1) Wonderful Towboat US - they brought me in and got me settled when I was having fuel problems.
2) St. Augustine Municipal Marina - clean, well staffed, helpful, competitively priced. A bit tricky to get in, the currents around the Bridge of Lyons are pretty severe. Once in the slip they are not a concern. Showers and rest rooms (at least the mens') were clean and well cared for.
3) The city was a big disappointment. First, they roll up the sidewalks at 9 PM. Not much fun for a sailor. There is a pedestrian only street that is very pretty. But it is all shops and a couple of very mediocre restaurants Sort of Duval St. without any bars. Yes, sounds ugly and it is. I would be remiss however if I did not point out that I saw more very good looking women of all ages in a one hour tour than I have elsewhere except in Key West during Spring Break..
