IIRC, you aren't required to have a license in the state of Florida to sail a boat yet. Get some crew, and sail it there yourself.
While you don't need the insurance to sail her, you will probably require insurance, most boatyards require a minimum of $300,000 in liability insurance, especially if you are going to be doing any work on her yourself. Also, any crew you hire will probably want to know that you have insurance, in case they are injured while working for you.
That said, getting insurance in Florida is pretty tough, thanks to the hurricanes of last year. You should probably give a good insurance broker, like Hartge Insurance, out of Annapolis, a call and see what they can find for you. It beats trying to call a dozen companies yourself. Talk to Christine Hartge...she should be able to at least point you in the right direction.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
