I have no clue as there were so many units available with a boat slip we didn’t worry about it. You can’t beat docking right at your spot after a long day on the water I wouldn’t even consider a spot that didn’t have a dick there.
Interesting choice Robert

We parked at Phil Foster Park

Yes I know but thats where we parked. I'm not saying its a good idea for you or am I by any means suggesting it would be with out issue if you did. When we went it allowed us to purchase a week at the machine you pay at I'm not sure if it still will allow you to do so or not. A week was the max the machine would allow us to pay for at one time which was less then we needed so all our parking had expired by the time we arrived back but we had no problem. I would go the day before and see if the machine will still sell a week if it will not I would probably choose another spot.

No problem 👍🏽 we’ll see you on the next one!!
Wanted to update you. Going one month after you. July 6 thru 14th. Finally got it worked out (with everyone). Have you figured out the parking situation? That's next on my agenda. Not sure what to do yet.

@Gadiel We have narrowed down our dates to July 6-7 for launch from West Palm Beach and 15-18 coming back depending on the weather. We are giving ourselves this flexibility in dates. Attached is a rough tracing of our route. We should hopefully be visiting Jetboaters group in Bimini on the way back.

We are a couple of boats (Formula 350ss and a walkaround 23’ with twin Yamaha outboards) with a chap sig 270 as a backup just in case. I should be finalizing the trip and dates by end of February. I got fantastic information about the trip from @Berrie , @Andy S and @robert843 and will follow in their footsteps. Let me know if you need any info. I will be following your trip in June closely.

I am not stay or doing what @Amar Nanduri is doing (they're having a guys trip). I'm piggy-backing on their ride over and back. Going to do our own thing. He was kind enough to allow me to follow.

Last conversation with @Amar Nanduri , they're going to do a big loop during the week. We'll meet and fill up at West End and then onto West Palm.

We found a safe place to park our trucks/trailers for a week but it is going to require us to leave from Jupiter instead of West Palm Beach. Launching from Jupiter is only 4 miles longer to West End an we are ok with that
This place is about 15 min drive from the boat ramp
