remetau 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.

AdamLein 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

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 :}

mk11blue last time my boat was in the water running was in feb. i currently have her pulled so i can do a base coat on the hull she'll be back in the water ready to go once i get fully caught up on the slip fee's. this was an unexpected expense since my husband took care of it. and now with one income and a two year old its a bit steep paying 300$ on a slip for a 26' i will definately get some pics to you, i'll go out to her today. just not the same when she's not in the water :**
