Re: Recommendations from Floridian Whaler Owners

I live in Key West, and can certainly say our water beats any of the other choices. The KW that most think of is busy, drunken tourists on Duval St. Theres a whole rest of the island, then the rest of the lower keys. Theres a reason a 900sq ft house is a million bucks.
