Don't overlook Cape Coral either. I have made a few trips down there but have not convinced the wife yet...

Boating in Tampa Bay is Awesome!

Year round boating, Attractions, amenities, airports, waterfront living, etc. etc.

It is a great place to live and boat

what's your price range? Tarpon Springs is nice, though I prefer an area that is a central boating area. I live in S. St. Pete where I have easy access to tampa and tampa bay, manatee/sarasota, St. Pete/clearwater, the ICW and very easy access to the gulf. Figure out what you will be doing most, and also you will need DEEP WATER for whatever house you find. Please physically inspect the property/dock for water depth, and local nautical charts. It might give you ahead start in the areas you should be looking at?

Good Luck

Tarpon's a really nice area. I a little out of the way, in terms of the 'hot spots' but it's still close enough to be able to cruise quickly to the more popular areas. Tarpon is certainly quieter and more laid back; You could find more land up there at a lower cost than further south into Clearwater and St. Pete.

bob, just something I have always wanted to do, I go down every winter, and I never want to go home, I love it down there, but i have never boated there that is why i put this post up, so I could get some input about boating in the area. As far as the lake goes, it gets boring after a while, that is why I have been going to the 1000 islands so much, I guess i just want a change, I want to get a little more into the fast lane. I could stay here another winter and freeze my ass off or I could be boating all winter, and for those rare occasions I want to snowmobile its only a 3 hour flight home. but if you are down there I am sure we will have some fun with the boats, Britton is always good for a few laughs.
