Growing up and boating in NJ, I came to the same stark realization when I moved down here.

Been there, not fun. Yep, I know exactly where Huber's is.

I'm going to Panama City Fl.
I can use the park launch a couple of miles from the condo. I spoke to the condo and their security people today. They have a place on the premises for boats. gated resort w/ 24 7 security. I will chain and lock the boat and trailer and block it with other cars if need be. I plan on washing and flushing w/ salt away after running it.
I think I have it covered now
