Re: What's Up with Living on the Hook in Florida ?

I live on the hook in Boca Ciega Bay, near Bay Pines, along with another 15 or so boats.. no one bothers us here.. there's plenty of places to dingy, get provisions, party, etc... we watch out for one another's vessels, and the anchorage has a good bottom.

I have a 28' Sabre, a 24' floating pontoon dock, and a 20' run-a-bout. Generator, hot water shower, and other amenities... Life is what you make it. The money I don't give others for something temporary, pays for things more permanent for myself...

Life is good...
