Ft. Lauderdale to Key West

Recommended Posts

Ok,

 

So we're thinking about trailering our 105 down for the Lauderdale to Key West race. Anyone know a good yard to put the boat in and step the mast. Also probably gonna pull the boat in Key West.

 

Thanks

Not sure where to put it in but there are 2 marinas on Stock island  to have it hauled and have not had a problem with either. Florida has restrictions on over width boats during the weekend on the road.  Don't speed through Deer Key!

Dania Cut is a good spot to put in, or you could to to Lauderdale Marine if you want to spend a little more.

 

Robbies on Stock Island to haul out.

Have you budgeted for strip clubs?  Twenty years ago I was there for KWRW and the only two places I went were the strip club and the ATM.  YMMV.

Strip Clubs go in the "off the record" budget

Smart strippers also provide "Boat cleaning" services...but rates may change depending on service level.

I brought a melges 30 to that race from MI maybe 4 years ago. Get your budget together add 20%. Then have a few beers that night and double it.  When you wake up in the morning it should be around $6,500 not counting hotel rooms and assuming you are driving it down.
