I liked the "Take it" list. Thanks for that. 1 thing that I take with me almost everywehere is a polycarbonate water bottle (Nalgene) I carry it right on the plane. Go thru security with it empty and fill it from a drinking fountain near the gates. After leading Boy Scouts on hikes all over Texas, you learn to plan for hydration.

I also take it in the water while snorkeling. After a few accidental mouthfuls of salt water, it's nice to be able to get some fresh water. The only problem is that it once attracted a barracuda.

We're in the process of going thru all the last minute discounts that are popping up. Is there any difference between the Mooring, Footloose, Sunsail. Have sailed with Moorings 4 times before, but curious about the others.

Oh and thanks for the "Check Lists", just printed them to take home and compare.

Thanks for any help.

They are all part of the same company now so they share common staff and maintenance. I think the only difference is the age and price of boats and possibly some more attentive service for top of the line Moorings customers.

That's interesting. I'm amazed at the 3 very different price quotes I recieved for a May trip. Do you know they would match prices by chance? I know I'll have to ask, but has anyone tried yet?

Thanks
Eleanor

Eleanor,
Getting three very different price quotes is exactly what I'd expect. Think of it this way. You have a parent company that owns Nordstrom's, J C Penny and WalMart. You go shop for a silk scarf and find they are $250, $95 and $45 respectively. Make sense?

Moorings is considered the top tier company with the newest nicest boats. Sunsail is a step down now with Footloose bringing up the bargain basement of older boats.
