Re: Fuel in Miami
I assume you're running south outside to get to the Keys for the Christmas Holidaze. If so, the easiest stop in Miami is at the Miami Beach Marina, on the northeast side of the first channel to the north from Government Cut, just north of Fischer Island. Fuel is available and shopping is reasonably close by. In Miami, fuel costs are about the same everywhere so there's not much to be gained by chasing all over the Bay for it and getting in and out is easy at Government Cut.
For what its worth, you might want to click over to Activecaptain.com and register (it's free) after which you will have access to a very good cruising guide for most of the areas one might be interested in with lots of local information posted by other cruisers.
