Hey,

My wife and I are looking at new places to take our 17' Montauk over the 4th of July weekend. We're contemplating traveling from G'ville down to Anna Maria Island. There is a place called the Tortuga Inn, while pricey, looks nice and has slips. Not sure about a ramp.

Any comments on other options, the boating, places to go, see or do in the area?

Thanks,

Rick

Anna Maria has their own fire works display which is a must in the boat. Beercan Island is also fun. Eggmont key is just a skip north from anna maria island as well. The first island is Passage key which is naked so be carefull there, might burn yourself. If you want to meet up, give me a e-mail with your name and number, etc.

PS if you need a slip, I have plenty of room in my canal but am about 11 miles from the island inland up the manatee river.

I have a house on a deepwater canal off Palma Sola Bay. I'm sure I can hook you up with a dock for a few days or more. We are two miles east of Anna Maria.

Maybe we should have a little rendezvous Fourth of July weekend at my house or nearby.

Hello All,

Wow. Thanks for all the replies, info and offers!

I've been away for a week and unfortunately in the interim our plans for the 4th have been adjusted to the Atlantic side.

Incidentally I did find a place with slips, The Tortuga Inn, (http://www.tortugainn.com). I'll have to plan for later in the summer or fall. C'est la vie.

Thanks again,

Rick

Are the Gators that team with the Indian Head ;)

I'm from NJ, we don't have college football up there(except Penn state) nor did we watch it. It is amazing how big it is in the south. If it does not have an engine in it, I don't watch it anyway ;)

Yup, gold and maroon I think???

I couldn't care less about football or any team type sport. But, my daughter just graduated. (more money for toys!)

Sorry to all you sports people. But then again Nick, I and a few others are from NJ. We have a team, but aren't they from NY anyway?

What exit? I know, I know, go drive the southern and nor'western parts, nice place to be from.
