Ex Key Biscayner here, and glad to be in Longboat Key (Sarasota) now. Miami is too much party for us, but outside of the crowds at the sandbars and Diner Key, it's great cruising. My lady and I were hitched on the boat right there in Stiltsville. Welcome to the Forum and congrats on your boat choice to begin your cruising life.
