We're considering making a move from Michigan down to Jacksonville, FL, Specifically Fruit Cove in St John's County. Anyone know how the sailing is down there, marinas, etc? Any recommended changes to the boat for going from freshwater to saltwater? Thanks!

Sailing in that part of the river is great.  Had a C22 there for several years in the 80s.  Area has built up a lot since then and have no current knowledge of the marinas.  Owners of the marina had a 40' cape dory so plenty of water.

Tim, Green Cove Springs Marina is just across the river from Fruit Cove.It is one of the best Marinas in the area, and allow you to do your own work  on shore.
