Dudes and dudettes, Marathon has got it going on! About 400 people living here in the harbor on their boats and everyone's smiling. I'm anchored outside with a dozen other boats because I'm too big to get in there, so we just dinghy
in to avail ourselves of the services. Yes, they do charge some money
, but the value is great.
I've been traveling the west coast
and following the anchoring forums
and dealing with the cops in Sanibel and Sarasota
, and I got to tell you that Marathon has figured it all out.
It's not really my scene and I'm not planning on staying longer than a week, so for me it's just a great friendly place to get stocked up and do some work on the boat, but the folks that stay here are happy.
Check it out.
