We're glad that worked out for you. Your yacht is the perfect size for Sarasota Bay and environs. There is a very nice anchorage on the Gulf Side of the Bridge, on the north Shore (N27 20.011 W82 35.226) that has some skinny water on the way in but 7'-9' or so in the anchorage. On the south side of Ringling Causeway there's also a nice anchorage between Otter Key and Lido Key (N27 18.759 W82 34.125) that is also perfect for your yacht. Tow a kayak
along and you can paddle up to St. Armands for Ice Cream at Killians (Sp?)
Candy Store that is definately worth the effort.
