I'm considering a job in Key West
, but I don't really want to live on the hook there. I've had too many friends come home from work
to find their boats have been broken into, and I don't want to put my cats in danger
. Besides I'm going to have to "dress up" a bit, and it would be a pain to dingy in.
So I'm thinking about finding a spot at a marina, but whenever I ask my Key West
friends about what the marinas
on Stock Island are like, I get a variation of "Abandon hope, all ye who enter here". Drugs, crime, shady-looking people lurking about, the whole nine yards.
So, anyone who actually has first-hand experience here: which is better, the rock or the hard place? Even if anchoring
out is better, what are the marinas
