LOL,, just busting your chops!
I also heard the Bootleggers pool was reopened but the actual bar is still in Limbo... Way back in the day i remember boats parked to the middle of the coastal with valet guys taking care of everything.
Before Manatees,BUIs and speed limits..

There are so many bars in the Upper Keys that are most don't know about or don't know how to get there. It was said by Stu of the FPC about our group quite a few years ago "Don't follow the Apaches, that Cigarette, or that black boat! They are all a bunch of drunks and they are going bar-hopping. They won't wait for you. They don't care if you break down or run aground."

We like to hit Snook's(before it burned and our favorite bartender died), Lorelei's, Snapper's, Pilot House, Caribbean Club, Islamorada Fish Co., Gilbert's, Alabama Jack's, and Smuggler's Cove to name a few. Its never a bad time. Getting to Key West at night, in the dark, and knowing where every channel marker is located at adds to the excitement.

I always really dug the Boathouse at the Sarasota Hyatt, though I was usually staying at the hotel with the Powerboat magazine crew when I was there and never went by water. Unless coming back to the docks in front of it after the last photo run of the day counts.

At the end of a test day, we'd all shower up and head down to The Boathouse to hang out with the builders and industry folks who were in town for the Performance Trials. Being a Sarasota hangout, the Boathouse always had a bunch of local performance-boat owners. It was a cool mix of folks from the consumer, builder and magazine sides of the go-fast boat world, and everyone always seemed to have a good time.

The bartenders were friendly, the drinks were strong (nice single-malt collection to boot) and the cheeserburges were substantial. And the pictures of offshore racing on the walls ... if another watering hole had a better collection, I've yet to see it.

The Boathouse was definitely a port in the storm. Sad to say, it's no longer.
