Looking to meet live aboard people

Hello
I am heading to Florida this Tuesday and wondering if there is anyone in the area to meet and talk to about live aboard. I am looking for a cat and planning to move on the boat next year. I would love to meet others that are sailing the islands or that have . I need all the info I can get. Thanks in advance . I look forward to speaking to you.
Christina

Re: Looking to meet live aboard people

Hello fellow Hoosier!

Where in FL? It is a big state. We are presently in Stuart and would certainly meet with you. We are a husband, wife & child sailing family.

Give us a shout if you head down this way.

Re: Looking to meet live aboard people

Hey Christina - cats are the greatest for liveaboards . . that's my final goal as well. Wife and I are Hoosiers also but spent some 30 yrs in PA making beer in Latrobe and pop in Baltimore. We're in Homosassa but that area isn't the greatest for liveaboards and the depth ratings are horrible (1 foot down per 1 mile out . .Yikes!) . . doesn't help my 38' Avanti at all.. . . but, if you need a place to stay on your way down to "greener pastures" (hopefully, not "green water"), send a PM and we can talk.

Re: Looking to meet live aboard people

Hi, Christina

Unfortunately, our boat is down for repairs this week (and maybe into next week), but we’d be happy to meet with you Friday morning at the marina and discuss cats ( we’re not liveaboards, though, and won’t have some of the info that you’re seeking).

Let us know what you’d like to do.

Cheers,
Jon
