Re: noob question

I'm just guessing, but I suspect that you, like most military retirees, has to find a job in order to make ends meet. So, why not go to one of the technical schools that you frequently see advertised...

Re: Advice

Figure on about 50 miles a day average on the ICW, marina slip fees average about $2 a foot. There are a fair number of places to anchor if you draw less than 6 feet, and preferably less than 5 feet....

Re: Best of these Florida cities for sailing

Donna is right, hoist the sails and sail to all of those destinations, and all the places between them. There is so much to see and explore along the east coast I'm amazed that more people never roam...

Re: Part-time Live-aboard SE Florida Mooring?

Re: How poor is the average liveaboard cruiser?

Rapp, unfortunately, there are studies that clearly show that money can buy good health. Individuals in the higher income brackets tend to eat better, often have less stress, and by and large live...
