I see a lot of people here are from St. Pete, Treasure Island, Tampa, Sarasota
How about a roll-call to see who is in the area?
I keep my 1974 Cal
Cruising 35 Starquest
in the Bradenton Beach anchorage (often called the Cortez Yacht Basin even though that is actually across the ICW
My 1982 Island Packet
MKI is currently anchored just north of Tierra Verde, just outside the marina. At least I hope it is still there, the currents are wicked and it's got engine
problems that I need to address tomorrow so I can continue to bring it down to Bradenton Beach where I will keep it on a mooring
and use it as a daysailor / weekender while I continue to fix up the bigger boat for more ambitious cruising.
