You would be able to haul in Key Largo at the old Boats and Tires.
We've been using Sisters Creek for 23 years, never had any problems and never seen below 4.5-5 feet. There are a couple of shallow spots that you have to watch for though.
Yep. Takes a little bit of local knowledge. This cat can aground right where the markers are outside of Sombrero Beach. Came to a grinding halt. Me and the kids were there cleaning six months of growth off of the kayaks and heard the shouting!! He got off fine though. I shouldn't have laughed. I have run aground more times than I can count.

Anyways, take a look at my blog if you want a good chuckle on what grows on a Kayak after six months.

Congrats on your boat! Hope it works out. If you make it back over to Marathon, give me a shout if I am still here. We will have a cold one.

Take care,

Brian
