We're finally bringing Beach Bum home this week starting Monday.

Think we're going to take 3 days to make the trip.

Can someone give us a couple of marinas to stop at for the two nights?

Prefer floating docks.

We can make the trip in one day but want to take our time and enjoy ourselves.

Trawlering in an express bridge...

Since you won't be through Ft. Pierce weekend, you will miss the Saturday Farmers Market and Jazz market. Worth a stop There is good jazz Tuesday nights a couple of blocks from the City Marina.

Vero Beach Municipal Marina is a great stop. No floating docks, but one of our favorites. About 45 miles from Stuart.

Melbourne Harbor is not bad. Fixed docks. Short walk to town.

BB-enjoy the new boat and the trip. Ormond is where I spent many summers with my grandparents a long time ago! Spent many days fishing with my Grandfather off the Flagler Beach Pier.

We live in Ormond and frequent Flagler Beach regularly.

Or just use the Active Captain website which is far better in my estimation except for the occasional historical note along the way....

I would be ok with it. Without abbreviation it would require smaller font less easily read.

I prefer the full spelling, looks to be enough room, wouldn't look bad....IMHO.

Plus I like the word beach, it's pleasing to my ear

BB-looks much better to me spelt out. I assume they are done in vinyl rather than painted?

How is the break-in coming along?
