  • Advocacy for Anchoring Rights in Florida

    Seven Seas Cruising Association has long been a strong advocate for boaters’ rights. Below are invitations to a Webinar and to Membership in the Association. Please remember that the struggle for anchoring rights is not exclusive to Florida; restrictions in one state will eventually affect other states.

    Hi Larry,
    Seven Seas Cruising Association has been very involved in protecting anchoring rights for all boaters, especially those in Florida. I thought your readers might be interested in the information below.

    Seven Seas Cruising Association (SSCA) has been representing both their members and boaters everywhere at recent Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) hearings about anchoring rights, laws, and regulations in Florida. After several years of even-handed work with landowners and boaters the approach of FWC in the latest hearings is of some concern.

    The “devil is in the details” of course. FWC seems to be under a great deal of pressure to allow local regulation of anchoring in Florida. In particular, stand-off distances from mooring fields, from marine infrastructure (ramps, marinas, and other publicly accessible facilities), and private waterfront property were discussed. In addition, time limits on anchoring were proposed.

    Phil Johnson is chair of SSCA’s Concerned Cruisers Committee. He was named SSCA’s 2014 Member of the Year for his efforts on lobbying on behalf of Cruisers’ Rights. As Chair of the Concerned Cruisers’ Committee, Phil’s tireless advocacy of cruisers’ rights from New England to Florida and beyond has been of great benefit to all boaters. SSCA salutes his thoughtful, professional and successful approach, whether the issue is anchoring rights, over-aggressive marine policing, or mooring field management.

    Whether you reside in Florida, pass through Florida on your boat or are just concerned about boaters rights in general, you’ll be interested in the upcoming Seven Seas U webinar, “A Florida Anchoring Update” presented by Phil Johnson on January 6. Phil will update you on the very latest attempts for local Florida communities to restrict your ability to drop the hook in a safe anchorage. Everyone needs to be informed and involved to ensure our anchoring rights are preserved.

    The webinar will help you understand why this issue is important to all boaters and will let you know just what the Florida FWC plans. You’ll also hear the results of the August-September Anchoring Survey and their implications.
    The webinar is free to SSCA members and just $10 for non-members. Go to www.SevenSeasU.com for more informaiton and to register.

    If you are a Florida resident please let your legislators know how you feel about freedom to anchor. If you are a cruiser, sail or power, your membership in SSCA supports defense of your anchoring rights (among many other things) in Florida and elsewhere. Go to www.ssca.org to find out more.

    Thank you,

  • Editorial: Our Heroes!

    Twice in recent weeks, two of our faithful readers have reported unsafe navigation conditions PRIOR to USCG Marine Safety Broadcasts or Local Notices to Mariners. See http://cruisersnet.net/?p=145996 and http://cruisersnet.net/?p=145983 as reported by David Burnham and Sue Ward, respectively.
    The selfless actions of these two skippers clearly defines the purpose of Salty Southeast Cruisers’ Net: “Cruisers Helping Cruisers!” Taking the time to write to us and to follow up on the unsafe conditions may not be the heroics of an emergency rescue, but one cannot underestimate the value of giving our fellow boaters that peace of mind when entering a new port or anchorage that comes from “local knowledge.” These skippers have demonstrated the very best of navigation traditions to come to the aid of their fellow boaters.
    So, David and Sue, on behalf of all cruisers, we thank you for your efforts and for being ideal role models! We salute you as “Our Heroes!”

  • A Good Visit to Darien, GA, off AICW Statute Mile 651.5

    Darien City Docks lie along the northern banks of the Darien River, hard by the charted 31-foot fixed bridge, in the heart of downtown Darien, which is 7 nautical miles off the AICW via the fully marked Darien River Channel, featuring minimum 14 foot depths. Recent repairs to the docks add to the attractiveness of this lovely river port.

    We just spent a couple days on the town dock in Darien GA. We were greeted by the most friendly dock master David. Darien had been on our list of places to visit for quite some time. We highly recommend this side trip – about 6 miles off the ICW. This town is very boater friendly and the people were welcoming. They have a great coffee shop Blondies, one block from the marina. We also received a complimentary glass of wine one night while visiting the Waterfront Wine & Gourmet, who also had live entertainment and a great wine selection. We are some if the best shrimp we’ve tasted at B&J Seafood. We visited King George Fort and the Rice Plantation. Well worth a visit. A must do!

