Yeah, took us a while to get used to it as well, being from MI. Don't get me wrong, there are lots of boats on the water in the summer, but the marinas themselves are busier in the winter when all the snowbirds are here. We don't boat much in the winter. Maybe once a month, if it's warm. Once the water heats up to 83 and we can start swimming (which it is now), we are out a lot more.

Curious about the name "Big House". A lot of fire departments have a "big house" too. Are you retired FD too?
I was a large community builder - worked for Harkins for years, started my own firm and sold it in 2007 to retire and get out of what I thought was going to be a bad recession - not this bad, but pretty darn bad. I built a lot of buildings all around MD, Virginia, PA, WVA, DC and other places - I'm sure you know many of the projects I did, or was a part of in the Towson Area.

Stop by Mariners Trading on Tamiami....

He has lots of used stuff but you need to really haggle as his prices seem very high (to me). Lots of cool stuff in there, fun to just take a look.
