There’s some good info in Captain Larry’s message, partciularly about the Vero Beach Municipal facility, And, these good people are a SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR!
Mas Bueno has made the last crossing of Lake Okeechobee until Sept when the Moore Haven Lock reopens. It turned into a bit of a rush.
We are now at Indiantown getting ready to head north up the Fl East coast from Stuart and would like to stop at a marina along the way for a few days to a week that is close to the Beach for some slower time.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

You might try Palm Coast Marina at M – 208. You can walk or bicycle to the beach from their facility. Can bike or walk to stores, banks etc. The staff welcomes cruisers and they are super nice folks.
We also stayed in the mooring field at Vero Beach. They also have slips but I think you need to call ahead. Again you can walk or bike to the beaches or all over the town. They have plenty of dingy docks. Buss service is free and you can get to all major stores by buss. The drivers were very helpful and again very welcoming to cruisers.
