  • The Bad, then the Good from Hollywood Municipal Marina, AICW Statute Mile 1071.5

    Thank you Skipper Clueless for sending what amounts to a retraction to your earlier report. SSECN is glad to hear of the needed improvements to be made. Hollywood Municipal Marina lies south of AICW marker #40, on the southern shores of North Lake.

    I’ll start by saying, this is beyond “you get what you pay for!” Spend the money, and go somewhere else! When we made the reservation, we were told that they had 50 amp electric. NOT! We pulled in late (at dusk), and there was know one to answer the radio. I had called ahead, and was given our slip assignment. Once in the slip, we discovered that they only had 30 amp. We found the “security” guard that checked us in, and asked about moving to where they had 50 amp service. He laughed and said: “don’t know what to tell ya, except you won’t use much fuel to run your generator!” Since it was dark at this point, we had no choice than to stay in the slip, and run the generator for power. This place is ridiculous! They also would not take cash! LEGAL TENDER!! Had to use a credit card!! Also, had to fill out 3 pages of legal mumbo jumbo! They insisted on a copy of our insurance! All this, and NO POWER! Ugh! Never again.
    Still Clueless

    Happy Ending!

    I would like to add (or subtract) from my previous post:
    Since writing this review, I was contacted by the NEW dock master who explained and addressed each and everyone of my issues. Has also provided a full refund for the stay. This marina is in dire need of several upgrades, and he has assured me that everything addressed will be in the works (if not already) for updating and change. They will immediately start taking cash! I promised, I would return once I have heard of the changes. They are a very inexpensive marina, and in a wonderful location. If you want to give them a try, just ASK about power prior to booking :)

  • Florida Anchoring Rights Flip Flop

    This essay on anchoring and the “apartment yacht” comes from our good friend and longtime cruiser, Dick Mills.

    I read something in the news that made me sit up straight and think, “OMG it’s time to flip flop on the anchoring rights issue.”

    The news item said that entrepreneurs in the Miami-Lauderdale area were buying up old boats, anchoring them, and then renting them out to all comers as a very affordable kind of apartment. Considering the high rents for apartments in those areas, those apartment yachts should be very popular.

    Today, the apartment yacht story is merely an amusement. But then I thought back to the 2004/2005 hurricanes in Florida. Those storms left behind tens of thousands of damaged vessels that the insurance companies were in a hurry to declare totaled. Many could still float fine, and could be bought as salvage for pennies on the dollar.

    I envision the years following the next big Florida hurricane when these apartment yachts by the thousands fill up all available spaces in all our favorite anchorages. (Where would they land their dinghies? The landlord may become wealthy enough to provide a launch service for his tenants.) If that happens, then I expect that it is we boaters who will be leading the charge for legal restrictions on anchoring. If we are smart, we’ll start now before the fact.

    Of all the things I’ve read, one proposal seems to address the anchoring problem while making the least intrusion on cruisers. That is simply restricting the time a vessel can be anchored in one place to one week. Starting now, I am going to begin supporting that proposal.

  • A Report from AICW/Lockwoods Folly Intersection, Statute Mile 321

    The intersection of the ICW and Lockwoods Folly has been a Problem Stretch for years and requires almost annual dredging. Recent reports like this one confirm shoaling here, SSECN stills recommends Mid to high tide for passage through Lockwoods Folly.

    The next day, Tuesday 11/24/15 I approached the intersection of the AICW and the Lockwood Folly Inlet. A southbound tug was attempting to go through, but was too close to G47 and hit the shoal several times, but was able to power its way through. The next boat through was a northbound sailboat that went aground, but after approximately a half hour was able to free itself and get through. The sailboat also was too close to G47. I passed through keeping well to the right of G47 and had 16 Ft of water. After passing G47, I turned to port and headed directly to R48, however the depth dropped down to as low as 4.5 ft. Consequently use caution in this area. It was almost low tide when I went through. I have a Mainship390 Trawler with a 4 ft draft.

  • Another Report from the AICW/Browns Inlet Intersection, Statute Mile 237

    With the reported groundings and marker confusion at this intersection (, it is definitely wise to follow the advice SSECN has been giving for some time: do not follow the Magenta Line in this stretch of the ICW!

    I went through the intersection of the AICW and Brown’s inlet southbound on Monday 11/23/15 at approximately low tide. A sailboat that had gone aground was being assisted by TowBoatUS. I waited until the sailboat was towed off the shoal before attempting our way through following the instructions that were posted by previous boaters. Markers R60 and G61 are in a straight line and look as if they are out of place. G61 is fairly close to shore. However by leaving R60 to starboard and zig zagging around G61 leaving it to port we got through without a problem. I went past G61 by keeping the boat in the center between the shore and G61. There was about 9 ft of water. I have a Mainship390 Trawler with a 4 ft draft.

    New Fuel and Dockage Survey November 25, 2015
    Posted: 26 Nov 2015 04:13 AM PST
    A new survey conducted on November 25th found most fuel prices down. Only two marinas (Sea Spray and Treasure Cay) reported higher diesel prices. The marinas reporting no change in fuel prices since October are believed to be sitting on old inventory. The VAT of 7.5% is included in FUEL PRICES ONLY.

    Here’s a link to the survey on the website:

    If you have purchased fuel recently or stayed at a marina, would you send us information on the prices and whether they include VAT or not.

  • High Praise for Crew at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, Key Largo, FL

    The entrance channel to John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park Marina is found off Hawk Channel, on the east side of Key Largo, at flashing red marker #2 which lies west, northwest of Hawk Channel marker #35 off Mosquito Bank.

    I needed desperately to get to the pump out at the marina. I called ahead and told them I did not have a lot of experience running the 44 ft catamaran I was sailing thru keys with my family. They told me where to find the pump out dock. I asked about the wind and they informed me it was blowing hard onto the dock. Tough conditions. When I got in they had three captains at the dock to lend a hand. After one aborted attempt we docked well and safely in very challenging conditions. I sat and talked with them all about the exit off the dock and got some great advice. Got off safe and well. They are truly a fantastic group.
