I have been watching this forum for a while.
You are a nice group.
In a few weeks (May 23rd) I will be leaving on my first "long distance" cruise
on a sailboat that I just purchased: (1989 34' Sabre)
Sailing from Boca Raton to Pensacola
Plan to head
south around thru Marathon across and up the coast.
If anyone has made this journey any insight would be appreciated.
