However, Florida is expensive and marinas are filled, if you go either north to North Carolina or west to Texas, you'll find more and more reasonable prices and more spaces to park a boat. Cruising USA waters is fun too
I'll check that area and the web site, thanks

I'm quite sure it's a lot of fun, but really, we want to escape from the winter, and nc sounds a bit chilly to us...may be Texas a little warmer? ...thing is, last year we were at Bahamas on a friend's boat, and it was mainly sweater weather....of course it was great, but we wouldn't go cooler than that....
