Re: Anyone in Marathon?

Heading top to the area in about a month. Can you suggest a place to slip for the week that's reasonable and some places for a day sails? I'm towing my Chrysler 22 down.

Re: Free or low cost GPS navigation software?

Great thread and gave me lots of leads and ideas.

A friend recently gave me a jump drive with Open CPN on it and all the maps of the keys for me to play with. I hope to learn more about it soon.
