Really? They have a $300 per month min rate. I'm paying $182 per month at Green Cove Springs.

Re: Marinas in north FL east coast

Thanks guys, really appreciate the input. I'm really looking to land then vacate within 2-4 days. I'll check all these suggestions out.

Green Cove Springs is a good place for the OP as long as you get your stuff done, launch your boat, and get the hell out of there as that's where boats go to die.
You never have anything nice to say about anything to anyone. Why don't you just do everyone a favor and go back to whatever hole you came from. Instead of constantly berating everyone with your poor attitude, try saying something nice for once about something you hate. It may change your outlook.

Titusville and GCS are boring. Why start a cruise in a boring place.

Re: Marinas in north FL east coast

GCS is cheap but for your purposes it's not very good. No mast crane, no slips to work on boat after it's in the water.

I was at Tiger Point (Fernandina Beach) for quite a few years and they are quite good. Full service plus DIY if you prefer. You will not be storing long so storage charges is not a factor and that is the major difference in yards.

If you want to start further south Titusville or St. Augustine would be fine. Call the yards and ask whether they can step your mast and whether you can work on the boat in the yard. Most yards have slips that you can use for a few days to get things shipshape.

Another place you might try is Seven Seas in Daytona. Don't know if you can get a tractor trailer in their yard but it's worth a try.

I was in there a long time ago and they were top heavy with management ( big yard) and the DIY yard was terrible re water and power. I have a friend who is there now and has been going there for the past few years and he says it's much better now. He's not DIY.
