Hello Gary ~
I have three two bedroom, two bath townhomes, beautifully furnished...in Boardwalk Caper, a lovely marina community. We are 8 minutes by water to Fort Myers Beach, and the Gulf of Mexico...on the areas best deep water canal. Our boardwalk and slips over electricity, water, and are almost right outside the door of the units, depending on which you wish to rent. If you want pictures or more information, please email me at TriciaAnneMeyer@aol.com. I'll be very happy to give you info on the community rentals and the slips. Oh...and 44ft is fine...many of ours are up to 50 at the water line.
Thanks and I hope that we can help!
