Default new to jacksonville

I'm moving to Jacksonville, probably won't be there for the Poker Run, but was wondering who lives there so I can introduce myself. Also, any good yards to keep the boat?

Thanks.

Randy

Welcome to town! I'm sure you will hear from some of the other guys in Jax. Which part of town are you going to be living in? That will determine near by Marina's or ramps.

We also have a performance boat club in town with about 30 members. It's a good way to find some boaters to hang out with.

Out towards the beach is Beach Marine. I live in the Mandarin area and am not terribley familiar with the Beach side of town. Maybe some of the other folks from Jax can chime in on other Marinas.

There are a number of ramps in the area. This link will show you where most of the Jax ramps are. http://www.streport.com/files/featur...Boat_Ramps.htm

The boat club meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month in the Mandarin area. PM me when the date get's closer and I can get you more information.

Why does the local boat club seem like a mystery? Got a web site?
I live near Daytona and would love to come up and hang out also

welcome to town Randy. My company moved me here about a year ago. I'm just looking for houses now. Once I'm moved in, down comes my boat. I moved from NJ. Can't believe how much more boating there is down here.
