Messing About in Boats

What is better than living in Tampa Bay, or Florida, for that matter?  In my humble opinion, seeing our beautiful Bay area is never better than seeing it from the "fish eye" view--from those lovely surrounding waters of Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.  As my good friend Capt Bob always says:

"Believe me, my young friend, there is NOTHING--absolute nothing--half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."

Since I've listed the best dog places in Pinellas, why not start on boat stuff?  make Haste

Here are a few ideas of where to put the things in:

Boat Ramps at Pinellas County Parks

  • A.L. Anderson Park 39699 U.S. Hwy 19 North, Tarpon Springs
    Open 24 Hours - Fresh water - Restroom facilities available

  • Belleair Boat Ramp 3900 W. Bay Drive, Belleair Bluffs
    Open 24 Hours - Salt water - Restroom facilities available

  • Ft. De Soto Park 3600 Pinellas Bayway South, Tierra Verde
    Open 24 Hours - Salt water - Restroom facilities available

  • John Chesnut, Sr., Park 2200 East Lake Road, Palm Harbor
    Open Sunrise to Sunset - Fresh water - Restroom facilities available

  • Lake Seminole Park 10015 Park Boulevard, Seminole
    Open Sunrise to Sunset - Fresh water

  • Park Boulevard Boat Ramp 18651 Gulf Blvd., Indian Shores
    Open 24 Hours - Salt water - Restroom facilities available

  • Philippe Park 2525 Philippe Parkway, Safety Harbor
    Open Sunrise to Sunset - Salt water

  • War Veterans' Memorial Park 9600 Bay Pines, St. Petersburg
    Open 24 Hours - Salt water - Restroom facilities available

On September 23, 2003 the BCC voted (5-2) in favor of implementing a $5 boat trailer parking fee and a $100 annual pass for the same. The fee applies to the eight parks listed above.

Great information for local boaters...perhaps you can do a post on the local boat clubs?

How can I get a boat if I dont have one?  Or are you offering to take us out in yours?

The only place I would rather be than on a boat is in the water. The only difficult thing about living in New Mexico is not having any large bodies of water but it is amazing what a great lift you can get THAT far away.

Boat Clubs, great idea, Leah!  I'm on that one next, for sure--I've actually thought about joining one more than once, especially since my boat's been out of the water...

...which also answer your question, Scott--boat clubs are a great way to get on the water without owning one, and as soon as mine's back in the water, I'd be happy to take some people out!

I'm with you too, Deb--when I came back to Florida from CA seven years ago, I said I'd only do it if I could be on the water somehow--it's just too dang hot in the summer otherwise!  I can imagine NM is just as bad...oh, I know:  "It's a dry heat..."right?  ;-)
