I know of a cheap dock in Tarpon Springs and another in Clearwater. You could also move to Marathon in the keys and live on a mooring down here for $300 a month, or at anchor and a dinghy dock pass for $125 month or at anchor for free while parking the dinghy along the roadside.

300$ is WAY OUT OF MY BUDGET,for the keys and that area it sounds like a reasonable price. i do not have any budget for this however. Any nice slip for far less than that, is what is needed. my husband was paying that (now i am) for my poor darling to be OUT OF THE WATER.The only reason that we stayed with this marina is because when we bought the boat, the slip was paid for an additional three months but i would have to say that the marina's sailing community to me seems near to non existent, only the managers and the guys that are completely remodeling were the only ones that were AlWays presant for a nod and a smile.


Clearwater you say, not only does my brother live near there that is truly a beautiful area. pm me please :}

mk: sounds like the suggestion was that you move onto the boat... meaning your rent becomes $300 a month. However given that you've got a young child I suspect that living on a 26' boat on a mooring is not really the right plan for you

Yes, I was thinking liveaboard, and the slips I was thinking of in Tarpon and Clearwater were liveaboard slips that were more than $300/mo. Sorry for the confusion.
