Hurricane season in Florida

As one who has lived here all of his life, and currently living aboard in the Burnt Store Marina just south of Punta Gorda, I can safely tell you not to get too obsessed over hurricanes and tornadoes. They are far more rare than you think. I would worry more if I lived in a mobile home park...

Andrew was a long time ago, and if you look at the history of hurricanes...and where they have hit the state....you''ll see why most of us natives and those with sand in their shoes don''t spend a whole lot of time worrying about some wind and rain.

If you are looking for a marina, where to keep your boat is dependent on type of boat, size of boat, where in the state you are, and what type of storage you want.

As to hurricanes.......think of it this way: Would Disney and all these other people have spent billions putting up the stuff they have if they were worried about it getting destroyed?
