Hailing from Florida
Just bough (I hope surveyor agrees) my first sailboat, a 105 M Gemini. I will be sailing out of Coconut Grove Sailing Club in Miami and hope to see some of you come down and enjoy our 365 nice weather.
Plan to spent a few months in the Abacos and the, sometimes next year, go down to Belize and Guatemala.

Do not try to eat a hamburger with one giant bite~ some wonderful ideas, yet very comprehensive & long trips, especially Central America

Good luck with the boat & give us more details on what it has on board regarding navigation~ all that good stuff take care

Re: Hailing from Florida
The trip to Central America will be in late 2013. The boat is a cat 34' long, 14 beam. All electronics including radar. Will get satellite radio for the trip. Installing solar and wind early next year. Will spend probably 4-5 months in the Bahamas, mostly the Abacos in March-April 13. Thanks for the response.
