vasco - the west marine
at halifax harbor marina, and the west marine in south daytona, consolidated into one store about a mile west of the marina a few months ago..
markus - anchoring
rules in florida
changed a few years ago. in general (meaning not in a designated mooring
field) you can anchor just about anywhere and the water nazis can't chase you out. they can inspect your boat for a holding tank
and give you a ticket for not displaying an anchor light at night. just play nice, keep a clean boat, and you should have no problems. as you cruise
down the icw
you will see boats anchored out just about anywhere.
there is an anchorage "area" just south of our sailing club in daytona beach. it is not a designated anchorage, and you won't see an anchor on a chart of the area. it just sort of came to be all by itself. being in front of a water treatment plant there are no dirt dwelling property owners to complain about it, and being used by some of our club members we keep it pretty clean. dozens of snowbirds passing through stop there every fall and spring. some other non-designated anchorages
are not so clean....
as vasco said, there is a boat launch ramp
inside halifax harbor marina and i suppose - although i have no personal knowledge - that you could tie up there for awhile. there is also a yacht club near the marina but they have limited docking
, and no dinghy dock. probably the best place to tie up - and lock up - would be the town dock i described before.
