Planning/dreaming

I sail on Lake Michigan now. At some point in the future I would like to sail in warmer waters. Is there an affordable way to have my boat dry stored in Florida, and launch just a few times a year? By affordable I mean something like a few thousand yearly including launching a few times for my 27' boat. Would it be worth the trouble to recommission the boat just for a vacation a few times a year?

For a few weeks a year chartering may be a lower cost, but for a few months a year the costs for haul, splash, storage, insurance,... for your own boat may make sense.
