Need Help - Anyone Near Long Key, FL?

On our way from New Orleans to Destin our Spinnaker ripped. Our friend took it back to Kemah and the repair will be ready Friday. We need an address to send it too. We are in Destin Fla and will leave for Panama City tomorrow. We will probably be stuck because of weather in Panama City until Thursday morning at which time we will sail to Clearwater, Fla. We have family there but we don't want the expense of overnighting it. We would like to continue to the Keys anticipating a crossing to the Bahamas as weather permits. Does anyone live near Long Key or Channel Five marker which is where we will cross? We would like to have the Spinnaker shipped near Long Key so we can get it before we cross. Thanks!


Sea Yawl Later!!

You can get it shipped via any method to any UPS Store . They only charge $5 to receive/hold a parcel. This one in Longboat Key is pretty close to the water:

The UPS Store - LONGBOAT KEY, FL - Home

Have a great trip!

Long Key is a little Northwest of Marathon in the Keys

Thanks for your reply.

We have stuff shipped general delivery to whatever post office is convenient. Check with the PO first by phone, not all POs take general delivery.
