The Palm Beach Sailing Club is on the west side of the mooring area you're talking about (south of Peanut Island). They're most welcoming.

Bought the system at the Miami Boat Show two years ago

You can't go wrong, air between the mattress and bunk, great cushioning. Makes our 4 inch foam seem like a bed at home.

Riviera Beach Marina

Just as you enter the Lake Worth Inlet on the west side of Peanut Island. Easy fuel pull up and either mooring or you can rent a slip at the marina.
