Thanks for the welcome.

I am currently landlocked in Central Florida, but will be retiring in November and splitting my time between Western Michigan (9mos) and Sarasota (3mo). I am watching prices, but will not buy until next spring probably. If I see a great deal, I may buy over the winter, while in Sarasota. I would then ship it to Mich in the spring.

Along with looking for a boat, I am also looking for a club or marina, mooring etc. in Mich. Since I will be new to Western Michigan, it would be great to find a place that has a social connection so we can make new friends!

Lots of changes coming up - We are really excited!

An ex-lurker finally joins

I am not sure why it took me so long, but I have been a frequent reader of posts here, but finally joined. I have been sailing for over 40 years, always on someone else's boat. Finally looking to buy a boat late this year. Probably a Catalina 34, Benneteau 345 or such. I am looking for a mooring or rental dockspace near Grand Haven Michigan. Mooring preferred.
