  • Post-Matthew Marina Reports

    SSECN will keep this posting updated as we receive reports from marinas. Marinas are listed in rough geographic north to south order. Info on bridges and locks will be posted separately. Our thoughts are with all of you traveling on the water and those communities affected by Matthew.


    Atlantic Yacht Basin – Mile 12
    We’re drying out the shops and store but back to business as usual. Dockmasters are here around the clock if any assistance is needed by the boaters travelling. The water has receded so we’re no longer in danger of high water.
    I hope you’re safe and no trouble was encountered with Matthew. It caught us all by surprise because we thought the low pressure system was going to push the storm away from us but the front was delayed…
    Best regards,

    Manteo Marina, NC – Fully operational – Pamlico Sound

    Pirates Cove Marina – Pamilco Sound
    10/16 I was just advised that the fuel pumps at Pirates Cove went down. Closest fuel will be in Sanchez’s or Coinjock in the interim. Will advise when PC has fuel working….All best…George
    Pirates Cove Marina also just before the Baum bridge also took damage to docks…but they are back in business and a good place to fuel up if you’re headed south.

    Shallowbag Marina – Pamlico Sound
    Suggest calling them since they took heavy dock damage and may have limited availability for dockage and fuel.

    New Bern Grand Marina – Neuse/Trent River

    River Dunes Marina – Neuse River, Mile 173.5
    Happy to report no damage at all to the marina or Harbor Club. We are fully functional and welcoming transient boaters with full power, wi-fi, hot showers and weeknight family style dining in the Harbor Club. Just off MM173.

    McCotters Marina, NC – Pamlico River
    Fully operational

    Morehead City Yacht Basin – Mile 203
    Blue skies are back and fall is upon us! The marina is fully operational and so are the many local restaurants, stores and attractions.
    As we open back up after our evaluation for Hurricane Matthew, we wanted to remind everyone of our Winter Special. Stay at least three months from November to March and pay $10/ft per month. We are filling up fast so make your reservations now! 252-726-6862

    Bennett Brothers Yachts and Cape Fear Marina – Cape Fear River
    Just wanted you to know, BBY and the Cape Fear Marina did great after the visit by Hurricane Matthew! We are extremely fortunate to be in such a protected location for folks seeking refuge from a storm. We hauled a ton of boats and every slip was filled in the marina which kept us busy up until Friday afternoon. At the last minute, we had to cancel our participation at the Annapolis Sailboat Show. I could not leave the yard nor could I ask any employee to leave their homes to go to the show. It would have been our 30th year at the show and I was really looking forward to it but I would have been a wreck wondering what was happening to the yard!
    How did you do?

    Southport Marina – Mile 309
    Hank might have already responded to you, but we are in good shape, just trying to get these boats back out in the water from storage during the Hurricane. We escaped with minimal damage. Back up and running already getting calls for transient reservations.

    Dataw Island Marina, SC – Mile 521.5
    Rick said all floating docks destroyed. No fuel and no transients until further notice.
    Just taking care as best possible those current full time customers who make Dataw Island their home port.

    Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina – Mile 471
    I just spoke to Kelly Poe at Charleston Harbor Resort Marina and he said they did have some damages to docks over near the aircraft carrier which will have to be replaced and they have moved boats from there into their other slips. They still have all other necessary services available. They will welcome southbounders this Fall and ask them to do the following:
    If you are under 50 feet you should be okay but call in advance to make sure space available.
    If you are over 50′ call well in advance as space is really limited and you may have to comply with a specific arrival time and departure time.
    Tele: 843-284-7065 Cell: 843-297-2949
    Kelly encourages all to take it very slow and be very watchful and careful and report findings to
    the internet sites like Salty Southeast Cruisers’ Net, Water Way Guide, and Active Captain to help others who may be passing through the same areas later.

    Touched base with St. John’s Yacht Harbor, John’s Island, SC. Spoke to assistant to manager Bill Chamberlain. She said they did loose some of their transient dockage . However, they will have some room during the Fall season on a very limited basis. They do have fuel and electric still available and encourage all to call ahead of time to make sure they will be able to stay.
    They are also offering to help folks anchor off facilities and they will provide shuttle service back to offices if so desired.

  • Question re Height of Fort Walton Beach Bridge, GICW Statute Mile 223

    If you have local knowledge of the air clearance extremes at this bridge, let us hear from you. With a charted clearance of 50ft, but noted as 48ft, Brooks – Fort Walton Beach Bridge – crosses the GICW at Statute Mile 223 – west of the Waterways exodus from Choctawhatchee Bay and unlighted daybeacon #4A.

