    Manasota Key

    Since we are staying on Manasota Key for the boat races in April, does anyone know what the water depth is like on the intercoastal going between Venice to Placida at low tide? Looks kinda shallow around Peterson Island especially. Also, where are the hangout spots in this area. Looking for a place to beach and /or hangout similar to "Crab Island" in Destin with other real boaters / larger crowds.

    Thanks,

    Andy

    No real responses yet? That's not encouraging. Anyone?

    Sorry...can't answer about chanel depths but I've seen some big boat in the Intercoastal behind Manasota Key. You usually see boats beached at the end of Stump Pass State Park and I expect it to be full during the races unless they block access as the race boats will be using Stump Pass to reach the Gulf and Race Course.

    FYI...If any one is looking for a condo on the beach about a half mile north of Englewood Beach for the races, PM me as mine is available. (Work commitment and won't be able to attend this race.)
