Needing to find a LiveAboard Marina

I am presently in Cortez, Florida, just south of Tampa Bay. In the manatee river, there are two places: Twin Dolphins at $12/ft and a liveaboard fee of about $125. A good place with lots of good people. Across the river is Regatta Point Marina. $12.75 /ft, $125 liveaboard fee, they GOUGE you for electric and fuel, and are run by the worst crew of two-faced lunatics you ever saw, but there are some good customers there, if they have survived. I''m in a place for $8.50 /ft and $100 liveaboard with electric included. I love it. If you look around some, you''ll find places. They exist, and gear up to anchor out. That opens up the cruising here and frees you up.
