Go look at the boats alone. Leave the young lady to be surprised that her Dad is really making a life for himself that does only include her if she gets of bee hind.

We are all in the same boat. Be happy that not everyone is on your side.
Always bear in mind that I am total newbie .

Hey, Zeehag, the local knowledge about the friends with docks and free docks is great and I use info like this too, but what's the deal with "free places to to anchor for longer than 3 says....."? Anchoring is free in Florida as well as all the states that I cruise between Florida and Maine. There can fees for use of marina facilities and fees for use of moorings. Anchoring is not permitted within designated mooring fields, channels, cable areas, and areas restricted by military and port security, but anchoring in Florida is still free. I know there's been much reported about the State's attempt to prevent people from using derelict vessels as low income housing with the use of laws designating "liveaboard" vessels as not legally anchored; however, sailors have prevailed in maintaining their rights of navigation. We continue to anchor freely and without authorities questioning our anchoring practices all along the east coast of Florida. I would encourage cruisers to continue to practice their rights of anchoring and not caving in to those that attempt to limit our rights. I'm sure Zeehag has good information about anchorages in western Florida, but there are good anchorages within every thirty mile span along the east coast too.

Take care and joy, Aythya crew
