Howard, I hope this isn't too nosey [your personal expenses are well documented], but what does it cost to rent a boat that size for the day/week? And keep up the good work. I still can't decide who's best, you or Nick Russell so I'm calling it a draw! Bob Plaskon

There is nothing like being out on the water. It is so much fun, and it will wear you out! It is a *good* tired, but between the sun and water, you will definitely get a good night's sleep!

Daddy always had boats when I was growing up - pontoon, ski boat, etc - and we spent every weekend that the weather allowed out on the water - even in the winter. Getting my "land legs" back is usually more difficult for me than getting my "sea legs" in the first place!

Thanks for sharing your adventures this week - really enjoyed the pictures and the videos. Glad that Linda was able to feel better and enjoy herself - being seasick is the worst!

Stay safe...

I think you guys are having way too much fun. Not fair, Boo Hoo !!!!! Enjoy

Bob, the 20 - 22 foot fishing boats generally rent for $200 - $250 a day and from $1,000 - $1,200 per week with some prices higher and some lower.

However, you can never go by the retail prices listed. Much depends on the season and the current market. The rental places might quote the same boat at vastly different prices based on supply and demand.

We happened to hit a good time. Our boat normally rented for $200 a day, but we got our entire six day rental for $500 (plus tax and gas) split between two couples. Don't be afraid to negotiate. :)

How about taking us scuba diving. I've always wanted to scuba in the Keys....it's on my Bucket List!

Great week of blogs! Enjoyed it!


I was also interested in the cost of the boat rental. $500 isn't too bad!

We have been scuba divers for years and Al speared lots of Hog Fish. We were always told you couldn't catch them by line. What kind of bait did you use for them...any secrets?
