Thanks for the constructive responses.
Green Cove Springs is a hydrological springs according to wiki. Wiki also lists it as a city. There are lots of marinas
there and some have lifts capable of hauling boats with beams larger than 16 feet.
When I asked for sources for Amearon ABC3 I was looking for a specific source, and possibly a phone
number. While it may be available from a business in Green Cove Springs I doubt the springs or the city itself sell it, though I have not checked on that.
I looked at boats in Green Cove Springs before I bought the one I have now and know something about the area. It is a great place to haul and store a boat, but realistically about as far from the Keys as you can get. Not to mention the passage
up the ICW
is almost completely motoring while the passage
up the West Coast
allows for lots of sailing on the outside with a lot more anchorages
that do not suffer from entry/exit problems through narrow cuts subject to unfriendly seaways. So my first choice would be a haul out
on the West Coast
