Hey Debbie! We are also in Alicetown. We got here at the end of the day and just cleared customs. We're at the end of the Weeche's Dock, right by the channel. Call us on 16 tomorrow. What's the name of your boat?

I would try a couple of places near the base of the Roosevelt Bridge:

1. City of Stuart Marina - west side of bridge. They are doing a large re-model, and they may not be open at this tiime.

2. Harborage Marina - east side of Roosevelt Bridge....probably $2/foot also, but they are pretty empty, so who knows?

3. Dockside Marina - further west than City Marina.

4. Another marina (can't remember the name) that is behind the old Jack Baker's restaurant. It's a hole in the wall, and if they have something, it's probably inexpensive.

Hope this helps....

Florida is very seasonal, and you are looking at high-season rates.

Where do you want to be? Palm Beach is really upper-crust, and they will ding you.

The farther north from Palm Beach, the lower the rates will be. There are some places both north and south of PB that ought to have lower rates.

What do you want to see in S. Florida? Gimme' some clues and I'll try to help.

Hi, Debbie:

My wife and I are Stuart-ites, and have lived there for about fifteen years. We know the area pretty well, and will be able to give you some useful information.

Also, you have been in contact with Stuart Bell. I've met him, and he is extremely knowledgeable about the area. Between us, you should be able to learn quite a bit.

Please let me know how we might help you.

I've "spoken" with Gary several times and suggested marinas closer to the PBI airport (and me) so I can help him if he needs another set of hands or every imaginable tool. In either case, plan on coming by the anchorage just South of Lake Worth inlet - I'll help provision with a car and a costco or sam's card. Have a safe trip.

What an awesome profile, and welcome. I have been a want-to-be liveaboard for 3 years or better, but here in the cold and snowy northeast, it isn't that pleasant. I agree with all you have said about what freedom it gives you! Sailing in San Diego myself only for 4 hours, I know that you have some of the best weather area to cruise in. Best to you and godspeed with your dreams!

You are right...lots of work. However, as I was reading your reply my wife looked over my shoulder and reminded me of something. A few years ago I was with a friend at a boat show talking to a boat builder who does lots of restorations. When he heard that I had a CAL 34 he commented that she was definetly worth spending time and money. However, my friend who had a Islander 36 did NOT get such a favorable comment.

Hi, I'm near Palm City - sailing a catamaran. If your son needs a set of hands on his new boat, I'd be happy to help for a few days. ASA certified and USCG licensed

How much stress does it put on the sail if someone sits on the boom using the mainsail to relax? Looks like fun and something my 13yr old would love but I thought I would ask before I do it.

Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
