You can anchor/moor for free off the bay side of Key Largo just west of the tallest radio tower. IF I remember correctly it's Buttonwood Sound...
It is shallow...

Docking fees as previously mentioned are very expensive at 3-4$ per foot of boat length per day or about $2000.00 per month.
For an RV in the Keys its not much different ... about $90.00 to $110/night, not sure what the long term lease rates are.

Boats are much more complicated than cars and many fine car mechanics are lost when it comes to boats.

Sorry to burst your bubble but many people dream of this type of thing without being aware of the expense or problems.
i have found a spot on stock island for 800.00 on the dock also for the rv 2000.00 a month at a very nive place.

If the keys are definitely the place you might also consider Key Largo. If just coastal then consider further north on the FL coast where you would have a much wider range of opportunities.

Some sailboats are more like tugboats and can muscle through a Catergory II 'cane.

Do not take sailboats lightly...
is there a sailboat that has enough room to make us all happy? i like the idea of a sailboat but my wife likes the idea of a trawler, is there a middle?

gostanggo,

Use the Google search in the "Search" pull-down menu up top on the page, and search on "motorsailer", then on "pilothouse", and trawl the threads that come up. These types of sailboats are kind of halfway between traditional sailboats and trawlers.
