Cool Hey folks - Newbie in Florida

Hey folks, I've been lurking around the forums for awhile and soaking up info and figured it's time to say hello. I live in Florida so it's basically always boating season! Ever since I sold my fishing boat a few years ago I have been wanting another and it's getting close to that time. For me the big debate has been wether to get another power boat for fishing or a sailboat. My fiance on the other hand is set on a sailboat. I have quite a bit of power boating experience but my sailing experience is minimal at best. Anyways I have found this website very informative and most people seem quite helpful. Reading the stories and seeing the pictures has definitely swayed me more towards the sailing side lately. I look forward to learning more and conversing with you all further.

Welcome aboard. Sounds like you need at least two boats, but why stop there?

Haha trust me, that thought crossed my mind! However between my work schedule and other hobbies there just aren't enough days in the month.