    What height sailboat can pass under this bridge? Ours is 47.5 feet from the waterline to the top of the mast. Info says if 48 or higher you will not pass under. Is this measured at high or low tide?

  • Bahamas Chatter: West End, Grand Bahama Hurricane Damage

    Following Hurricane Matthew, it is so good to get news from our friends at Explorer Chartbooks – long the standard navigational supplement for enjoyable, informative, and safe cruising through the beautiful Bahamian waters and island visits – and we are delighted that they have survived Matthew. Explorer Chartbooks is A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET PARTNER!

    Bahamas Chatter: West End, Grand Bahama Hurricane Damage
    West End, Grand Bahama Hurricane Damage
    Posted: 22 Oct 2016 09:26 AM PDT

    West End, Grand Bahama Island. The Old Bahama Bay Resort & Yacht Harbour, located at West End, Grand Bahama Island reports minimal damage from Hurricane Matthew and plans to reopen as soon as island power and water is restored. The marina and the adjacent West End Airport have already reopened, and are being used to bring in relief supplies to the resort and adjacent West End Villagers.

    “Old Bahama Bay was fortunate that no major damage was inflicted by wind, rain, and storm surge” said John MacDonald, President of Island Ventures Resort & Club – the company owned by condo-hotel owners that operates the Resort. We’ll very soon be again welcoming resort hotel and marina guests.”

    “The West End Village and the balance of Grand Bahama were not so fortunate, suffering significant structural damage to homes and businesses. Power lines are down nearly everywhere, and families are struggling to cope with this devastation,” said James Culmer, Resort General Manager. Fortunately there were no serious injuries and no fatalities. “We have organized an armada of boats and planes that are ferrying relief supplies daily.” We have also set-up two relief funds for cash donations.”

    “Old Bahama Bay property owners and past guests are responding with high levels of generosity” said Al Ten Broek, Business Manager for the company. “We look forward to that continuing in much the same way it did twelve years ago when Hurricane Francis, Jeanne, and Wilma struck the island.” The Bahamian people are very resilient, are determined to see this through, and once again be host to our many loyal customers.”

    Food rations, water, dry goods, paper goods, dog and cat food, batteries, generators and other relief items can be delivered to three drop-off locations for delivery to the island.

  • High Praise for River Forest Marina, Belhaven, NC, AICW Statute Mile 135.5

    Frank’s high praise for the “new” River Forest Marina echoes other good words we have received for this renovated marina in a popular Waterway community. River Forest Marina is perched on the northeastern shores of Pantego Creek, just northwest of the creek’s breakwater enclosed entrance.

    Been stopping at River Forest for over 37 years. At first in sail boats and now with our Outer Reef 63. Have seen it at it’s best in the 70s and a bit run down in the late 90’s. Now with new owners and a huge investment the place is at its best once more. New electric, fuel lines, tanks updated and certified, and even new guest golf carts and a new managing partner Henry Boyd. Henry is super friendly and knows all the history of the town. I highly recommend it as a stop over. New phone # 2529430030.

  • Excellent Discussions on Sojourner’s Permit

    These excellent and informative discussions on Florida’s Sojourner’s Permit are from our good friends on AGLCA’s Forum. Thanks to them all! If you have more to add, let us hear from you!

    The Sojourner’s Permit is a cruiser Florida Vessel Registration and Decal. Read More

    It is an annual registration, that cost $83.75 if you purchase it in a Florida County that does not add a County Tax on top of Florida’s state fee, such as Taylor County (where Steinhatchee is located on the upper Gulf coast). It can be obtained by mail. The boat’s temporary location should be provided initially, along with your regular mailing address. We travel to Florida most years to various locations but never know exactly how long we’ll be there. So, we find it easy to renew annually (on the first listed owner’s birthday). Since ours is a US Coast Guard Documented Vessel this allows us to show a Florida state small decal registration sticker on our window with other permits, such as renewed lock & mooring passes for Canada. No regular state number imprint, registration, or taxes are required. It makes life simple.
    Sandra Kay & Nelson

