  • Sunken Barge Closes Fort Pierce Inlet, off AICW Statute Mile 966

    The inlet remains closed and the exact location of the sunken barge is not yet available from the Fort Pierce USCG, but a CG vessel is currently on location diverting traffic to inlets north and south of Fort Pierce. This report is from TCPalm and this alert is brought to you by Fort Pierce City Marina, a SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR!

    UPDATE 2/26

    FORT PIERCE — The Army Corps of Engineers has hired an international marine salvage firm to work as quickly as possible on removing a sunken barge blocking the Fort Pierce Inlet.
    “It’s an emergency,” Army Corps spokeswoman Susan Jackson said of hiring Resolve Marine Group of Fort Lauderdale, overnight Wednesday night. The company worked with the oil rig fire and spill in the Gulf of Mexico and with the recovery of the passenger ship Concordia off Italy.
    Coast Guard spokesman Petty Officer Jon-Paul Rios said it is too early to say when the federal navigation channel at Fort Pierce Inlet will be reopened.

    FORT PIERCE — While federal officials continue looking into how to remove a barge that sank in the heavily used Fort Pierce Inlet, boaters are being diverted 20 miles north or south to other ocean inlets, according to Coast Guard officials.
    The 100-foot by 40-foot barge broke up and sank Tuesday, claiming the life of a man who lived in a cabin on it. The barge went down in the middle of the ship channel, about 100 yards inside the end of the ocean jetties.
    That was in 40 feet of water, but the wreckage — including the cabin and other gear — could be as close as 10 feet from the surface, officials said.
    Coast Guard spokesman Petty Officer Jon-Paul Rios said it is too early to say when the Fort Pierce Inlet will be reopened. A team from the Army Corps of Engineers is to be at the inlet today to help out.
    The hundreds of boats that regularly use the inlet are being diverted either to the Sebastian Inlet near Sebastian or to the St. Lucie Inlet in Stuart. However ships at the Coast Guard Station, at the Fort Pierce Inlet, can still get out if need be.
    At the Indian River Terminal, the closure is delaying deployment of a dredge into the ocean to help with renourishing beaches south of the inlet, said terminal spokesman Ken Roberts.
    It also could delay the arrival of a barge through the inlet that’s coming in for repairs Friday.
    “Can I put a number on economic impact, no,” said city of Fort Pierce Marina Director Dean Kubitschek. “It is having an effect on commercial charter boat operations and marinas.”
    The barge was being towed along the coast from Key Biscayne to Georgia. When it began taking on water, it diverted into the Fort Pierce Inlet, ran into strong tides and sank.

    FORT PIERCE — The Fort Pierce Inlet is closed Wednesday after a barge that was being towed sunk early Tuesday evening in the inlet, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.
    Fireman Mark Umphrey with the Coast Guard Station in Fort Pierce said as of 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, the inlet is closed and that boats can’t go in or out.
    Fishing charter operators were turned back Wednesday morning. Capt. Tris Colket of Last Mango charters said the Fort Pierce Police Department Marine Unit turned 21 boats around Wednesday morning.
    Umphrey did not know when the inlet would reopen.
    The barge began sinking about 6:30 or 7 p.m. Tuesday, as it was being towed by a tug named the Main Office, said Petty Officer Jon-Paul Rios.
    Rios said the Coast Guard sent boats and a helicopter, and recovered one person and a dog out of the water. The Coast Guard continued looking for a second person. The condition of that person wasn’t clear.
    Rios said the barge already was submerged when Coast Guard officials arrived.
    Catherine Chaney, St. Lucie County Fire District spokeswoman, said rescue crews treated a man in his late 50s at the Coast Guard station, but she said he declined to be taken to a hospital.
    Rios, based in Miami, said officials used markers to designate the location of the submerged barge and alert others to the hazard to navigation.
    Rios could provide little other information, such as the origin or destination of the vessels.
    Staff writer Ed Killer contributed to this report.

    FORT PIERCE — Two people and a dog were rescued from a sinking barge by U.S. Coast Guard crews Tuesday near the Fort Pierce Inlet.
    Coast Guard crews went to the mouth of inlet after 6:30 p.m., said spokesman Petty Officer Jon-Paul Rios.
    Markers have been around the sunken barge to help prevent boaters from hitting it.
    One person was missing and later found by the Coast Guard. The person was taken to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center & Heart Institute in critical condition.

  • New Marker on the Sunken Vessel in Gulfport Mooring Field, Boca Ciega Bay, near GICW Statute Mile 115

    gulfport-bannerSkipper Burnham has been a tremendous help in helping boaters avoid this sunken trawler in the Gulfport mooring field, see, and And again, he has shown true seamanship by attaching a new marker to the wreck. Well Done David! Gulfport is one of the newest SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSORS!

