Docking is non existant, unless you rent a slip, if you stay at certain hotels, you could keep the trailer in the lot, and launch daily, but usually they are the crappier ones on the north end(a few miles from the action), but that aint nothin' but a cab ride or scooter race

No, that's what I meant. Where do you rent the dockage? and I wonder where a hotel might just let me leave the truck for the weekend. I all ready have a place to stay.....

I could maybe launch up around Islamirada or something and leave thetruck and boat down and then go back up there sunday or monday????

There is that beautiful brand new facility on Stock Island, which is the only one I would consider if I was taking a full truck/trailer down. But damn if I can't find a link for the place.

Alot of people use the city marina in Key West. Small and the tide is your friend, meaning must be hide tide. Stock Island, use Safe Harbor Marina, again hide tide. You can leave the trailer there for a fee.

Islamorada is a long way off, you got 70 miles of boating there, Marathon would be a better choice. Docking is scarce, I havent been down in a while but the Hilton used to be OK, not even sur if it is still the hilton.

Any Marinas there that will lift your boat off the trailer and put it in the water? Don't want to put my steel one in the salt water.
