IronWind is on a distinguished road
marinas florida''''s west coast

Fishermans Village is on the Punta Gorda side.
I had a boat there untill last year.
Expect high dock fees. and tourists abound
walking the docks
From there if you stay on the Punta Gorda Side, one has to walk several blocks south to the West Marine by the Laundry on the Junction od Taylor Rd and 41 N
Long walk
Now you can public anchorage across the harbor on the Port Charlotte side by thr Raw Bar.. You must dingy ashore.
Its about a 2? block walk to Port Charlotte
West Marine and Stores abound.
Punta Gorda {city proper} does not allow anchorage for more than 24 hrs. Outside of a Marina.
Punta Gorda City has a marina and fishing pier that rents for $1000 a year. Most of the areas Trawlers are there. SECURITY IS NEXT TO NILL.
Shopping is close along with a PO.
Several Marinas are up the Peace River {off Charlotte Harbor} and fairly cheap..But no store about except ship stores and inflated prices.
If you dont mind the price Fishermans has it all..But you will pay dear.
Gasprilla Marina is great for liveaboards..
Has a fairly decent store and mail pick up and delivery..
Going anywhere from there requires a car...
Palm Island is fairly close to a store, but high rent.
Boca Grande is premo has everything one would need, but high priced.
Best "cheap" way is the 2 public anchorages in Charlotte Harbor on the 41N side of the bridge. But expect to dingy...
