From rigging to radios, all things nautical were on sale at the 21st Annual Cortez Nautical Flea Market at the Florida Maritime Museum on Saturday. Live music by local acts, including one who played for 15 years with Lynyrd Skynyrd (on his turntable at home) entertained the crowds, shopping for dive vests, fishing poles, lures, antique lanterns and vintage anchors.
