Default Marathon boat launch

Headed to Marathon in August, usually stop in Islamorada so this is new to me. Pulling my boat so will the MM54 boat launch handle a 34 foot boat, if not what is suggested.

I would definitely use the 33rd St ramp for a boat that size.
The ramp at MM54 is not bad but the water gets pretty skinny at low tide...there is limited room to maneuver your truck and trailer as well..pretty tight to US1.

Don't bother with MM54 near the Island Fish Co. go to 33rd St and don't look back.

Thanks all for the advice, looking at charts I am not to concerned about the water, there is plenty for me. The boat and tow rig were my concern at 54 viewing sat photos, so 33 it is.
