Being a liveaboard
at Dinner Key is not so great - you have to walk anywhere from 1/4 mile to 1/2 mile (or more) to use the facilities depending on where you get a slip. They do not provide dock
carts but security
sure likes passing you while riding in them (and not even acknowledging you). People are less friendly (gov't employees and the largest marina in SE Florida will probably not breed smiling). Hobo spiders in the bathroom/shower areas - getting bit is somewhat common.
Also, the bathrooms and showers are pretty gross considering they are "cleaned" every day and few people shower
The dryers don't dry, no restaurant, no boat shop, nothing very close at all (despite what the advertisements say). Not to mention the construction that is going on is messing with parking - good luck parking close to your Pier.
