Re: Crown vs. US. Battery vs. Trojan 130 amp hour batteries

Just a quick follow-up, we decided on the Trojans. Just couldn't get a great price locally on the US Battery model, so that seemed like the way to go. Should be picking up the SCS225s on Thursday. ...

Boca Grande Key/Channel is a really neat spot, until the wind and tide are in opposition. Incredible lobstering and fishing in the anchorage at Boca Grande Key as well.

Re: Can I make this trip as a novice

Every boat I've bought had problems at purchase. This includes new and used. I'd suggest whatever you do, take at least one day and sail it locally at your departure point. Try the motor for a...
