Use good ground tackle bottom is deep mud that doesn't hold well. I prefer outside, they usually have half of basin and a couple hundred yards from beach off limits for fireworks. We started our cruising out of tampa bay. Stayed in basin often.

I guess we will sail from seminole ramp. I dont want to be in too much congestion when anchored. We have always kayaked from coffee pot, but the trip back is a bear. in the dark too.
