Sarasota Area Parking Help!

Hey folks, My brother and I are both trailering our boats down to the sarasota area from orlando. We are staying in a cottage on longboat key that doesn't allow parking for boats. Does anyone know somewhere affordable to safely park a boat for 2 nights this weekend. I've called a few marinas and the best answer i got was 300 dollars for a wet slip which wouldn't help me with the trailers. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    There's a Publix on LBK. Doubt if they stay open real late. Not a high crime area.
    Public lot up on Anna Maria? Don't think there are any on LBK.
    All Walmarts allow RV's to park overnight. One on Cortez Rd at about 57th st. Shady area, tho.
    Main problem is security. If you're leaving the boats on trailers, you'll need a good trailer lock. I'd contact another LBK motel/hotel that has plenty of space and see if they'll rent you a spot cheap.
