floridajaxsailor is on a distinguished road
a sail to Key West sounds romantic, key word being sounds
the last time I went to Key West I was stunned at the large Office Depot and other development bursting everywhere along the roads around the island, and further, the beaches seemed dirty unlike many of the promo photos(I think Hemmingway would be completely devastated)

furthermore, coastal sailing is very hard work & requires large amounts of skill/experience to be safe
they are not calling you names, it is just called
REALITY, all the best
