looking for a slip
Here in Cape Coral there are folks advertising to rent their dock space behind their house. the water depth is an average of 5'' around these canals and offers access to the gulf quite readily. Its about 18hrs to Kew west due south and the Okeechobee canal will dump you out accross the state above Ft. lauderdale. Check the Ft Myers News-Press online. There you''ll find the classified ads and can look for dock space. My Catalina 30 will be gone after Jan 6 and you are welcome here, but sooner or later I''m going to get another boat and there isn''t room for 2 sailboats.
You can also check Punta Gorda and Naples. there are canals in Ft Lauderdale/Miami area as well.
