of thumb for FL, the farther south you go the more expensive it is for dock
space, marine repairs
, etc. Also, in the urban areas like Jacksonville
or, Tampa it will be more expensive than nearby rural areas. Then there's a few high dollar towns here and there that are max expensive and some very unfriendly to visiting boaters, especially worthless bums that want to anchor
out and clutter there views and waterways.
At the same time, these are the same areas that would offer the most potential work
and highest pay.
Otherwise, just about anywhere on the east coast
and slips to rent. Lots of action at Green Cove Springs on the St Johns river and you can rent mooring
cheaply. Ft Lauderdale if you look you can find a reasonable slip and there's lots of work there. Farther south look at Boot Key Harbor.
