Would give zero stars if available. We keep our 21 foot Grady White in dry storage over the summer each year and have annual engine work done here, over $1000. On picking up the boat this year, the engine power tilt trim, working fine upon storage, was dead as we found out on the way home. The mechanic, John, refused to acknowledge and told us to get a tow back to the marina, although we were just a 15 minute car ride away. The boat had been improperly stored and ruined the power tilt trim and this cost $1200 to repair. He was nasty and arrogant. After years of storing the boat and tens of thousands of dollars, one might have expected a bit more.

We initially had a negative experience with repair, but are now working with the owner and I am optimistic that we can come to a positive outcome. I will update when the boat is back in the water.

Honestly, this is a terrible facility - one of the worst marinas I've had the misfortune in which to stop. Aside from the super sketchy Z shaped approach through extremely shallow water to the Marina's fairways, you simply cannot get their staff to come assist with docking or casting off. This is a real problem given the half length fixed docks which make it a real challenge for crew members to get off and secure lines. Aside from these issues, the bathrooms are quite small and dirty and there are no amenities nearby. Finally, the night we were there their VHF radio was broken so you had to call them and they allowed a large powerboat to tie up overnight on their fuel dock making it almost impossible to get out. Stop further north or further south, but in my opinion this would be a "use only in case of emergency" facility.

This is a small marina. Some slips could be a challenge to dock in. But in general is clean, cozy and picturesque. WIthin walking distance to the beach, bars and restaurants. Excellent location. Staff is very friendly.

We stopped here in route for fuel on the way back from Key West to Palm Harbor. They basically acted like they would rather not bother with us. Fuel pumps were under a tarp, so not obvious where they were. Staff on radio were very unhelpful. No one came out to help us until I basically pleaded with them on the radio. Strong wind and current flowing away from dock made docking a pain - again, if only the staff coulkd have bothered leaving the AC to come lend a hand. We would only stop here in the future if it were an emergency.
