Mile 556.5 on the ICW The rate here is $1.00/foot and $3/electric, but they gave us the BoatUS discount so that the rate was $.85/foot. They gave us the volume fuel discount (which there's no way we would use enough fuel to get) instead of the BoatUS discount because the volume fuel discount was more. I think the fuel was about $1.43 (diesel). There's no cable TV, but they will let you use the fax line in the office to download e-mail. They have an RV park, a large laundry room, a mail room, showers, and another one of those fancy smashy restaurants. There is a pool (closed now - it's outdoors) and a sauna. Haven't found the ice yet.

Equipment: The people here were decorating for Xmas and stringing lights when we were here. Everyone was very nice, but the problem with this marina is the tides - we are aground in the slip at low tide, and can't get out the entrance until the tide is nearly high.
