The reason is that Hurricane Andrew kicked their butts and the claims were so high that the insurance people went broke YA RIGHT!
But that is why it is so high in Dade County.
Try a bit further north Ft Lauderdale or on the west coast Ft Myers and see if they have cheeper rates. I love Dinner Key and Coconut Grove great place to hang out for a while.If you have to go to Ft Lauderdale try and get over around Las Olas on the Isles and you may find a slip but remember it is winter and the snow birds are down.New River is cheeper but it is the boat Yard district but not all of it some is very nice, cruise in your dink and look for signs on docks or just ask people you see along the river. Shirt Tail Charlies has a good menue and is right down town has a pool and is boater frindly as it is a small marina. Good place on the south side of Port Everglades is on the Daina cutoff canal Harbortown I think it is called not sure about the live aboard thing anymore but from the port to Federal Hwy is deep water after that it is all fixed bridges. In a small boat it is a big loop all the way through Ft Lauderdale.if you go to starboard just past the Daina power plant and the old locks.
