Ft. Lauderdale’s S.E. 15th Street boat launch ramp is just off the Intracoastal Waterway just north of the 17th Street Bridge (about 2 nm from Port Everglades Inlet) has metered parking. I don't know what maximum time limit they impose.
From the 17 St. Causeway take Cordova Rd. north, and SE 15 St. east. The ramps are on the south side just before the Marina.

thanks gordmay for the location, this is the place where we launched out of in sept 08. trailered our yamaha 210 jet boat down. after searching on the internet we finally found a place. Welcome to Harbour Towne Marina on the Dania Cutoff Canal . $8.00 per day, first come first served. the guy name is Mike.

also hooked up with a flotilla leaving ft lauderdale to bimini july 9-12 2009, anyone else heading over around this time?

17 more days until we head to bimini via ft lauderdale via va beach. boat has been fully serviced, kind of windy here in va beach so didnt have a chance to run her yet. she sounds great on land, new batteries charged and ready, have to get a grill for the boat as well. new line on the fishing poles, scuba tanks filled. cant wait to leave.
happy fathers day all

ust got back to Va Beach last night. Had and excellent trip to Bimini with the flotilla, G-STRING, 3C'S, NACHO BOAT, SEA MONKEY, STILL CURRENT, and LIL MUNCHKIN. Stayed at the Bimini Sands Hotel, 5 stars there. Already made plans for the 2010 flotilla to Nassau, getting a bigger boat for that trip. Richard on the lead boat was excellent.
