  • UPDATE: Search for Missing Teens Continues, off Jupiter Inlet, near AICW Statute Mile 1005

    The missing teen fishermen began their trip out of Jupiter Inlet on the east Florida coast.

    Update: 7/29/15: Still no signs of missing teen boaters off Florida’s Gulf coast
    By Tamara Lush The Associated Press
    Scouring the vast ocean expanse off Florida for two missing teen boaters is a long, tedious mission for the eight-person crew of the C-130 Hercules Coast Guard plane based out of Clearwater.
    On Tuesday morning, the flight crew – including a public affairs officer and an Associated Press reporter – left Florida’s Gulf coast at midmorning and flew eastward.
    Once the plane cleared the state’s other coast and was over the Atlantic, it dropped to 500 feet (150 metres) above the murky ocean. The crew eased open the back cargo ramp and two men flopped on their bellies so they could search the sea below.

    CLICK HERE for the full article from Global News.

    UPDATE: 7/27: TEQUESTA, Fla. (AP) — The Coast Guard says a boat belonging to two missing 14-year-old fishermen has been found off Florida’s Atlantic coast but neither boy was in or around the boat.
    Petty Officer Steve Lehmann says the boat was found Sunday about 67 miles off Ponce de Leon Inlet in Volusia County.

    According to the South Florida Sun Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1S58rYd) Carly Black, the mother of Austin Stephanos said, ”We are going to find them today. We are going to bring them home.”

    Perry Cohen and Austin Stephanos were last seen Friday in the Jupiter area buying fuel for their 19-foot boat.

    Lehmann says the boat was found capsized.
    UPDATE: Coast Guard continues search for missing teens

    Update, 8:50 p.m. 7/26: The Coast Guard plans to continue the search for the missing teens after finding their capsized boat.

    Crews will use a Coast Guard HC-144 Ocean Sentry airplane, MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter and Station Canaveral 45-foot Response Boat to continue the search through the night, officials report.

    Austin Stephanos is one of two teens the Coast Guard continues to search for Saturday morning. He and Perry Cohen set out from the Jupiter Inlet on a fishing trip yesterday.

    Update, 6:20 p.m.: Hundreds of people are gathering for a vigil at Jupiter Christian School for two teens still missing at sea.

    The Coast Guard has told the Palm Beach Post the capsized boat was initially spotted by a C-130 aircraft at 11 a.m.

    The Coast Guard said the C-130 spotted the overturned vessel at the edge of the search pattern. A helicopter from Air Station Clearwater was dispatched and lowered a rescue swimmer, who was able to confirm the registration numbers of the boat, said Petty Officer Mark Barney.

    Perry Cohen is one of two teens the Coast Guard continues to search for Saturday morning. He and Austin Stephanos set out from Jupiter Inlet on a fishing trip yesterday.

    The Coast Guard searched some 25,000 square miles since Friday afternoon before finding the vessel very far off shore and up the coast, he said. It was unknown in early evening if the boat suffered any structural damage.

    Edenton, NC - the prettiest town in the South!

    Historic Edenton, A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, is an exciting harbor and community of historical events and entertainment venues. Having recently celebrated their Tricentennial, Edenton is 300 Years Young! Come and let them prove it!

    Edenton has been making history for 300 years. Founding fathers and mothers were instrumental in establishing the principles and values upon which our nation was founded while surviving the Revolutionary and Civil Wars.
    edfocus
    Today, visitors will find historic homes and three National Historic Landmarks preserving our heritage for future generations. The states oldest, still in use, Courthouse stands above the village green looking toward Edenton Bay, as it did when built in 1767. Recently awarded the distinction by Forbes.com as “one of America’s Prettiest Towns”, Edenton continues to show her age with pride.

    Edenton served as the first Colonial Capital until 1743. Edenton boasts an active Downtown District surrounded by fine examples of Jacobean, Georgian, Federal, Greek revival, and Victorian homes allowing visitors to see the fabric of America’s architectural styles come alive. Guided walking and trolley tours are provided daily from the Barker House Welcome Center and Historic Edenton State Historic Site.

    More important than buildings are the founding men and women who put Edenton on the map, as they built a state and a nation. Joseph Hewes, signer of the Declaration of Independence and godfather of today’s US Navy – served as edfocus2Colonial Secretary of the Navy. Hugh Williamson, signer of the United States Constitution convinced a skeptical North Carolina to ratify the proposed constitution after first rejecting doing so until the Bill of Rights was included. Samuel Johnston, whose home, Hayes Plantation a private residence today, was North Carolina’s Governor 1787-1789, and was a US Senator in the first sessions of Congress. After the successful battle for independence, Johnston was the first man elected President of the Confederation. He refused the offer due to ill health. Johnston presided at the NC constitution ratification debates and helped Williamson secure its adoption; at the time Johnston was the Governor of NC.

    Penelope Barker, organizer of the Edenton Tea Party, in 1774 proved herself to be one of the most courageous women of all time. The famous Boston Tea Party was staged by men dressed to disguise their identities, not Penelope and her Edenton Ladies; all 51 signed their names and sent their petition to King George saying, NO to his taxes. A century later, writer, activist, abolitionist and educator, Harriet Jacobs, authored the story of her life,

    James Iredell was only 38 years old when George Washington chose him as a Justice in the first US Supreme Court. His home stands a few blocks from the 1767 Courthouse.

  • More on Boca Grande Swing Bridge Schedule, GICW Statute Mile 34.5

    The Boca Grande Swing Bridge (Gasparilla Island Swing Bridge) with a closed vertical clearance of 9ft crosses the GICW at statute mile 34.5 in the northern Gasparilla Sound. The new bridge, currently under construction adjacent to the old bridge, is expected to be completed by the end of August at which time the old swing bridge will be in permanent open position. See http://cruisersnet.net/?p=148775. Our thanks to Skipper Allard for these updates.

    We came through the Boca Grande swing bridge on July 23, 2015. The restricted openings are still in effect. The structural steel beams which will support the deck of the new bridge are in place and they were closed when we came through; the bridge operator said that there was approximately 25 feet of clearance under that new span. That particular span is curved, so there is more clearance on one side of the pass through. I do not know what his clearance figure was based upon. He would have opened that span (in addition to the swing bridge) if necessary, but said that it would have taken some time to have the workers leave the span with their equipment etc. So cruisers are cautioned that depending on what work is being done on that new span, there could be additional delays. The bridge operator was extremely helpful and easy to work with. We came under the new span with several feet to spare; our air draft is 20’6″.
