I wouldn't leave the boat that far south during hurricane season. First, you're far more likely to get hit. Second, you're going to be paying through the nose for insurance, since you're in the hurricane box. Move it up to the Carolinas or Virginia instead.

Good luck with the inspection, sea trial and survey. What kind of boat are you looking at?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
