Thanks for nice welcome. We have one crew member full time and hire short term crew as the situation calls for.

We have taken het to the "Med" three times and go to the Caribbean and the Bahamas often.

Welcome aboard! We bought our boat in Ft Lauderdale 3 years ago & have been cruising the Keys & Bahamas during our Canadian winters. We will keep an eye out for you.

Thanks to you all for the warm welcome. We are about to start a new search for a larger yacht. Donna said something like "bigger is better" I hope she was talking about a yacht and I'm not being traded in. lol

But before we do we both agree a short vacation cruise to the Bahamas is in order.

Welcome Aboard!
What is the draft of the Donna Marie? The water can be pretty skinny here in Florida.

The Donna Marie new drafted 8ft of water how ever in 2010 when she was in dry dock to be updates we installed a tunnel drive system, she drafts six feet. We also have a 17ft Novurania with a 140 Suzuki and two jet skis we can lift off the sky deck for shallow water and fun.

You can make 6 feet work in Florida, especially with the shallow draft toys on deck!
What yard did the work? Changing from a conventional to tunnel drive was a big job.

Well we are heading out today, leaving Clearwater Florida, around the Keys to spend a couple of weeks in the Bahamas then back to Ft Lauderdale to view a couple of yachts that we may trade up too.

The best of TF is to meet your local, fellow boaters. No doubt your boat will accommodate all those local to you. (Boat is in berth: Matt, in the striped shirt, is merely holding the wheel.)
