Re: $3000/mo cruising budget
I would pay $500 per month just to avoid having to go to Key West. Been twice. Set a margarita record of some sort at Sloppy Joe's once. Never going back. Marathon sounds nice, will have to put that on my list. I've been to Key Largo (Ocean Reef club). You'll need $500 for dinner.
That was my impression as well, when I lived and boated in Miami. I went a couple of times and despite a few nice tourist attractions, decided that what was going on there, just wasn't exactly my cup of tea. I really don't even think it's that great for boating.
Now, the rest of the Keys, are wonderful, as far as I'm concerned. On land, and on the water.
On the northern Gulf of Mexico.
