Re: Storage costs on the hard: FL vs Caribbean

As much as I love Rio Dulce I don't think I would ever keep my own personal boat there... To remote, and too far downwind.
You must have gotten lost as the hwy to the Rio is 2-4 lane freeway. Dry storage here is about 2x that of Green Cove Springs. Costs are going up for a wet slip also, new Gov regs are causing the marinas to up the rates. There is now even a West Marine.
