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.

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).

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.

Much better than flying over all of the Keys.

I am with you ... I can wait for a reason to leave.... I think in reality it will be a while though. I really don't know anyone down south yet and none of my friends have actually left for warmer waters. Glad you got out!

I will have to check Bayshore Marine out... I don't personally know it I have only been on Lake Erie to Short seasons.

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

RB I can remember a visit to Bayshore marine. I was a kid amazed that they could put a boat in a rack with a fork truck and stack them up. Erie is a place I miss but not the winter. The economy fell apart And I left. It is nice to visit. The lakes are clean. The best summer a body could ask for. Most of us could not afford to cruise all year so it works out. I hope they can keep the Asian Crap out but that fish is on a mission.
Good day, Lou
