Good place to store boat in S. Florida

Does anyone know of a good place to store a boat in southern Florida from April to Nov. Hopefully Atlantic side. Good price in or out of water.

Glades Boat Storage is owned and operated by boaters, do it yourself boat storage, no tides, fresh water

It's far from town so you will need a car.

Re: Good place to store boat in S. Florida

indiantown is pretty popular among the snowbird cruising community. must be 100 boats stored there. a bit out of the way but the price is right.

Do you have to take the mast down to get there? 77foot air draft.

The storage yard at Canaveral was pretty reasonable. Cant work on your boat though. is that Harbortown? cant remember.

If you find a protected marina to haul your boat out I would wait till the end of September (mid October would be even better) before I launched it. Unless you want to take evasive actions for every hurricane that's predicted to hit Florida.

Re: Good place to store boat in S. Florida

You can (barely) get 55' to glades from Ft Myers. the clearances on the charts are wrong for the bridges. There use to be chunks missing on the underside of the first bridge, but they they replaced the concrete beams with 6" lower! steel beams so there is that much less clearance now!

What to do for storing the boat for the hot humid summer? What about moisture, mildew and the like?

Re: Good place to store boat in S. Florida

I did once in Ft Pierce. Took a couple weeks back in the water for one door to shut properly. I only had a couple screened ports and louvered/screen companionway doors for ventilation. It survived. I think it was too damn hot for mildew! I left the boat in June and it was too hot aboard with everything open on the hard to do anything for more than an hour. If the boat's used to Florida, I dont know that it will be worse off (as far as dampness) on the hard as on the water. Needs ventilation most.
