Re: The ICW - Single Handed - Well, Almost!

I'm hoping to get some video and post it after the Saturday Night Concert Under The Stars at the Marina Tiki Hut.

Stay tuned,

Gary

Re: The ICW - Single Handed - Well, Almost!

Been meaning to ask Gary. Did they get the new shore facilities built? I stayed there in '07, when they first expanded the mooring field and we only had 3 showers and the clothes dryers were so worthless it could take 2 hours to dry one load. Not to mention trying to tie up at the dingy dock.

Ugh. Do I have to be the one to say it?!

Gary, I admire you as a fellow sailor and adventurer, and I aspire to travel as you have, but you're just not sexy.

This thread is total bunk. 17 pages and not a single photo of Mel. For shame!

Mel asked me to swap the photo for one that was more flattering (or she would come to Marathon and beat the Hell out of me!).



Cheers,

Gary

Re: The ICW - Single Handed - Well, Almost!

As for the shoreline upgrades at Marathon City Marina, yes, there are lots of showers for both men and women, the laundry has about 8 wash machines, and 12 dryers, all of which work, a nice rec room with two small theaters with flat-screen TVs, a couple large workshops for those who need to fix things, and at least 40 storage units.

There are loads of floating dinghy docks, limited dock space in the canal, no fuel, and freshwater is available at 5-cents a gallon. Pumpout boats come to you weekly and these guys are great. They do an outstanding job and you rarely hear anything when they arrive at your boat.

Electricity, both 30 and 50-amp service, is available for every dock space, and for those spending the big bucks to be tied to the dock, the water is free. I'm docked on the sea wall, which makes it easier for me to get my music gear on and off the boat. The price is the same on the floating dock.

For more information, take a look at http://ci.marathon.fl.us/government/...ina-and-ports/

Cheers,

Gary

Mel -
You look like you're happy and having a great time.
Such a picture is never "uggg".

Oh stop, you are not! We've all been very envious of Gary to have such a capable, patient, and lovely teacher and fellow skipper.

Good onya, Gary.
