Venice, Florida dockage

It would appear that free dockage in Venice, Florida may soon be a thing of the past for those that travel in that direction,

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.

Yep, I hate it too. I've stayed there several times and loved it. I really wish Florida wasn't getting so cruiser un-freindly. I love that whole west Fla coast.
