Horton park in Cape Coral is a nice ramp. We are the house next door to the boat ramp. If you need any tools or anything just stop over.

If you are asking about the Cape Coral area it would work well. I have had boats between 20ft to 38ft and can get to all the spots that my wife and I like to go without any issues.

Like Don said, just fine, the water is calmer than it is back at LOTO, you'll be fine and have fun. maybe we'll see you out and about.

I'm staying on Coral Drive in Cape Coral, so if anyone has any ramp recommendations, let me know. Thanks for all encouragement! Unless there is an early blizzard up here, I'll probably go for it.
Don't forget Cash Bar/Greg is a Realtor in Florida!!

I have been thinking about making a trip to Fl with the boat in tow. We have friends in Hypoluxo on the I.C. where the boats run wide open and many teams do test runs there. Sure looks like a ton of fun.

JTeam, I got boating fever also for this sat., my boat is on its way to the cape tonight and I am planning on trying to go to the run. I have never been to Laishley Crab House by water, looks like a right turn and up thru the Matlacha Pass and into Charlotte harbor. I purchased a home very close to
Rosen Parkmore
2414 Southeast 15th Terrace
Cape Coral, FL 33990
my brother has used this ramp alot, maybe check this out. I also have a formula 382, maybe see you out there. Todd

InR,

I don't know how familiar you are with the intercoastal, just be careful and make sure you stay in between the channel markers when you're going North up through Matlacha Pass, it gets shallow in some areas, Harpoon Harry's is in the same area and is a great place to go too, have fun.
