murph, I'm not thinking about the boat or boat registration, but rather that someone is going to say "Yes, well, you left the country, now you need to reapply to reenter, your visa didn't cover multiple entries."

Ah, yeah....they're especially uptight about that in Florida. I'd expect that as long as you stay inside the 12? mile limit? they might consider that you haven't left the country, but hop offshore to the Bahamas, or out into the Gulf...I have no idea what the visa regs are. The only aliens I know are in Area51 and they only answer to the MIB. (G)

Hellosailor! It's a very good point. I have US citizenship, so this should not be a problem. The challenging part is finding a place that fits my needs.

Cheers

And with a chef/cooking backround, you can work ANYWHERE in Florida.

Re: Florida: Stuart or Jupiter

Some hilarious sections above, ah our beloved Florida so filled with duality
and so much wonderful advice

Florida ABSOLUTELY IS one of the cheapest places to buy a house in the US, however, the cost of transportation, lack of public transportation, and as the above Largo poster pointed out, lack of jobs makes it especially odd. There is also the issue of huge crime in many areas, this especially so within this recession. Transient central with almost zero sense of neighbors looking out for neighbors, enough to make some flee after a month. Our area of Miami has many homeless making a pilgrimage to the beach each night to sleep, and this is true with many eastern cities in Florida. I like the comments on Ft Pierce a lot, plus one of the biggest seatrout ever swam there for years before being caught. Check out the FWC records for fish in Florida.

Fort Pierce and West Palm Beach are the best outlets in the area. I would look at a place where I could come and go with the least time in the ICW.

North of Titusville and then through haulover canal into Mosquito Lagoon is a cool place to sail smaller boats...not much quick access to the Atlantic ocean from Titusville..fastest way is down and thru barge canal at canaveral then out the Canaveral cut...probably 15-18 miles before your in the Atlantic even from South Titusville. Titusville is a nice area on the whole..and affordable. Stuart or Jupiter? I'd go to Stuart...been there once 15 years ago and liked it alot...same with port St Lucie, Vero beach Titusville...south of Stuart I would not care to live until you hit Key Largo...

Re: Florida: Stuart or Jupiter

Stuart is a nice town, you can sail on the St. Lucie river if you have a smaller boat, the inlet was just dredged but I still wouldn't use it in the strong onshore winds. Florida gets more expensive as you head south, Jupiter is the boundary line where things start rising quickly. Floriduh came about because of the recount in the election of 2000, it's no worst than any other state and much better than some.

Re: Florida: Stuart or Jupiter

The Working enviroment is "unique" to be sure. The State doesn't really enforce workplace laws. Forced free overtime etc are common.Fraud with trade people is rampant.You have to watch your back every second. It has a feel of a foreign country in many ways especially when dealing with the police(Federallies). The weather is nice and the rest you will develop ways of dealing with it or not.
Many many new residents leave screaming after a year here.

Not sure how good St. Pete and Tampa are now. Used to live in Tampa.
