First, anchoring for extended periods of time, especially as a liveaboard is being discouraged throughout most of Florida. The marine police and local jurisidictions are getting pretty nasty about it, with arrests and large fines.
If getting into a local marina isn't possible... and from what i understand there were a lot of vacanies in Florida marinas following the hurricanes and the changes in insurance rules... you might look to a local sailing school or yatch club and see if you can work out an arrangement where you can act as a "night watchman" and keep your boat on their premises. An acquaintance of mine and his wife liveaboard their boat in Boston, doing something similar.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
