Default Where Can You Dock a Boat Overnight near the Miami Convention Center?

Plan on going to Monty's on Friday afternoon.

Would prefer to leave the boat in Miami on friday night instead of driving it back to Boca in the Dark..

Need some suggestions...

Security is a major concern

Why not just keep it there at the Miami Beach Marina?That is right where Monty's is.

I've stayed at Miami Beach Marina a couple times as a transient. Great place and very secure. Walk over to News Cafe for breakfast.

Does the Chia effect come into play if you run the boat daily. I'd like to leave the boat in the water for 4-5 days. I can take it out every couple of days to clean if necessary. Not worried about engines, I have closed-cooling.

4 or 5 days should not be a problem especially at Miami Beach Marina. Lots of water flowing / current. However, your hull may yellow a little if you leave it for more than 3 days.

WK42-

You can leave the boat at my house overnight if you can't find a place. We are by Atlantic Blvd bridge. If you are staying in Boca, it is 15 minutes by car.

On one condition though: You have to give me a ride in that awesome Tiger!!!

LS JR.
