Marina''''s in Florida that are good for liveaboards

Wow! That''s a great price! We bought some property on South Gulf Cove - not far from Chadwick Cove - we just got back from a week of sailing - we were staying at Westons and had to check out Chadwick Cove (we''re thinking about bigger boat/live aboard). The guys are great but I don''t think they gave us that price... - Apparently you have connections. We found out that there''s only 3 marinas in Charlotte county that do liveaboards. Cape Haze (which is applying for their license and hope to be liveaboard soon), Chadwick''s and I believe another around Placida - all at 10.50 a foot per month. Are you the guy they were talking about that rents a slip but then subleases it to other people? We''d be interested as well - We love that area!

Re: Chadwick Cove, does anyone know what kind of depth they have? They are liveaboard?

Marina''''s in Florida that are good for liveaboards

I know the discussion has gone to other parts of the state, but I still wanted to put in 2 cents for the west Florida coast. We are living in Tarpon Springs at Anclote Isles Marina. Great little town outside the hustle and bustle of St. Pete/Clearwater, but still close to drive/bus to.

Marina is on the Anclote River, in from the Gulf about 4 miles or so, around the corner from Tarpon Springs sponge docks/tourist area. Town proper (different than sponge docks) is very pretty and quiet, with good services/amenities.

We pay in the neighborhood of $430/month for a 40-foot slip (smallest we could get), plus metered electricity.

I don''t know if you can help, but I am looking for my younger brother who was last known to be in Ft.Myers Beach and I know that he was a regular at Bonita Bills and he was on the hook in the anchorage nearby. Bruce MacFarlane is his name and his boat is a 37'' Fantasia named La Dolche Vita. If you know him would you please have him get in touch with his older brother Francis in Mississippi or if you know his whereabouts please get in touch with me.

I am concerned as he usually touches base with me at least once a week and it is now going on three weeks without a word.

I can be reached at macfarlane120@bellsouth.net or by calling 601-264-9788

Thanks,

FX MacFarlane

I see alot of people are living on the west coast because it is a bit more laid back and all that. Hollywood Ft Lauderdale and Miami have all got a bunch of choices where you can live and some are cheep and some are just out of sight. The New River which runs through FtLauderdale is full of marinas that are not beautiful but are boat yards and you can learn a hell of a lot and also get ripped of if you don''t watch who you deal with. Same is true in Miami I don''t recomend getting up the Miami river rough neighbor hood. Ft Lauderdale and Hollywood are not to bad hollywood has some places on the ICW only one block off the beach... Dinner Key in Biscayne Bay is ok. You can live on the hook at Dinner Key or in the marina.If you want to live in Miami learn to speek spanish or you may find it hard to get a job.

what is the absolute cheapest liveaboard marina y''all have seen in florida? online searches show as low as $5/ft/month, inland of course, no charge for mangy dogs and scattered beer cans.

On the west coast, the cheapest that I''ve been to, is Bahia Beach Marina. It''s a liveaboard marina (no sneaking). On Tampa Bay. Bathhrooms leave a lot to be desired, and the bugs are horrendous, but it is cheap. Liveaboard fee includes all electricity (which can add up with AC in summer).
30''x12''....$211.25
40''..........$278.00
Live-Aboard
An extra $188.00/mo.
Quality of life is an issue for me, so I pay a bit more for a nice marina.
