How can I get my mail when cruising?
I am based in the UK and cruise around the west florida coast at the moment.

I will be coming over soon and leaving my permanent berth in bradenton and will lose that mail address. Is there a good mail referral service that I can use?

will my bank accept a mail referral service as my address?

I would be grateful for any help in this direction please.

Also anyone know of good/economical places in south florida to store a boat on the hard?

Ken, I've heard only high praise for the folks at "St. Brendan's Isle" a home-port and forwarding service out of Florida. Since you're already using a Florida address...

"Mail Forwarding Services for Cruisers, RVer's and people who travel. That is our Specialty! We have been providing mail forwarding services since 1988."

I would third the recommendation for St. Brendan's Isle. Many cruisers I know use them and have nothing but good to say about them.

Ask people that want ot writte to you, to put the letter inside an envelope, lick the part with glue, (carefull with paper cuts in tongue) then put a stamp and leave at post office....

Ah, ask them not to forget to write your name on the opposite side of the glue end....
