We just looked at a boat that is sitting in the center of florida
. So from a huricane standpoint it is pretty safe. Yes it is the ICW
and it would require that you take you mast
down but the owner of a 45 cat says he is paying 93 dollars a month. There were several other cats at the marina with their masts strapped to the bimini
. If you look at it in terms of saving, pulling your mast
down may not be a bad idea. I can't remember the name of the marina, but it was in the area of LaBelle. If this is an idea that appeals to you I can find out.
