Paul-
What marina in Madeira Beach has covered slips? We like Madeira a lot- easy access to John's Pass, etc.

I have the boat at Sea Towers Condominium, right near the Madiera Beach bridge. They have 24 covered slips, however, there are only 4 slips that can handle a boat of 36-38 ft max. A flybridge could also be a problem. There was a 33 Carver Mariner there when I first leased about 2 yrs ago. Right now, I believe there is only one slip of that size still available. I'm in NY now, so I don't know if it has been rented. They do rent to non-residents.
Also, up in Clearwater beach on Island Estates at the west end is the Island Estates yacht Club with covered slips. This is a condo marina and people do rent slips that they own. Not sure how great the place is as I've only heard rumors of some problems with management there.

I`m about to redo the a/f after 2 years of Jotun Seaguardian, never had that long out of a product before, doing it now for the anodes as much as anything.
Lacking ability to DIY clean the hull, I get pros if/when needed, they use a compressed air system, or something similar,avoids rubbing/brushing/degrading of the a/f.

Woodsong: I just moved over here to Longboat Key (Sarasota). Thankfully, we're on a canal and we will be docking our boat behind our residence. Don and I could probably look after it if you need us to. How many girls do you think would fit on the fly-bridge? How about fuel, .....gonna keep it topped off?

Almost as important, is he going to keep the beer fridge and liquor cabinet stocked?

I promise to keep the beer fridge as well stocked as Seahorse does when Flywright comes to visit him!
Larry- as far as you and Don and a bunch of girls on a boat...I fear you may need to utilize your steller photshop skills to make that happen!!

When Larry and I are on our boats we are svelte with stomachs like rub boards. Women are no problem. Of course, wives and SOs have a little trouble with it. Hell, it's not worth holding my breath that long anyway.

I know a lot of people do this but I don't understand why. With modern bottom paints I can go close to two years before I call in a diver. My experience is limited to South Florida, maybe it's different elsewhere.

Fouling rates vary widely from region to region and water temperature is only one factor that determines how quickly a boat bottom will foul. Also keep in mind that one man's underwater vegetable garden/barnacle farm is another man's acceptably dirty bottom.
