  • Praise for Garrison Bight/Fleming Key Mooring Field, Key West

    The Garrison Bight/Fleming Key mooring field lies along a broad swath of water between Fleming Key and Sigsbee Park, north-northwest of Garrison Bight and is managed by Key West City Marina.

    We spent two winters in Key West at Garrison Bight mooring field. Wonderful spot. One mile to Garrison Bight, 2 miles to Key West bight and Rat Key is in the anchorage for doggie walking. Grocery and other shopping within dingy distance. We loved evenings in Key West bight and dog walking from Garrison Bight docks through the lovely ‘Meadows’ neighborhood. Key West is fun on a daily basis. Be sure to use Key West Marine for all your boating needs, and if you have head problems, use the Head Honcho. The Cubanos at KW Marine will hook you up. Great Thai food at Garrison Bight and generally great fun and food are available in short range from the moorings.

  • Praise for Fernandina, FL, AICW Statute Mile 716

    My family has been vacationing in Fernandina for more than 50 years and it gets better every year, as Skipper Pink obviously confirms! And a berth at Fernandina Harbor Marina, A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, puts you right in the heart of the wonderful things to do and see in this special port.

    We never go there without eating at LuLu’s, nuff said.
    The palace bar, where the ship captains of yesteryear drank, don’t let the bar (front room) fool you, the opening behind the bar that looks like a kitchen opening leads to other rooms and entertainments. 2-3 years ago now I think when we were there last.

  • What’s Next on SB 1548?

    This is an excellent report by Mike Ahart of Waterway Guide on the legislative agenda regarding anchoring restrictions. Click Here for the full report and video.

    Florida anchoring legislation update: What’s next?
    Date Reported: Apr 16, 2015
    Reported By: Mike Ahart, News Editor

    This week was active for those keeping an eye on the Florida Senate and House bills moving through the State legislature in Tallahassee. Over a dozen cruising boaters spent their time, effort, and money to make it to the hearings Tuesday (Apr. 14, 2015), and to voice their concerns about restrictive anchoring legislation. Some of them also attended the hearings last week.

    As anticipated, an amendment to House Bill 7123 (At-Risk Vessels) was proposed the night before the House State Affairs Committee hearing. The original bill does not include any anchoring restrictions for vessels that are neither considered “derelict” or at risk of becoming derelict, but the amendment would have changed the language of the bill to match Senate Bill 1548, which contains anchoring restrictions within 200-feet of residential property and public marine infrastructure. Aligning these bills would make it easier for the upcoming joint session of Congress to enact the law.

    Rep. Holly Raschein, representing the Florida Keys and parts of Miami-Dade County, introduced the bill (and an amendment to change the wording slightly). Rep. George Moraitis from Broward County explained the amendment, citing issues in Fort Lauderdale (Middle River) where anchored boats interfere with waterskiing. He also cited extended stays of vessels.

    Unlike at the Senate hearing last week, the cruising boaters who attended the House State Affairs Committee hearing had time to speak to the members. Each made an original and respectful plea to reject the amendment and pass the bill. Boaters cited the need for protected anchorage space for those who tour the state, the lack of any study that would estimate the impact to boaters and marine businesses if the restrictions were to be put in place, and a concern with ceding the shared use of public waters for the benefit of a few.

    A Committee member characterized the amendment as “unfriendly,” and Rep. Moraitis withdrew it. The safety-related bill passed. Stakeholders pledged to work together to find a better solutions to the issues that the amendment was attempting to address. (Watch video of hearing, starting at minute 47:25.)

    In the afternoon, the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on General Government heard Senate Bill 1548, with the same contingent of boaters in attendance. Eleven bills were on the 2-hour session’s agenda, including contentious legislation related to fracking. Due to time constraints, only two attendees who petitioned the committee to speak were able to. One of the speakers against the bill was a representative of a Sea Scouts chapter, who cited the negative effect that the residential setback provision could have on such youth programs that provide opportunities for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. The other speaker detailed the challenges to finding a suitable anchorage for vessels that travel “the speed of a lawn tractor” and have to consider depths, shoals, hazards, wind direction and current.

    Statements and questions from the committee echoed the concerns of the speakers. Senator Charlie Dean, who introduced the bill, stated in the closing that he did all that he could to accommodate cruising boaters, citing the exceptions for vessels requiring “safe harbor” or that need to anchor the night due to exhaustion.