    Mike writes: “I am not a lawyer, but I slept in the parking lot of a Holiday Express once, I think.”
    Which is exactly what Officer Obie may think of your arguments. We can play both sides of this for months, it’s a fun Looper topic.
    The bottom line is that if you get stopped by Officer Obie on the water, there is a better than even chance (*) he’ll give you some of Florida’s finest parchment with his signature on it. Question is, are you up for a visit from Obie and a possibility of a discussion with a Judge, or do you want to buy the sticker and put it in the window and not need to worry about it.
    Please note that the charge for the permit is based on boat length, it’s not a fixed fee. Sandra posted their charges, mine for a 45′ was ~$120.
    (*) Florida passed a law about random boat stops, now days if you get stopped they most likely have a reason.
    Foster & Susan

    Ben, you are absolutely correct. There is nothing in Florida law called a sojourner’s or temporary permit. Look at the form everybody references. The title is “Application to Register Non-Titled Vessels” Nowhere do you see “sojourner” or “temporary”. Just because some webmaster in Sarasota put the words on that website it doesn’t make it so.
    There is nothing temporary about this registration. When it expires you will get a notice to renew it. Of course if you are out of Florida by then you can just let it expire. I have been renewing mine for 10 years.
    If you need more proof search this website for “sojourn” or any form of it:
    You will get no hits; zero, nada.
    My guess is that some looper made up the term years ago and it has been passed down through the years as looper lore. In some county tax offices they have heard the term used by loopers so many times that they now respond with the correct form instead of saying, “What are you talking about?”
    When you go in the tax office don’t ask for a sojourner’s permit. Say, “I am going to have my boat in Florida more that 90 days and I understand that I need to register it here.” That will work in every county.
    Jim Barrentine

    Jim, when that webmaster is working on behalf of the county tax collector, it probably does matter! Is this the website for Sarasota you’re referring to?
    A quick Google search of “florida sojourner registration” found several other FL county tax assessors using the term. I’m not a lawyer, either, but laws and regulations aren’t the same thing: actual laws are usually pretty concise, but the regulations that flow from them can be quite detailed, since they need to cover so many situations that may arise. For example, Florida law includes a homestead exemption that reduces property taxes and limits their rate of increase for residents who make the state their legal domicile…but what steps one needs to take to get this exemption is left up to each county’s tax assessor. I live in Pinellas county and the hurdle is higher here than some other Florida counties even though it’s the same state! Welcome to Florida!
    Alex Ertz

    Alex is right, a lot of Tax offices know what you are talking about when you ask for a Sojourner Permit. They know about it after years of Loopers coming and asking for it. The people in the tax office in Apalachicola (Franklin County) knew about it and had me in and out (minus $120 ) in minutes.
    When I looked at the law in 2014, it did say Sojourners Permit. Not up to digging around.
    But I am up to my refrain “the purpose of the permit is to not give Officer Obie a reason to pull you over and have a long discussion when you are trying to be on the rising tide to make docktails 5 hours from then.
    Foster & Susan

    For those whose boats are over 30 years old. You can register the boat as an antique for $4.50 a year!
    Mitch & Carole Brodkin

    A while back Paradise Yachts put out this great link. It provides the instruction page and the application form. I high recommend you read the instruction page, and bring it to the Tax Office with you and all of the forms requested. Yes, some offices do not know what you are talking about, but when they see the instruction page they know how to help you. It is very easy. Here is the link.

    Sojourner Permit

    The instructions and form are highlighted near the bottom of the article.
    Happy boating,

    guess we will need to revisit this topic again ~ a few months ago we followed all of the directions and tracked down/ contacted the lady in fernandina beach even though she had moved to another department ~ we were passing through on our way to the bahamas and we weren’t sure how long we would be in florida…what i heard her tell me is that the sojourner’s permit wasn’t done anymore or really worth anything – since all we had to do was leave for a day and go out into international waters and come back>>>> so if anyone can provide a mailing address and instructions for how to do this or if it is really necessary or tested and worked? it would be appreciated. our boat is registered in nc and also uscg documented and owned by a georgia llc with a georgia hailing port. we have plans to be back in florida in december and want to take our time cruising the keys etc. before we head back up the west coast etc. thanks!

  • Coast Guard Rescue West of St. Petersburg, FL

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.— The Coast Guard rescued two boaters Thursday after their boat took on water 12 miles west of Egmont Key.
    Watch standers from Coast Guard Sector St. Petersburg received a mayday call at 6:03 p.m. via VHF-FM marine band radio channel 16. A man stated his 21-foot boat was taking on water due to a 2-foot crack in the hull and was in need of emergency assistance.
