Any SE Florida Marinas Open?

Hi guys,

Am flying into Lauderdale tomorrow for my second attempt at a crossing.

Ya see . . .

Last week, "the golden-haired-goddess" and I pulled the boat from Austin to Florida. We rented a 17 ft uhaul for the job. What a "pizza cake" it was! Cost me 577 bucks and the trailer easily followed behind us with no problems.

Well . . .

After hearing of Wilma''s fast approach, we stored the boat and trailer
in a public storage yard (26 bucks for the first month''s rent) and
returned to the sunny skies of Austin. We watched, worried and waited.

''Course, MS Wilma, made a beeline to my storage location with winds
100+. The storage folks said our F-27 made it through ok, but the trailer had moved a couple feet from where we left it. (probably due to the the tongue wheel rollin a bit).

Anyhow . . .

We''ll check it out tomorrow and see if there''s any last minute repairs

We usually launch it in Homestead and ride the stream north. Homestead is still closed so we may launch further north. (maybe
dinner key).

Any of you Florida f-folks have a better launch suggestion not to far
from the "government cut"?

After suffering through a week of worry (my golden-haired-goddess loves the boat almost as much as I do), I''d like to treat her to one of them fancy marinas close to the government cut. Most are closed or not answering their phone.

Any of you florida folks got a recomendation?

This trip, we''are bringing 2 49 cc scooters along with our dink and lots of solar stuff.

Am so excited - I can hardly stand it!

This season, we''ll keep the boat in the caribbean atleast 6 months.
After recuperating in Bimini for a month, we''ll head up to the Abacos
and then down to the exumas.

Maybe see some of ya down there.

Best to ya''s,

Rob and Sharon in Austin (but not for long)

rob... by launch you mean a boat ramp?

when we were anchored in miami for the boatshow last february there was a ramp on watson island downtown.. its just over the rickenbacker bridge.
Lauch there, the venetian isles are the immedate north islands.. basically what we did was go back out and under the rickebacker bridge.. and the south side of goverment cut island and out to the atlantic..
If you need a travlift try merrel stevens in the /Grove.
