    Marathon FL recommendations

    I'll be towing two ski's from Va. to Marathon FL, 1200 miles one way. New trailer so hoping for no unexpected break downs.

    My questions are for those that have visited or live near Marathon. I'll be there on the water for two weeks (Feb '09). Will be entering the water into the Boot Key harbor area. From the satellite view, looks like hundreds of boats moored there.

    Experiences or recommendations for:

    Hotel stops about half way (just beyond Fla /Ga line)?
    Places to visit from the ski?
    Snorkeling off of ski? Do you anchor the ski while snorkeling? Any restrictions?
    Any dangers to be aware of?
    Fla PWC laws / restrictions?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Keyzbum,

    I see you're a fisherman too. I fish the Chesapeake Bay where I live on the water.

    How would I contact you to ride? You may also have a charter boat recommendation?

    Thx

    palmbeach jesse,

    I marked your website. Hey, looks like I'm not the only elder rider on a PWC. I'm 62 and my retired neighbors think I'm nuts when I'm out carrying on with my Seadoo GTI SE! The second SE is coming next week and will be the wifes.

    I'll raise the ride issue as the Feb date gets near. Would love to meet the club members.

    Hey Matt what's up, maybe next time we head down there you can give us that tour through the islands sounds like a nice ride.
