Vero Beach, Fl.

Purchasing a Caliber 38 near Vero Beach, Fl. Survey in a couple days. Yes, hurricane season. Also getting used to a new and big (to me) boat, new systems, plan to singlehand as well. The moorage is paid thru october. will liveaboard, get used to her, and eventually prefer to move down to a slip in Fort Pierce. Nearby open water access, and not as shallow. That would give me the winter to sort things out, before heading north to the Chesapeake for summer. Anyone doing something similar Feel free to contact me. Lets compare notes or conversation over a beer. Thanks.

Congrats on the boat!
Vero is a great place. Especially if the free bus is still running.
We are opposite of you, chillin in the Chesapeake until it gets too cold. Then moving south and crossing to the bahamas. Although we will most likely be headed back this way in may, so we might cross paths at some point

Backed out. Blisters and other things. Not deterred, though!

tough decision to back out. i like the Caliber 38 but they are getting old and some don't age very well. Good luck

So Stu, you don't have Geico insurance, I gather?

Any chance of retraining it to eat iguanas?

Quick update. Still in the Caliber 38 game (5’ draft! Pullman birth! 2 heads?). However, near Fort Meyers. If the survey goes thru ok this time, will be on the gulf side, prob heading towards the keys, with the same plan of exploring the east coast next spring/summer.
