas and a 1 hr sail last Saturday

The boat has no nav electronics, but I am planning on having a hand held.

Let me know if interested, desired pay, etc.

Thanks!
Eric

Re: Key Largo to Marathon

Eric: you didn't give many details in your post, so I don't know where your boat is in Key Largo, but this is basically a day sail, for instance, Port Largo to Boot Key (I assume this is what you are referring to as Marathon City Marina?) is about 50nm. I would be happy to help you but the travel for me would be longer than the trip! Also, Boot Key this time of year will be busy, do you have time to anchor until you can get a mooring, are you capable of moving from the anchor to the mooring by yourself, etc?

Best, Pete

Re: Key Largo to Marathon

I found someone locally to sail with me so I should be all set. Thanks for the questions Pete. I verified that moorings are availble now, so I shouldn't need to anchor out. If needed my anchor, rode and chain are all set up though.
