Leaving boat for few months Florida area

On my retirement cruise with no timeline or destination and currently in Key West.

Anyone have suggestions on places to leave the boat (preferably on the hard) in (preferably) southern Florida for a while while I go home to visit?

Check Coconut Grove Sailing Club they have good safe moorings just south of Miami.

There is a boatyard in Marathon (I can't remember the name, but it's on the left, just before you enter Boot Harbor), that stores boats on the hard (or it used to).

If you are storing a boat during hurricane season make sure the yard uses tie downs.
