Re: Florida Marina (Hurricane Season)

My intent is to keep the boat in the water, but insurance is going to dictate a well protected harbor. I would also like the ability to have a travel lift to haul boat for maintenance

Re: Florida Marina (Hurricane Season)

Make sure you get hurricane insurance early as there are only so many slots available. My insurance company - Markel - only had 1/2 dozen slots left available in all of Florida by spring of last year.

Truth. I moved to Pass Christian, MS (from Miami) a year and a half before Katrina hit. I lost everything.

The storm of the century didn't find me, I found it.

BTW - I second St. Augustine. It does get hit by Hurricanes but its the least commonly hit of all areas in Florida.

The cool thing with my insurance company (not sure if its true with all hurricane insurance in florida) is that even though the insurance only technically covers you in your "zone", you only need to be there for 50.1% of the hurricane season, so if we are in our zone from June 1st till September 2nd, we can go anywhere in Florida from 9/2 till 11/31 and be covered.

You might try Maximo marina in st pete. They have some new docks opening soon that could accommodate cats, don't know about the travel lift.

Re: Florida Marina (Hurricane Season)

We were hauled out at St. Augustine Marine Center for about a little over 3 months last year. Its like catamaran city. Lots and lots of very large cats there. It used to be where the built the shrimper fleet. Most people do not know this but a large percentage of the Florida east coast and gulf coast shrimper fleet was built there. The STA cruisers net has a local historian that often participates and he came to share this story with us last fall.