    Despite the plea from boaters and boating organizations, the committee voted favorably for the bill, 6 to 0. (Watch video of hearing – starts at minute 78:08, and a short break is taken for another bill during the hearing.)

    What happens now? The Senate bill 1548, titled “An Act Related to Vessel Safety,” contains some good safety-related provisions, but still contains one that is not related to safety, which would affect overnight anchoring along Florida’s thousands of miles of residential shoreline on navigable waters – present and future. The bill has one not-yet-scheduled committee hearing left before it would be heard by the full Senate. When – or whether – this bill will be heard will be decided with the Chair of the Fiscal Policy Committee, Senator Anitere Flores of Miami (flores.anitere@flsenate.gov).

    As the Chairwoman, Senator Flores’ options are to:

    Decide that the bill is not ready to be heard this session;
    Place the bill the committee agenda for its final hearing; or
    Agree to place it on the committee agenda with conditions (i.e.: the residential setback provision is removed).
    Note from the The Concerned Cruisers’ Committee of Seven Seas Cruising Association (SSCA): “If you email Senator Flores (or any other Congressperson), please remember to be respectful, civil, and leave a clean wake.”

    On the House side, HB 7123 – “An act related to vessels at risk” – which does not include the anchoring ban, will be heard by the full House of Representatives this week. New amendments may still be added.

    Once the full House and full Senate adopt their versions of a bill, the differences would then be reconciled so that a single unified bill can be “engrossed” and sent to the Governor who could sign or veto the bill.

    New groups are starting to voice concern about the setback provisions in SB 1548, and how boaters, businesses and municipalities could be negatively affected. In addition to SSCA, BoatUS, America’s Great Loop Cruisers’ Association (AGLCA), Marine Trawler Owners Association (MTOA), other civic boating groups – and even some marinas – are urging for removal of the residential anchoring restrictions from the Senate bill. Since no studies have been done other than an open survey performed by the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission this past summer, no one knows how many currently available anchorages would be restricted, or how much economic activity, tax revenue, and jobs would be lost due to the provision.

    SSCA and other boating groups are requesting that Florida marinas, restaurants, and marine businesses that rely on cruising boaters contact your state representatives. Marinas and anchorages go hand-in-hand – and touring Florida would become a lot less pleasurable without plenty of both.

  • Fort Pierce Inlet Returns to Normal, off AICW Statute Mile 966

    Our thanks to Captains Baier and Landry for posting this good news on AGLCA’s Forum. See http://cruisersnet.net/?p=147751 for the background story.

    Yay, The Fort Pierce inlet is finally clear of the barge wreckage and back to normal. From cbs12.com…
    Fort Pierce Inlet re-opens
    Story by Thomas Forester CBS12
    FORT PIERCE (CBS12) — The Coast Guard in Miami has confirmed that the Fort Pierce Inlet is now open for all boats. The contractor hired by the Army Corp of Engineers completed recovery of the sunken barge in the inlet
    around 6:30 Monday evening.
    That salvage barge has returned to the Port of Fort Pierce. Today they will start to offload the scrap from the sunken barge and then get ready to return back to New Jersey to their home port.
    It’s been almost two months since restrictions were put in place at the Inlet, after a barge sunk and took the life of one Mariner. Two different contractors used have cost taxpayers $1.2-million.

  • Good Suggestions for Manatee Pocket Anchorages, off the AICW Statute Mile 988

    Manatee Pocket is off the St. Lucie River between the AICW intersection and downtown Stuart, FL. There are two official anchoring areas, one on the waters of the large bay indenting the western banks of Manatee Pocket and another smaller area just to the south. See http://cruisersnet.net/?p=107612 for charts showing the official anchoring areas. And for a webcam shot of Manatee Pocket, see http://cruisersnet.net/?p=124827.

    Gas prices are cheaper the deeper you go into the pocket. Christmas week 2014.
    Great breakfast place whistle stop on the main street (A1A? I don’t recall, ask anyone) short walk from the end of the canal by Manatee Island bar and grill, tiki hut style bar (fun place).
    Twisted Tuna restaurant, great, really great sushi, at the head of the same canal, behind the second anchorage-deeper into the pocket.
    The Grove for your eye opener hole in the wall place.
    Other restaurants we did not have enough time in the pocket.
