Hey Sailingdog, you might want to tell Snookcatcher how to power the frig without a generator. Halifax Harbor Marina in Daytona Beach has openings for liveaboards.

East coast Florida inland 25 miles south of Jacksonville, Green Cove Springs. When I finalize on a boat I'm heading there. An old/current girlfriend told me no problems hooking there free and many stores and such walking distance.

Cheers

Tou can still anchor out anywhere you need to in florida for as long as you need to per florida state statue 327. a few areas are attempting to circumvent that state law w/ local ordinances and such, but little success. Recently the FWc has begun a pilot mooring field program and a few of the areas impacted boats anchoring (St.Aug. , miami, ets.) have attempted to use the placement of mooring fields to eliminate anchoring. Recently St. Augustine installed mooring fields north and south of the bridge of lyons as well as in all or most of salt run in an attempt to eliminate anchoring. THey attempted to regulate the length of time at anchor and the area to anchor. Fortunately these attempts have met w/ opposition and currently the anchoring will be allowed for 30 days w/ a 24 hour break then another 30 days. (this seems workable,although annoying)

In Daytona there is anchoring available alot of places and easy public boat ramp access to dinghy ashore as well as public transportation and provisioning as well as west marines ,a sail loft,as well as a used boat chandlery nearby.
Although , the municipal marina offers no dinghy dockage or shore facilities for those at anchor they do offer free pumpout and fresh water.
I'm suprised Daytona doesn't advertise to cuisers more.
in 2009 I had to "tune up" the local PD as to anchoring statutes when they attempted to regulate me anchoring between seabreeze bridge and Main Street bridge. I basically informed the officer in charge of the marine patrol that the local ordinance did not apply to non-liveaboards vessels at anchor and supplied him w/ copies of the state statutes, statetements from the local FWC commander , the states attorney,and the contact information of a maritime attoney .
He then said he wasn;t interested in being the parking police for the halifax and I had no more issues w/ Daytona.
what suprises me more is he local sailing association (HSA) is very anti-liveaboard and has enacted a rule excluding liveaboards as members as well as being very unwelcoming to liveaboards and achored vessels. I think they are missing an opportunity to further the interests of Sailing and cruising as well as a financial opportunity to charge fees for access to the upland facilities at their club and a wider awareness of there existence.
They could/should take a less from places like Castleton boat club , on the hudson whom offer dockage and a DIY crane for mast stepping to transients. they make out well w/ the funds generated and its a great place to stop.

I don't know how old your request is, but check out the St. Petersberg Municipal Marina...great pricing, right in the heart of the city...gorgeous sailing...

Re: Live Aboard Marinas in Florida

Fort Pierce City Marina allows liveaboards. I'm not sure what the fees are now. It was a clean, well kept marina with restaurants, shops, bars, Farmer's market, library all within walking distance. There are bathrooms, showers and laundry on site. The fees were about $500. a month for everything, including cable and internet. At the time we had a 34' Moody. We loved living there...friendly people and lots to do!

Re: Live Aboard Marinas in Florida

There are a few decent places to live aboard in the Ft. myers area. Would probably cost about300.00 - $4oo. per month for a 36-40 ft. with water and elec. Not cheap! Good Luck

There are at least 7 or 8 marinas that I can think of in the area that could handle that draft in the Pensacola area.
