Hoping for decent weather in late March to do some bottom painting and vinyl stripes so I can get back in the water during the first week in April.

Dave,
The Regal forum is slow as well. Most people are using social media as a way of communicating.
The only people I see posting on forums are those not active on other social media platforms.

Some of the guys on my canal stay in, shrinkwrap and winterize in the water, then come out for a short haul (a few days) in late spring to paint the bottom, change zincs, wax sides, etc..
Id be more willing to give it a try if I lived on the water and my boat was at my house, but kind of nervous about doing it at my dock which is 7 1/2 miles from home.
Id really be worried while away on vacation during the winter.
One of these winters Ill man up.......

I haul the boat every couple of years depending on growth. I scuba dive, so I can change out the zincs and keep an eye on things in the water.

Hey, I just realized I never answered you. The trip took 3 weeks, because I had to stay at the Golden Nugget marina in AC, for 5 nights waiting for the weather to improve. Lost a couple other days due to weather. But all, in all, it was a great trip. Saw a ton a dolphin fron NC to Florida, a couple of manatees in Florida, experienced 6+ seas in the Chesepeake, and a couple rough ocean days, but it was a great adventure. Aside from a dirty fuel filter from the rough ride in the Chesepeake, the boat handled everything like a champ.

Loving life down here. We were out on boat all day today, went swimming in ocean. The clear blue water still amazes me. We anchor in Boca Lake a lot, and on an incoming tide, it is a turquoise paradise. We are planning our first trip to the Bahmas - cant wait!

Glad it all went well. Youre lucky to get out of here while the getting is good. Were trapped until both kids get out of college and decide where they want to settle. Hopefully its someplace nice with lower taxes than here.
My friend ran his 480 south to the West Palm area a few weeks ago and had a good trip too. Hes keeping it at a friends house until he brings it back in April or May.
Im hoping the dates work out so that I can make at least part of the trip back with him.

It really is a great trip. Do it!

A week before we moved off LI, my oldest daughter (26) transfered with her company to Raleigh, NC. She said they had her when she saw the beer bar in the office :). She really loves it there. She can actually afford to live in a nice area and plans to buy a townhouse or home soon. On LI, she would be struggling. I am heading there next week for a few days. I guess one way or another, our kids will find their way.

If you head this way, let me know. The boating here is really amazing. When the tide comes in and fills Lake Boca and the intracoastal with clean blue ocean water, it is really beautiful. I dont think I will ever get tired of the color of the water down here. But, we do plan on heading north in the next couple years to once again enjoy LI boating with our friends.

Stay warm!

Jeff

I don't have my big boat here. I joined a club and I go out on pontoon boats.
Gets me out there, so no complaints.
Really don't want my big boat here.
I want to keep that in NY as a snowbird.
Down here I want a smaller boat but eventually maybe a big one.

Water by me in the lagoon is not clear, but I run to the inlets where it is.
We are far from the inlet, which has pluses when a hurricane comes but minuses for the water color in the lagoon.
But we still see plenty of dolphins and manatees.

We have a frequent manatee visitor on our canal. Unfortunately, no dolphins here. Probably all the NY, Long Islanders scared them away. But Biscaynne bay has tons of dolphins. I noticed a lot of boats where are live are day boats. But I like having my floating house with me when hanging out. Need my AC and nap on couch after a dive or long swim. Hoping to use this as my summer home up north or get a semi-displacment trawler, but we love this boat. And, It fits under all the bridges on the way to Boca Inlet.

Your pretty Regal would look very nice in the clear blue water down here and its perfect for a run to the Bahamas - just saying :)

My concern with the regal is I hear if you get to Bahamas and have issues, then its hard to get parts and people who can work on things.
I have IPS and the last thing I would want to do is have to fly a mechanic in from Florida.

Its a great boat but not for Florida. I am looking at these new outboard, small cabin, bowriders. They are day boats, weekend boats, and bahama run boats all in one. Just pricey but I am in no rush. I have my pontoon now and happy with that.

Yes, it is my understanding you are on Bahama time when there. Dont expect to get a mechanic on boat in a day or two. Gotta relax and wait, no other choice. I agree with your IPS concerns. Glad you are enjoying the pontoon boat. See quite a few down here. One has a water slide.

They are floating couches. But it gets you on water and you can float in about a foot of water!
So for now it checks the box.
But I eventually want a better boat.

How far are you from Port St. Lucie by water? I can take a boat out from there with the club but not never did it.
Can raft up. LOL

I envy guys who do that. Crawling in and out of the shrinkwrap with the boat blocked up in the winter $ucks.
Wish I could muster up the courage to at least stay in the water and plugged in for the winter. This would have been the one to do it.

I don't know staying in up north is worth it....Sunday night the wind was HOWLING. I was worried that I parked my truck under a tree....wouldn't want to know how I would freak if the boat was in the water. We had gusts of 59mph in my town....boat on stands was fine. We did have a sailboat teetering back and forth but the owner came to snug it up.

BUT if in the water you most likely not have to worry about trees falling on it!!

Ive been keeping my boats in the water since 2004, and never had an issue. That being said you really have to have everything set up right and where can make a real difference as well

The short answer is after some years out of boating I dont really have one.

My first diesel boat(2002) had Cummins 450Cs and SS3 had a company named something like Wesco do the head gaskets they were very good
One of their guys named Rob, opened his own shop in Port Washington, both Cummins & Yanmar. Had him do the block heaters and I did the Maintenance.
When I got my Cruisers with CATs he did the Survey & installed the Block heaters and I did all the maintenance. He seems to be out of Biz.
Was very good, not to dependable.

Sometimes id have the yard do the oil changes if I was traveling a bunch.

My new to me boat has Volvos and I have yet to find someone. My yard, Stirling Harbor says they work on them all the time but have yet to check out their work. I'm sure ill have to sell some body parts to cover the costs

Ill try to do some of this years maintenance as fully retired I should have the time But im getting older and rounder so ill see how that works out.

So if you know of a good Volvo guy that will go out east let me know.

I feel your pain, literally. I can't climb down into the engine bay easily anymore and it's tight in there. That's why I have to pay someone to do the work I used to do without a second thought. I spent two hours on the boat yesterday, crawling through the shrinkwrap door, to do some minor work. It was actually about 60 degrees under the shrinkwrap while it was 32 outside!. White really absorbs the sun.

Surprised its that far.
Oh well, hopefully I will have a bigger and faster boat here next year!





I usually cruise at 18 to 19kts (2200 rpms) depending on how much fuel is in the tanks. Most guys with the the 410da, cruise at 20 to 21 kts at 2350 rpms, but I am in no rush and the engines just sound like they could run forever at 2200. Maybe we can pick a good spot and meet in the middle.

Wait till I get a better boat, debating next boat move. The club boats are fine for now, its a floating couch and gets me out there but I want a different boat here. So step 1 is find a slip I like. My place I am on the waitlist so I am thinking about buying a condo that comes with a slip and rent out the condo and use the slip. Looking at a twin outboard dual console with hardtop for here.

The place we are renting in Delray, came with a slip big enough for a 60 boat. My wife and daughter got a very nice 2 floor condo on the water, and I got a slip and a covered parking spot for my car. We are all happy and warm :)

Between the weather and my back I'm just not feeling motivated yet!
Maybe I will look at it next weekend.
