Re: WooHoo...

Brian, I spent a few afternoons sitting at Burdines in the shade of the overhang, sipping a brewski encased in one of their yellow huggies. I have one on the boat that was given to me by one of the waitresses for singing "The Wonder Of You" for her one afternoon. She loved the song, and my voice, so much that she came to the Tiki Hut at the City Marina every Saturday night after that just to hear me sing. Nice lady - good looking too.

The rates at the City Dock were outrageous, but that time of year, everything in Marathon is overpriced. If I recall, the price-tag to tie up to the canal bulkhead at the City Marina for my 33 Morgan was $757 a month, including taxes, water, internet and electric. Pricing | City of Marathon Official Website

One of the things that enticed me to stay in the canal was I was able to easily offload my music equipment from the boat to the bulkhead. When you're an old codger, loading and unloading 200-pounds of bulky, expensive equipment is a shaky proposition if you're trying to load it onto a finger pier. The bulkhead was easy, and the height of the Morgan's gunwale was just about even with the bulkhead, so it was just a matter of pulling the boat in tightly against the pilings and lifting the gear from the cockpit to the adjacent bulkhead/dock. I wouldn't even consider dinghying the gear from the boat to the dinghy dock. It's not that the dinghy couldn't handle it - but it only takes one idiot to hit you with a wake to destroy $7,500 in electronic music equipment.

Gotta look into Marathon Marina for the next time I make the trip,

Gary

Pfft. Apparently you lack good taste!! That is ALL I drink, with Kalik a backup plan. It's what keeps me young, strong, good looking, etc. Don't believe me? Try it. Drink a 6 pack and go look in the mirror!!!

I would have tied up at the wall too. Marathon Marina is nice, people are friendly, but it does lack the community of the field. Just being honest.

Re: WooHoo...

Rodriquez is my least favorite place because the holding there sucks. I always drag there if the wind gets over 10 knots. Bimini is fun. Just hate paying the $300 fee to go there now.
