smbragg is on a distinguished road

Moved to same area two years ago. Took first year just looking at boats. Wandering Star is right--look at a lot. A lot for sale, but many need work. Defining characteristic down here is SHALLOW. Winter tides and shallow anchorages combine to limit sailing on deep draft boats. Buddy has a 1980 Pearson 35 he has sailed to Bahamas, Dry Tortugas et. Fine boat for cruising and only draws 3'9". But look at others. Older Hunter 34's with shoal drafts are popular.
