I don't think Milos knows at this point...says the plan is to buy a small 'blue water' boat, hit the islands and then put it on the hard for sometime in Florida.??

I'd agree with QTA in that Indiantown would be a good choice. Easier access from the east coast (Okeechobee can get pretty shallow during dry seasons) and offers pretty good protection (as good as it gets in Florida) and is a full service marina and DIY facility. A small boat should have no trouble with bridges. -no afflilation...just a LOT of folks use 'em for an 'on the hard' hurricane hole...acres of boats!

joethecobbler what do you call cheap?
check out the glades boat Storage yard, just google it.
it's like $100-200 a month to store on the hard 40-50" unless it's gone up the last 2-3 years .
the 49' rail bridge is on the east side of the lake just after clearing the lock.
Indian town is further east. Sp, if your coming from the atlantic your height is not an issue.

Sorry, but cheap, safe and S. Florida just don't go together.
I was going to say the same thing.

Sorry, but cheap, safe and S. Florida just don't go together. If you want cheap storage you have to go at least up to the lower Chesapeake. Safer up there too.

don't forget the bridge

Just remember there is a 49' bridge you have to be able to clear coming from the atlantic side. Don't know if you need to clear it to get to indiantown

TQA This is the place you want. It is far enough inland to avoid the worst winds if a hurricane strikes. I left my boat there one summer while I explored the US in a camper. Run well by good people. Also they are happy with DIY and liveaboard which is RARE in Florida. Rates are fair - a lot less than the coastal ones.

quick googling found this article
BoatUS Cruising Logs

However, Florida is expensive and marinas are filled, if you go either north to North Carolina or west to Texas, you'll find more and more reasonable prices and more spaces to park a boat. Cruising USA waters is fun too
I'll check that area and the web site, thanks

I'm quite sure it's a lot of fun, but really, we want to escape from the winter, and nc sounds a bit chilly to us...may be Texas a little warmer? ...thing is, last year we were at Bahamas on a friend's boat, and it was mainly sweater weather....of course it was great, but we wouldn't go cooler than that....

Thank you so much. I'll check it up...
