So, I''m wondering now, and a litle worried. I have been considering two trips from the west coast of Florida to the east. One through the Okechobee, and the other to Key west and around the tip. That trip is attractive and seems like more fun and less bugs, but only if I feel like I can take a break in Boot Key Harbor if I have to.

Is it so inhospitable to cruisers, notably liveaboard cruisers now, that I might not be able to count on staying there? I''m thinking (weather providing) no more than a week.

I don''t keep up with marina names anymore because they change every yr or two. Harbortown on the Barge Canal is one of the local favorites. I checked liveaboard rates a few months ago and got the $8 figure for 35'' on a yr lease. Call marinas in the Melbourne, Merritt Island, Port Canaveral area for specifics.

The marina is called Boot Key Harbor city
marina 305-289-8877. The mooring is by mooring balls and the dingy dock is very close. Go to their web site at if you use your broser type in marathon florida and there are several articles about the marina in the past and what has been going on for the past few yrs. Marathon Florida is about half way down the keys. We are moving our 47 vagabond
to that location in May to make her ready for crusing. They charge 150.00 per month and you get one free pumpout per week. Any additional pumpouts are 5.00 and the boat called the honey pot will come out when called. They have cleaned the marina up quite a bit and it''s now a enviromental clean area. There were 183 sunken boats in the marina area they have been taken out of the water and they are very very strick on no
discharges. The water is in good condition and the bottom is now clean. Hope this gives you some idea about the place. The newspaper in Marathon has several articles on the marina and you can call them and talk to, I think his name is Jason and he will tell you all about it.
Good luck

I found a place in Marathon. It''s 150.00 per month at moore and you have to live aboard
but that''s ok with us. we are self-sufficient
and they provide pump out service at your boat at a reasonable cost. Nice clean place.

You can go up around the Canaveral area and spend around $8 ft. Only problem is the 200 mile run north from Miami.
