Her draft is 5 ft. The boat is in Miami-South Beach but we will be on land for 3 days prior to do some touring around the area. As I said we have 10 full days devoted to sailing so I would like to take advantage of that as much as possible. I looked at the map and concur that down to Marathon and back would probably provide some good sailing without having to get too stressed about a schedule. How about information on good marinas in Key Largo, Islamorada and Marathon..is there a refererce page with reviews??
