consentration of boats for sale in Florida

Don,

Whenever I do an internet search for boats, I''m amazed how often I find one for sale in Punta Gorda. If such a purchase were right for me, it would be a matter of moving it from one canal home to another - how convenient.

We still have a lot of decision making to do yet, but right now we''re thinking that any boat we buy will not likely fit under that bridge. Any property we''ve investigated has been seaward of the bridge.

You say Charlotte Harbor is shallow, but from the charts, it''s some of the deepest water inside the barrier islands that you can find - of course, that''s all relative. Once you get down below Captiva and around Pine Island, that''s where you better know your depths!

Thanks for your insight.

Duane
