Bowedtoothdoc Congratulations on the engagement,
Just came across your post.
I am in the grater Atlanta area as well and will be heading down to Key Largo later this week. I am signed up for some ASA Certifications with Reef Runner Sailing. I have my boat on Lake Lanier. I'll be curious to see what you find as I will hoping to go back down in the Spring.

sailingdog Congrats... marrying the right person is key... BTW, I was poking a little fun at your fat-fingering of the word "fiancée", but it think you missed it....

Last Feb under full sail down Sir Francis Drake Channel - she said yes and I slipped a ring on her finger.

We came home, closed the deal on our '82 H30 and raced her, sailed her, cruised her, fished her - did all we could do all year on Lake Allatoona. Named her 'Bout Time.

Cindy loves the beach and likes sailing, I like the beach and love sailing - last I checked, I can get her to most good beaches by boat......

We'll probably tie the knot back on Sandy Spit sometime in the next year - most beautiful isle beach we've ever found.

I love our story, thanks for asking!

Florida Bareboat Recommendations

Hey guys (non-gender specific term, more of a general greeting, ladies please also reply as my crew is also my finance') -

I've got a few days to burn second week of Feb and would like to bareboat 3 to 5 days in south Florida - been brutal here in Atlanta....

Any specific recommendations for which company, a good itinerary, areas to avoid, areas to focus on, anchorages, marinas, etc (basically, can you plan a trip for us....)

Qualification's not an issue - We're comfortable as a crew of 2 on anything up to about 45' with a minimum of say 32' for a short trip.

We're generally familiar with FL waters and the geographical layout of the Keys, Miami, Naples areas - but have never sailed those areas or waters. We prefer the Atlantic side to the Gulf, but could be persuaded otherwise.

Would appreciate any and all specifics! Thanks!

Cheers
