Moving to Key West... maybe

Hello all,

I'm considering accepting a job change to Key West. I have a friend here (on the Chesapeake Bay) who let's me dock my C&C 27 for free.

I'm thinking it might make more sense to sell my C&C here and purchase a trailerable boat there because of dock expense. Is it practical to get a permanent mooring ball there? And advice?

Thanks,
Rick

rlaribee,

Occasionally you can find deals on dockage in the classifieds, but usually all are north of KW

Vic—

You might be better off by not hijacking a thread with an off-topic post. If you haven't done so already, try starting your own thread instead. I'd highly recommend you read the POST in my signature to help you get the most out of your time here. It has tips on searching sailnet, writing a good post, etc..

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.

I would sail it I have made the trip in a 28 foot fron Westbrook, CT to barnegste light, NJ to the keys enroute to mississippi only pick your times carefully around the cape and carry a guide with the holes you can duck into in case of trouble and as long as you stay out of the stream you should be ok.

im paying 12 a foot at old island. well worth it.
was on mooring for a while, make sure your 100% leagel if you chose to make your own mooring; you will be hasseld anywhere but mooring field. for 275 you get dinghy dock trash and water they have just now put in bath facilitys for morring field, key is 25 bucks, think it was 100 dep!
its exposed to any N/W wind. major current at bridge, seen 4.5 ft chop in there, wicked bad!

hey not trying to change the subject but i was curious as to what kind of boat you have i also live in old island and rlaribee i agree with keyspc the mooring field can get a little rough not to mention the distance you have to dinghy in to reach the dinghy dock i believe it something like a mile or just a little over that
