Default Sarasota Boat hang-outs

Hi guys,

Looking to head down to Sarasota for an overnight with my friend from the Jersey Shaw. Since I'm a newbee to
Tampa, where is a good place to take the boat for an overnight? I am looking at the weekend of 3/18-3/20. Looking for a Marina with or without hotel accomidations. I'g go further into Ft. Meyers but not sure how long it would take and what the night-life is like. I keep my boat in the Clearwater area.

Thanx!

the Hyatt. Walking distance to downtown, cheap cab fare back if you're too drunk to walk.

Marina Jack if you don't need a hotel.

For sure the Hyatt in Sarasota, Marina, Bad a$$ pool, Tiki Bar (best mud slides ANYWHERE) , and the boat house restuarant/bar with all boat race pics. Give a call when you are down I may be out in my 24 and we can go to lunch on the water somewhere. 941-915-1447

Hope the friend is of the opposite sex
Hyatt is the place. Plenty places to go, Marvista for lunch, Casey Key, Sanibel & a ton of places.
You will find that the best boating IMHO starts at St Pete/Clw & southwards. Also several bars/ restaurants in the Tampabay area. Come to an OPBA meeting & join us guys on some of the runs.

Hey Ryan, finally got a new boat and will be needing some vinyl when I get some$$ saved up again.

Ryan, he will also need to know where he can get some live bait and tackle too.

Another view of the Hyatt.

Food is excellent at "the Boathouse", and the drinks are cold. It is an "offshore atmosphere" for sure.

[QUOTE=Speed2Lead]Johno,What do you have now?

Frank,
I went with a Fishboat with a high performance bimini ...just in case Cuda ever rides with us!
Bought a 29 Renegade with 250 Mercs. Kind of in between fish & sport. No rod holders on board. I wanted to go cat, however Momma had other intentions & insurance is very reasonable.So we hopefully have an all purpose type boat.
