A word to the wise:
At Ft Myers Matanzas mooring
field, there is apparently an unpublished "size" limitation. 48 ft. is the published LOA
However, even if you are 48 ft LOA
, the harbormaster may decide you are "too big" to be moored there. A judgement call on his part, without reference to vessel displacement
or type. It just "looks too big".
So, even if you have signed a contract
, and paid for a week, and moored safely, you may be evicted when the cruising harbormaster notices your presence. Your prepaid rent will be refunded for unused days.
This all happened to me today, so is fresh first-hand knowledge. As you may expect, it was an unwelcome surprise.
