Is your schooner new / re-fit ?
Not so Ironic that some level of effort & shakedown trials may be needed to commission her.
We've (wife & I) been to some great diving spots along Hawk Channel / lower keys -Bahia Honda & south. Do you have an itinerary for Jan/Feb/Mar 2011 ? That is real fun (on a sunny day) to (carefully) drop the hook close to a reef - many spots are protected some have designated mooring areas. Having a familiar safe-harbor is comfy for those few days when those "Alberta Clippers" swoop down into the keys ! Daysailing is best for working out small bugs.
BTW - Please don't feed the sharks , they really seem big without that aquarium wall between you & their habitat ! Pray they glide by as you assume a not-so-chummy sorta non-chalant "local" look in your face mask!
