You can get around very easily in the SBM & Miami area. We managed to get any part we needed, and get all over Miami to serve our needs for cruising. SBM has a small bus that does the loop for a quarter, and it crosses the paths of many buses going n.s.e. & w.
I am from the S.F Bay Area, and lived in S.F. for 15 years. That's what I call great public transportation. Unfortunately it's not my idea of a cruising area. My idea is living in a swimsuit, and being able to jump into the water most of the year. That just doesn't happen in S.F.. ........i2f

|imagine2frolic||We used South Beach Miami for a hub for 4 seasons of sailing the Bahamas. We found it easy to use public transportation, and if you are a people watcher. SBM will give you an eyefull. The kicker though is that the Bahamas are only a day sail away most of the year.......i2f|

|CaptainForce||It's too simplistic to attempt to label one coast of Florida more "boater friendly"; however, resort areas do cater to boaters that are willing to pay higher rates as a "vacation cost". Liveaboards with the greatest interest in sailing would require areas with both ocean access and daysailing in protected waters. These places in Florida include Tampa Bay, Biscayne Bay, St. Johns River and more depending on draft. We chose the St. Johns River with access to a large metro area and lower costs and population density compared to Miami. Stanton, a Jacksonville public high school, is the only school to continually rank in the top five in Newsweeks national ratings since 2000. Though not known as a city of liberal progressive politics, like Boston, most all metro areas have enough diversity to find community for those of varied philosophies. At least myself, and three or four others I know, would be your friend! 'take care and joy, aythya crew|
