Re: Hi new girl who loves working & playing on boats!

Hey Sailnet Friends

I decided last minute to head down to the Keys on Wednesday and I am looking for some of the salvage stores you have all been talking about for sails and parts...

Can anyone tell me where some of these shpps are.... I love exploring shops like this while am on my travels. I Want to get a feel for the area again...

So excited!!!

I don't know of a good one in the keys. Sailorman, in Ft. Lauderdale, is a good one.(350 SE 24th Street).
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316




I used to go in there every couple of weeks when I lived down there. I got some great deals, but you have to go a lot as the inventory is constantly changing.

If you haven't made your plans yet, a good way to go to the Keys is to fly into Ft. Lauderdale (not Miami unless you get a great rate), rent a car, and drive down. It's a slow haul down A1A, but worth it.

For more fun, take Old Card Sound Road either going down or coming back( but fill up with gas first).

Much better than flying over all of the Keys.

You're an old hand then. I didn't know about the one in Key Largo. Probably a good thing because I spent three weeks anchored off Key Largo in 2010 and it would have probably broken me.

I think I drove by that one over Christmas break. Would be nice to be down there. We rented a place in Key Colony in Marathon.
