Even warmer than yesterday
I had reserved a slip at Cooley’s Landing Marine on the New River for 5 nights starting today. The current on the river runs up to 3 knots so it is important to plan an arrival at slack tide to get into a slip. This must be the best deal in Ft Lauderdale: Around $1 a foot, plus $10 for electric a day. You are in the middle of town and are entertained by a constant procession of boats large and small going up and down the river. I’ll be here for a few days, hope to meet some old friends, and then on to Miami Beach for the Miami boat show.
