Marathon & Boot Key Trip

Quote:
"One of the very few negatives we found at Marathon was that there were NO kids. Not a single boat kid anywhere. Now I am sure that changes and I am sure that there were some in the mooring field that we never saw. But compared to other places we have been where there were at least some boat-kids/Live Aboards or cruisers, this place had none"
We were there last winter (late Dec to mid March) and found that there were many boats in the mooring field at Boot Key Harbor that had kids on board. There were many planned activities for the children that were announced on the cruiser's net each morning. We found Boot Key a great place to spend the winter and hope when we return it will be a warmer winter. They had record breaking cold while we were there so we couldn't take advantage of many water activities but still had a great time and met some really great people.

nice post Brian! how much for the children? haha-from the Blues Bros movie. I have a few questions: Where did you depart from,west coast somewhere i assume? Is your fee schedule correct,ie $330 mouring ball, and $7.50 ft marina? I am 33 ft so cheaper at marina? is there anywhere to anchor for cheap? Dinghy dock fees, showers, bathroom, etc. How did you come to pick marathon and boot key? I like islamarada and lorelai bar/rest. I am an RN and was thinking of applying at Fish Hosp in marathon this year and living aboard for awhile befor heading to the islands mon. thanks again for great post.

For information on rates and services at Boot Key Harbor check out their website The City of Marathon FL - Official Website - Marina and Ports
And we agree with sailguy40; they are really great photos.

Brian,
Great photos. Great family. You're Living the Dream!
One day in the not-too-distant future, I think your kids will admire the choices you've made. You've already provided them with a lifetime of fantastic memories...
And no doubt, you're having a ball too!
I'm looking forward to your next years' trip.

Hey Brian,

We are in Annapolis, living on the boat.

A bit colder here than where you are...

We returned from our Bahamas cruise in July and spent 3 months living a land based life in Norfolk. Moved to Annapolis in October and love it up here (except for the bleedin' temperature).

A fine yacht like yours deserves the latest in TV technology...

/Jorgen
