Re: Recommendation for Marina in Ft Myers Area

Before we retired to cape coral, we left our boat for 3 months at Paradise Marina across the river from ft myers yacht basin. A small marina with a live aboard community and great rates.

Re: So what's the logic to the ICW bridges between Miami & Fort Lauderdale?

Not only the bridges, some folks with many more ponies under their hood think its a place to drag race making as big a wave as possible. When possible we went outside but weather often dictated the...

If you're seriously considering Dinner key, go for the coconut grove sailing club. The sailing club is well protected and the other is very exposed to anything but west winds - talk about bounce!

Re: Affordable Moorings Florida?

Have you considered titusville, fl? Nice small town place with a helpful marina staff. Not as nice as cocoa (when did moorings go in?), but a reasonable price.

Re: St Lucie River Pollution Problems

We are seeing the same mess on the west coast from the Caloosahatchee. The tides are higher and on our canal, the water is so dark you can no longer see the bottom.

Re: moorings in coconut grove

Re: Gemini Centerboards. Need help

I've changed the boards on our 3200 and if you search the archives, you'll find lots of information.

Re: Vero beach to coconut grove

There's a primary channel that as I remember (we were there in April and on a cat) is deep all the way in. The staff at CGSC are great and be sure to check out Jaguars restaurant.

Re: Bahamas Cruising Areas - Recommendations Please

Yes, Nassau has water at the marinas, but before you fill your tanks, taste it! We were there last Feb. and the water was not RO, to say it tasted bad would be a huge understatement.
