That helps, but it brings up a few more questions.

Own or rent a home?

Will you be working? So do you need to be near someplace specific?

You say offshore, for day sails, or with a destination? Or a combination?

Thing with Florida ... it ain't cheap. Plus there's those naughty old hurricanes (and the insurance that goes with them).

If you're not familiar with Active Captain you might want to check it out for navigational info for the areas you're interested in. I should note here that the Inlets by Jupiter and Stuart are marginal, at best (and ones I wouldn't use). ( Jupiter Inlet the most dangerous inlet in Palm Beach County area ) You really should go north to Ft Pierce, or south to Lake Worth. Ft Pierce has less commercial shipping than Lake Worth, it's mostly all recreational/fishing craft.

Basically, it all depends on how you'll be using the boat, and if you need to be near a certain area.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
