I too would vote Oxnard before LA but in truth there's not a lot of destination type sailing

When I moved there from the PNW I was AMAZED that there are no next to zero restaurants with a dinghy dock etc in MDR Newport or Oxnard are better but in all honesty I'm not sure anywhere N of Oxnard's weather is That much better than Seattle's


And compared to Michigan the PNW weather is actually 'mild'
With a nearly infinite cruising ground

Take a month to go to Arizona or Mexico in the winter and it'd be a pretty good retirement plan I think

I'm fixing up a boat for my retirement and want to live in 90 degree days all day long but I haven't trucked the boat to Texas or San Diego etc because the first place I want to explore is right here

Mountains and the like are AMAZING and it takes a few years for the winter rain to bog you down (me anyway)

So there are caveats but I think PNW has a lot going on and coming from snow and ice I think you'd find it really nice here

No one has mentioned the Texas coast. Anyone have any idea about this area for sailboats? I know there is a lot of fishing and motor boats.

Re: Where should we retire with our boat?

Guitarguy, We live in Melbourne but are trying to relocate to Panama City where we recently bought a house - a handy man special. Panama City folks seem a bit more cordial then the Melbourne crowd and water-front is a lot less expensive there as well. The beaches is what first attracted us, they make you think you are in the Caribbean already.

We had a couple a few weeks back look at our house here in Melbourne who are living Jupiter and are trying to move here for the surfing and to get away from the high taxes in Jupiter.

Miami's great... lots of old memories in that area (South Beach, Key Biscayne, etc.)...

Yes... the water is thin and this is another boat I'm looking at since it has a 2'-9" draft with centerboard up (Southerly 42RST)... most of my cruising will be the South Florida... all though the Gulf, and into the island chains and hope to bring the boat close to the beach as possible... this one will do it.

Hope to meet everyone here on Sailnet in a rendezvous in the Keys or other anchorages in the South Florida area.
