RE: Venice, Florida dockage
That's a pity, I stayed there in 2007 and again Monday night this week. It is not a fancy place but good to tie up to for a night and the price is right. Both times we have stayed there we have made the short walk to the Crows Nest for a meal, not an inexpensive outing. I guess in the future I'll be anchoring off the ICW.
Before we left yesterday morning a tree removal crew came in to take out the pine trees along the dock the were also cutting the mangroves way back.

Docked at Fishermans Village Marina Punta Gorda FL, definitely not free but very nice
