I'm with SF. We stopped in St. Augustine last month for a few days. We took a mooring for $20/day with free pump out. We didn't need the AC/genset with the nice ocean breeze. The dinghy dock is big with plenty of room.

If you do want the dock, they had plenty of space. Dock or mooring, it's a good stop.

When the St Aug mooring field was originally installed there were two significant problems -

1. You were required to tie up at the fuel dock to get your mooring assignment which meant you had to deal with the current, and

2. The pendents were way too short. A boat of any size with a husband wife crew had a hell of a time getting a line thru the loop to tie up.

I’m guessing Larry knows if these problems have been fixed.

Other than that it’s a great place to “moor” .

We enjoy MoJo barbeque and Scarlett O'Hara's.

Scarlett is kinda a college bar but has great pulled pork and their chicken is really good.

Reasonable.

MoJo has the best burnt ends I've ever had!!@

We called 20 minutes out. We mentioned it was our first time, had a dog and would like good access to town if possible. He gave us our mooring assignment with good directions. When we go there it was between the Fort and the bridge, about perfect!

The pendent? I don't remember but our bow is 8' off the water and we did it.

And as Mike says, "it's a great place to moor" and the town has about everything to you'd want.

We spent a night anchored in the creek behind the Sea Ray factory in Flagler Beach. The next day we had a very pleasant 5-6 hour cruise to St. Augustine.

We hung on a mooring in St. Augustine over the Memorial Day weekend. We had a great time.

It can be a bit rolly in the mooring field though, it is right off the ICW.

The tour of Castillo de San Marco was great; they even had live cannon fire.

Our favorite place was “The Rendezvous” on St. George St. They have a gazillion different imported beers.

The water taxi runs until 6pm. Have fun. KJ

Spent two nights last weekend at City Marina, even with new breakwater the current still rips and the docks still rock. Marina was pretty much empty and I think the reason is the $24.95 charge per night for 50 Amp power. Conch House or Comanche Cove are better alternatives unless you need to be downtown.

Anyone going to the City Marina should ask for instructions to the used marine store.

Its a good walk , so bring your shopping cart if a spare anchor , a set of hatches or port lights are on the wish list.

Lots of small stuff , hardware , hinges , electric parts too.

Prices are 1/2 to 1/4 Sailorman if FT Laud.

Sailors Exchange is about a 10 block walk directly west on King Street from the City Marina. We always make the walk and stop at the Stainless Steel Dinner halfway there. The Exchange is open M-F 9:30 to 5:00 and Saturday until 2:00. Closed on Sunday and Monday. The also have another store in Jacksonville near the Ortega Marina, Lambs, Huckins, etc. It used to be called Pier 17.
