Anchoring/mooring in Florida?

Hi all, As I'm loosing my mind up here in the midwest with a drydocked boat, I'm thinking of picking up a 20 - 25'er down in Southern Florida for some winter sailing. Does anyone know of any good places I could anchor or moor the boat cheaply? I'd love to be able to hit the Bahamas or Dry Tortugas every so often!

Happy Holidays,Where in Fl are you wanting to go? The Keys are the best place if you plan to cruise in the Caribean.There are a lot of boats in that size for sail.Still lots of places that allow liveaboards,and you can't beat the weather.

trecksail -- not sure what you are looking for but finding a liveaboard from ft lauderdale through miami is almost impossible - there are a couple of places to moor a boat and liveboard but very difficult and expensive - your best bet may be to find someone who has a slip and selling the boat and see if you can get the slip with the boat - i know o one person who is selling a 32' (i believe) that is at a slip in dinner key marina and she is not getting a new boat -- it is just getting impossible to find a slip of any kind in south fla if you want to liveaboard - but if you work hard enough something may come open
good luck
