Anybody know of a list of "cat friendly" motels? Every time I try to take the boat somehwere it's always a hassle trying to find a place to launch.

The beach lodge in Port aransas TX let me park my 16 sans trailer in their parking lot while I was staying there. The parking lot butted up to the beach. 100yd push on cattrax to the water wasn't too bad. Fairly level and the beaches were well groomed.


I'm boatless.

Maybe others will add a favorite or friendly vacation spot. Might become a useful tool.

Pete:

If you ever get out our way you can park camper at the Texas City Dike and sail with us anytime. One of the BEST places to sail the way the wind blows most of the time. The wind gets a lift off the dike. GREAT wind and flat water . Straght off the beach most of the time, just raise rudders, set on bows and boat will back out till time to put the rudders down. ALSO we are hosting the F-18 Nationals in Oct.

Pete what was the name of that ONE hotel at Lake Jackson in Sebring FL. Maybe TIMBO can chime in. I totally forgot the name.

I cant wait to go back, so much fun.

The Sirata on St. Pete beach. Set up on a grass area next to the resort, beach wheels to get to the water. Not sure if this is a common practice with other places but here the room rate was 30 bucs less a night for walk ups as opposed to making a reservation.


Have Fun

Fleet 111 is planning the annual Keys Trip in May; we are staying at the Stone Ledge Motel in Key Largo; they have great rates and like cats; plenty of parking, nice dock for power boats.

Robi, I can't remember the name either. But, it sure was fun. Anyway, it's Sebring, in twenty minutes you can drive completely around the lake.

Murph, I'm gonna put this matter up for my cfo's approval. Right now!!

Mary: I know you and Rick are really busy right now, but is there a way to make this thread a resource?

Ask people to post a good experience, maybe arrange it by State or zip code?

Good idea, Pete. I have thought about that before, and there have been other threads for specific areas of the country. It would be nice to have a central listing place.

Of course, I have no idea what the technical requirements are. Anything I can do to help?

Yeah, search the forums for those other threads that have to do with cat-friendly motels and launch locations and put them in the favorite threads in your "My Home." And then go through them and make a list.

The motel you guys stayed at in Sebring was the Sunset Beach Motel. The lake is down a good two feet from when you guys were here. There is still plenty of water to run a good regatta, but at the end of my dock the water is only 12" deep!! I hope it starts raining pretty soon. <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

You can still come and sail anytime because with beach wheels you can easily launch, but the home owners are all pulling their power boats out because they can't get them off the lifts for the sand!

They don't have a website listed on their business card. They have a bar, food, rooms, and most importantly a place for the boat fairly close to water. Nice small town, not too touristy but I was also there in the off season (Early Feb).
