Heading top to the area in about a month. Can you suggest a place to slip for the week that's reasonable and some places for a day sails? I'm towing my Chrysler 22 down.

Re: Anyone in Marathon?

Great, thanks for the info. I'll need an actual dock as I don't have a dingy on my small boat. I'll take a look at the links you gave me.

Have you heard anything good or bad about the Sombrero Marina in Marathon? Their rates look very good, but I also realize you often get what you pay for.

Re: Anyone in Marathon?

We have been to the Sombrero Marina for lunch and drinks a few times. We were down by car a few years ago and were impressed. We will stay there in the near future for an extended visit if we can ever escape where we are now. We liked it very much and were impressed with what we saw and what was nearby for convenience. It is our marina of choice but would also consider the City Marina, where Gary (Travlin Easy) recently stayed. You might check with him as I believe he played music at Sombrero recently and may have a better long term feel for it

Re: Anyone in Marathon?

Leaving Chesapeake for points south in a few weeks. Would like to layup for a while in the Boot Key mooring field and am curious as to when it starts to really fill up for the winter. Have no particular schedule, travel depends on the wind and weather but I would like to arrive in Marathon area in advance of the onslaught.

TIA for the feedback.

First of all, anyone coming down to Marathon or the Keys, look us up. We are still here and probably will be for a while. We enjoy it here. Currently lying in Marathon.

Cap-Coullion:

I would say November... but reality is that you are probably good until January. It has been weird. WHen we first started coming here many years ago, November and Dec would be really tight. THen the market went to the crappers and Nov and Dec were not bad. Now things are starting to fill up again.

You should be fine anytime in Nov though... but again, the economy is better and people have more money now so who knows??

Re: Anyone in Marathon?

Thanks for the info... Sounds like the timing fits into the non-schedule quite well. Raised 3 kids on an old Tripp 45 cruising full time. Good way to grow up. Kids are gone so downsized to an elderly c-25. The Solitaire will be leaving south in a few weeks. Will look y'all up when I get there
