Planning a 9 day adventure on the new Adventure Craft (28ft). Wanting to launch somewhere on the intercoastal and just see where we end up. I need a launch that is going to allow me to keep my truck and trailer safe for 9 days, somewhere in Alabama or Florida. Any ideas? I launched at the one over by LU LU's but they only allowed 48hrs. I saw a nice launch across from Perdido Pass as well as a launch by Holiday Marina, but not sure if they allowed overnight.

If you want a place that you pay for, try Destin Marina in Destin, just north of the bridge. Susan has fenced storage and will charge by the day or week. She also has two slips you can use. There's a really nice public landing at Cinqo Bayou and one on Navarre Beach, but I'm not sure how long they will allow you to park.

Call a couple Tow companies and see if they have storage near by and can you store it there.

You can launch at happy harbor. 4205 county rd 6, gulf shores 251-968-7492. Call them because there are a lot of boat storage places within walking distance that have gated storage. the launch is in Bon secour bay its about 3 min from mobile bay or intercostal.