    Yesterday, we attached a yellow DANGER marker to the sunken wreck in Boca Ciega Bay to more clearly mark the hazard. The yellow marker has my name and cell phone number on it in case it goes adrift as the wreck breaks up.

    There is obvious damage clearly visible on the upper part of the wreck where it has been struck by boaters.

  • Proposed Space Launch Sites on Cumberland Island, AICW Statute Mile 695

    This article by Emily Heglund in the Tribune and Georgian does not discuss the impact of the proposed launch sites on the Intracoastal Waterway which parallels the west side of Cumberland Island and, as Skipper Long suggests, the possibility of Waterway closures during each launch seems very real. As shown in the map below, the site of the spaceport would be on the western shore of the Waterway south of St. Andrew Sound. Cumberland Island is a barrier island and noted as one of the most spectacular natural habitats in the Northern Hemisphere. It is hard to see how such a habitat with its wild horses and native wildlife could be preserved with launch corridors at both north and south ends of the Island. If you have further information into this turn of events, let us hear from you.

    Camden spaceport could be ‘turning point’ for Ga.
    by Emily Heglund
    Camden County residents could see the first ever launch from a local spaceport as soon as 2018.

    But that’s only if the community can stay focused on the process of bringing a spaceport to the area, according to county administrator Steve Howard.

    The idea that two years ago seemed outlandish to some is quickly gaining momentum as Howard and other county leaders work toward a purchase agreement with the two landowners who currently hold the proposed 11,000-acre site at the east end of Harrietts Bluff Road. The land has already served as the site of the Thiokol chemical corporation and, most recently, of Bayer CropScience.

    On Tuesday morning, Howard and Georgia Tech professor and space expert Dr. Robert Braun addressed the Camden Roundtable, a non-partisan citizens group dedicated to furthering community discussion and participation.

    Braun said Georgia could leverage the skills of its already-thriving aeronautics industry to aid the setup of a spaceport in Camden.

    This could have terrible impacts on Cumberland Island and result in frequent waterway closures.
    Roger Long

    I believe it would actually be across from Cumberland Island on Floyd Creek near marker A31 N30 56.034 W81 30.643. We passed the abandoned industrial site when we took the inside route. Still the impacts on the island and waterway would be severe as the flightpath would be over both.
    The “protector” of Cumberland Island, Carol Ruckdeschel, who we saw briefly but didn’t get a chance to talk to is a very interesting person known as the “Wildest Woman in America”. Her biography is titled “Untamed”. Her web site is: She is someone you should definitely touch base with if you want to look into this further.
    BTW Floyd Creek is an excellent alternative to getting beat up out in the sound although another mid rising tide only passage for most boats.

    Trade Only Today

    The 13th Annual Savannah (Ga.) Boat Show opens Feb. 27 and will continue through March 1 at the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center on Hutchinson Island.

    The show, now in its 13th year, will have a full house, with hundreds of new boats on display inside the convention center and on land overlooking the Savannah River.

    The show manager, JBM & Associates, also produces the Charleston (S.C.) Boat Show every January and the company reported a record-breaking 2015 show, both in the number of exhibits and attendance.

    “We expect the same in Savannah this year,” JBM & Associates president Jacqui Bomar said in a statement. “This is the perfect place to find the right boat for your family. It’s one-stop shopping with marine insurance and finance companies, accessories, nautical home goods, and even pirate paraphernalia. The show is well known for its excellent education and entertainment.”

    The Savannah show is considered the kickoff of the boating season in the Savannah area.

    A fishing clinic for children has been added to the fishing seminars. Organizers said each child who participates will go home with a free rod and reel. The clinics will be held on Feb. 28 and March 1.

    Organizers said another popular feature on those two days is the Savannah Fishing Expo, featuring experts such as Capt. Jack McGowan, Mike DelVisco and Capt. Don Dingman of Hook the Future.

    A Coastal Kids Zone is a new addition to the Feb. 28 and March 1 lineup. It features:

    Ted Kay, of Kangaroo Art, who will create caricatures for the family.
    Marcus “Wizard of Savannah” who will entertain with close-up, walkaround magic and make balloon animals.
    Painted By Lisa, who will create face paintings and glitter tattoos and make pirate puppets as a craft.

    Other features for children include the Virtual Trainer, sponsored by the Tybee Light Sail and Power Squadron; children will leave the dock on a 20-foot Boston Whaler.

    The Georgia Department of Natural Resources will host archery demonstrations and a “virtual fishing simulator.”
