Gulf Coast Stopping Point

I'm heading west from Carrabelle, and am looking for a stopping place between here and Mobile where I can leave Escapade, rent a car, and head home for a couple of weeks.

Any suggestions? Cheap is good, not looking for anything other than basic wet storage close to rental cars. Boat is 50+ feet long, 4' draft.

Blue Harbor Marina north of Destin is good.

Jeff has found a temporary home at Gano's "marina," and a very fine gentleman he is!

Looks like Escapade fits in that slip pretty perfectly too!

It's a perfect stopping point. Thanks to Rich and Mary for hosting Escapade.

My dog is happy to see me after a three month absence. We're just back from a long walk through snowy woods. Click image for larger version
