      O'Maddy's restaurant at Gulfport usually has real Ipswich fried clams on Thursdays. Gulfport's municipal floating docks are nearby. A fun stop.

              In the St. Pete area we have noticed that the visibility is usually limited.

                We are in the Sarasota/Venice area and would love to do an area rendezvous.

                  We have weekended about 1/2 dozen times at the Sarasota Hyatt. but our favorite Marina is Twin Dolphins. Our home is on the Intracoastal at Saint Pete Beach. Griff

                    I used to do shell island most weekends with the occasional Egmont key. The new boat is bigger so I am rethinking some of my old locations due to depth and having to fight the currents. Am waiting to get my boat back from the shop and then I will be out on the water more. For a get the boat back celebration I am thinking of doing a weekend at St. Pete muni marina and another at Caladisi. Also a longer trip to just north of Venice to look for shark teeth. My goal (and the reason I bought the current boat) is to go to the Dry Tortugas. And of course, a few Bahamas runs over the next few years.

                      Your 4085 should be no problem at Shell Key or Egmont Key. The Pass a Grille inlet may be tough with that boat because of the tidal current. Out on the Gulf, the only worry is keeping an eye on the depth with tidal changes. Also, that east wind is appreciated.. Caladisi is another spot when the weather gets a little cooler and the no see ems are less of a problem. For us, Twin Dolphins is only 45 minutes away in nice weather, and the Bradenton area is nice.
