how long can I leave a boat in SW florida canal water

Recommended Posts

I am renting a condo on a canal in Cape Coral, FL that has a boat slip, but no lift. I want to dock my boat at my condo and need info for how long I can safely let the boat sit in the water before trouble starts to appear. The canal has direct access the river, which in turn leads to the Gulf. I am assuming the canal water is brackish, but I have seen rays and dolphins in the canal. I have access to a lift so I can lift the boat out of the water on occasion. So the question is; How long can I leave y boat in the water before all the nasty stuff starts to appear?

Thanks

 

Btw... I have a 2005 Chaparral SSi I/O all fiberglass.BT 1.JPG
