Instead of a dinghy maybe a kayak to throw on top of your jeep?

That might be an option actually...and potentially a good one.

I'd say that's it. Perfect commuter for one would be a kayak with a spot to stash some groceries in the hull. No need to worry about dinghies at all. Just leave the dinghy at the boat.

Good point ssullivan. Could probably do just about anything with it. I be able to find anchorage reasonably close to shore AND I could fish off it.

I like the ones the Canadians banned. They would fit easily in the trunk of the car or in a back pack. If I wanted to be safe, I would stay home

I have one of those cheapo Coleman 2-person inflatable kayaks, and the pump that plugs into the car outlet. $100 for the Kayak, $20 for the pump. Inflates/deflates (mostly) in about a minute or two. Easily fits in the trunk (yes, I never go anywhere without a boat ). You could probably get away with just taking out 1/3 of the air if you're stuffing it into a jeep.

I was think some schweet kyack that was made of popsicle sticks, elmers glu, and condoms or something. THAT I could see Canada banning.

Look into a Mooring at the old Seaplane basin where Davis Island Yacht Club is located. N27 54 30.94 W082 27 02.30. It's a nice area and reasonably close to Tampa. Better, look into joining DIYC. It's worth the money (see Davis Island Yacht Club ).

Now that's what I'm talking about. Davis Island would be PERFECT locationwise since I'm working in downtown Tampa. I could practically walk to work. I will definitely look into them and the location. Thanks!

I spoke to a nice lady at the DIYC and she informed me that there is a looooong waiting list for a slip once a member. She also told me that the basin does not allow mooring. It is just not enforced. She said some just "show up" and there they are. She does not know (or would not say) much else.

I know a doctor that sails a lot and there is (was) a harbor pilot that has (maybe sold by now) a MaineCat 30 on a mooring there. I bet the harbor pilot knows a bunch.

I would wander over there and talk to the dock master. He has been "around the block".