  • ARGUS Update!!

    This notice of an update of ARGUS by John Hersey is definitely GOOD NEWS for Waterway cruisers. If you are not now a user of ARGUS, give it a try by clicking the ARGUS box at the top of any of our Chartview windows – it is an amazing technology! Keep your fingers crossed that NOAA will wake up and begin to use ARGUS in place of the infamous magenta line.

    Hi Larry,
    Just a note to let you know we just updated the AICW solution set this morning, thanks to about 7 million new soundings since March from a bunch of boats including long time contributors M/V Altair, M/V Chez Nous, Trawler Beach House, Reality Check Sailing, M/V Jackets II, S/V Makai, and M/V Elixir. The update reflects several additional transits between Norfolk and the Keys, new Bahamas cruise ship data, St. John’s River updates from Jacksonville to Sanford, and previously uncharted waters on the west coast of Florida thanks to the adventurous expeditions of Trawler Beach House! The total AICW soundings count that makes up the SSECN ARGUS layer is now up to about 30 million.
    Also FYI, our magenta line proposal is back in NOAA’s hands. We appreciate your continued encouragement and support as we move forward in applying ARGUS data to help update the magenta line!
    Just let me know if you have any questions.
    Thanks,
    John

    Boat U.S.BoatUS continues to be the nation’s leading advocate for boating safety, including the proper and consistent use of life jackets, especially on children.

    Help Save a Child’s Life – Become a Life Jacket Loaner Site

    Deadline to Apply is March 1st

    Largest, Longest Running Nationwide Loaner Program

    ANNAPOLIS, Md., December 8, 2014 – Waterfront businesses, local organizations or government agencies can help themselves, and at the same time, also possibly help save a child’s life. All they have to do is join the nation’s largest Kids’ Life Jacket Loaner Program offered by the non-profit BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water. By becoming one of the Foundation’s new no-cost loaner site locations available for 2015, a local business or group can have positive interaction with the boating public when a jacket is needed for the day or weekend. However, loaner site applications will only be accepted at www.BoatUS.org/life-jacket-loaner until March 1, 2015.

    There is no cost to set up a loaner site and it’s easy to do. “We are looking for hands-on sites that will sign out the life jackets to boaters to help us track their usage,” said BoatUS Foundation Outreach Manager Alanna Keating. “This will help us make sure there are jackets always on hand.” Since the program began in 1997, the Foundation has learned that staffed sites have a higher rate of return for borrowed life jackets, which provide a better community service and continuing opportunities to discuss proper fit. Today, the Foundation supports over 550 sites nationwide that can be found at BoatUS.org/life-jacket-loaner/usamap.asp.

    “We look to build an ongoing relationship with our sites and periodically ask them to check in with us to tell us how it’s going.” added Keating. “For borrowers, there is no cost. We know kids grow fast, and sometimes boaters need a correctly-sized jacket for a younger guest.”

    Three children’s lives have been saved by wearing a borrowed BoatUS Foundation loaner life jacket and it has likely helped many others — each year, jackets are loaned out over 140,000 times. “So, in addition to doing good work for the community, this gives groups or businesses that manage loaner sites a little additional foot traffic,” said Keating.

    The most qualified applicants — based on geographical needs as well as their ability to manage the program — will be selected and notified in spring 2015. They will receive a “life jacket loaner kit” of 12 life jackets in various sizes from infant to adult, a protective container to keep them clean and dry, loaner program signage to display, promotional materials and easy-to-use sign-out sheets to track usage.

    About the BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water:

    The BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water is a national leader promoting safe, clean and responsible boating. Funded primarily by donations from the over half-million members of Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS), it provides innovative educational outreach directly to boaters and anglers with the aim of reducing accidents and fatalities, increasing stewardship of America’s waterways and keeping boating safe for all. A range of boating safety courses – including 33 free state courses – can be found at BoatUS.org/courses.
