Florida east coast marina needed
I need to find a reliable Marina where I can leave my boat for November and December. She is a Contest 46, draws 6'2 and mast is 70' so ICW access is out.

Good care of the boat is the main criteria, although nice place to jump off for a 6 month cruise would also be a plus. Further south would also be a mild plus, although I don't really know the tradeoffs.

In addition, any advice on renting a private dock would be most appreciated.

One of the easiest places to get into would be Harbortown at Fort Pierce. You come in the inlet, slight jog to starboard and you're there.

I was in the marina once for a day. Worst Marine is down the street along with a small shopping center, and groceries. The people in the marina were friendly. They have a yard, but no DIY work. As PB typed the access is immediate, and easy........i2f
