  • Good Review of Crystal Cove Marina, St. Johns River, north of Palatka

    Our thanks to Skipper Reeves for this thorough review of Crystal Cove Marina which lies on the western banks of the St. Johns River with a well marked entrance channel.

    Laid back with Southern hospitality. Don the dockmaster could not be more helpful. The crew is very nice Jerry and Billy handled the lines and met us late Sunday. We stayed the week, very quiet. There is a pool we did not try due to the weather. Restrooms showers, etc all here. Old docks but safe. Easy approach with 5-6 ft depths. Very little current or tide. The electrical was good and the wifi worked for us to watch movies. Rental car from enterprise. Gas on site. Diesel by truck. Town is a few miles to shopping center. $5.00 a ft is quoted price for a month. Pets welcome. Lots of liveaboards. The 45 slips were full when we got there. They rent pontoon boats and the boat ramp is used by fishermen. One restaurant at hotel was closed for renovation, A Grill Cafe is open, Hotel onsite with laundry. The grounds are kept up clean. We will be back!

  • New Buoy for Divers

    As described by Sue Cocking in the article below from the Miami Herald, a new buoy is now available to be used in lieu of the traditional diver down red flag. Keep a watch for these new buoys and do not approach.

    A new safety device for divers, boaters

    As a 31-year veteran officer with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and its predecessor agency the Florida Marine Patrol, Dave Bingham has handled more than his share of cases of boats striking divers.

    During recent lobster miniseasons, Bingham has stepped up enforcement of laws requiring boaters to stay away from divers and divers to display the standard diver-down flag (red with a diagonal white stripe) while in the water.

    But the accidents continue, such as last summer’s well-publicized case of lobster diver Adrian Winchell, who was injured by a hit-and-run boater off Hollywood despite displaying the required flag.

  • More on Groundings at AICW/Browns Inlet intersection, Statute Mile 237

    With the reported groundings and marker confusion at this intersection (http://cruisersnet.net/?p=144468), it is definitely wise to follow the advice given below by Skipper Brass: “pay close attention to the charts and keep a watchful eye out for the markers – particularly the floating ones – instead of following the Magenta Line in this stretch of the ICW”  -  just as SSECN has advised by many months!

    From a January 19 Navigation Alert:

    On Saturday January 17, we experienced a hard grounding with bent shafts (2) and destroyed props (2) at this location. Knew about previous reports but marks were not where the deep water was. Strong current must have moved them. We are now on the hard waiting for shafts and props.
    Shame that this continuing problem is not addressed Our current bill is $26,000 to be removed back from the bar, and about $80,000 for shaft abd prop repairs! Navigation marks are not maintained!
    Douglas Jemal

    Just happens that I may have been the next boat to pass the location of this grounding. At 10:20 AM on 17 January, I was delivering a boat to Charleston and came up on a large powerboat stopped in the middle of the ICW at 34-35.847N, 077-14.568W. The stopped boat had passed us a few miles further North, headed southbound at around 20 knots.
    As I approached the spot, SeaTow came up and began setting up to unground the boat. It seemed to me that the boat had been on course directly from R60 to G63, which are the prominent daymarks before and after the inlet, and from the appearance of things the boat had been traveling pretty fast.
    This is a traditional problem area in the ICW, and both my Active Captain software and the Garmin plotter on the boat I was delivering sounded alarms for the hazard.
    Floating marks G61A and R62 were both in the location shown on my chart software, which is well over to the north side of the waterway (Starboard if you are heading south) and only about 75-100 feet from the shore. Made me quite nervous as we went by, but we saw 8 to 9 feet of depth in the channel at about an hour before local low tide.
    Object lesson is: pay close attention to the charts and keep a watchful eye out for the markers – particularly the floating ones – instead of following the Magenta Line in this stretch of the ICW.

  • 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 2/28

    On Thursday, the inlet was opened to smaller vessels with a 6-foot draft, but a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers official said Friday the contractor working on the project might have to bring a boat from Mobile, Alabama, to hoist up the barge wreckage.

    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.
