Re: Boat People Scum

Marco's cheap. Just drag your boat up on the beach and set up a tent on Dickman's. Nobody will bug you

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!

It was something like that any way. The surf there is chaotic. I have a short vid for proof, but I never uploaded to Youtube or anything.

Seriously though, you can camp for free on several islands around Marco. There are enough unregulated spoil islands along the Florida gulf coast that you could sail the whole length of it and beach every night and legally camp. Might have to pay for some but even those are cheap.

Re: Boat People Scum

Yes, and shark spray lol.

Marco and the 10000 Islands to Florida Bay is easily one of the prettiest and most interesting places I have been in the entire US, but shoal draft is pretty much a must if you want to see it.
