Default Marathon gulf side

We just got told our vacation rental on Vaca cut, that we booked in May is not going to be available. Due to delayed construction. WTF. Question is. How is the Saragossa grass or whatever kind it is on the gulf side this year? There is a house that’s available with a short dock that fits our needs. The satellite pictures show grass all the way to the end of it. Our dates are 11/20-11/30.House in question is on Gulfstream Blvd

In the spring it was think. But IMHO there is not even enough grass right now. I would think you would be ok

I live 100' off gulfstream. No grass there today and we just had a good NE blow. Bigger question is dockage....you do not want to leave a boat at a short dock if it is blowing hard north.
I would call Jane at 410-320-6351 to see if her place in KCB is available. Nice canal with dockage.

We just booked ours for that week, but if you check the link in my signature there's a lot of other properties, good luck!

Thanks for the input guy’s . The dock has pilings that I should be able to secure the boat appropriately.
