  • Sailor Requests Advice on Off-Shore Leg off Florida East Coast

    If you have experience sailing south against the Gulf Stream from Lake Worth Inlet to Boot Key Harbor in Marathon and can answer Skipper Yeager’s concerns about this c.175 mile trip, please let us hear from you!

    Hello All,
    I’m going to move my 38 ft sailboat from Lake Park, FL to Marathon, FL for the winter, I’m concerned that the Gulf Stream is going to make a very long passage from Lake Worth Inlet to Marathon. Should I cut the trip into several stops, and if so what are the better ports, marinas to use? Or should I just go for it and do it in one long stretch? When I moved my boat from Sarasota I stopped in Marathon and then the passage from Marathon to Lake Worth Inlet in one stretch. But I was going with the Gulf Stream. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated!
    Thanking you in advance for your time and help.
    Vaughan Yeager

  • A New Guide Release and a Commitment to a Worthy Cause

    We are greatly indebted to Captains Susan Landry and Chuck Baier, owners of Beach House Publications, publishers of “The Great Book of Anchorages,” for providing superb, in-depth articles for our readers! This west coast anchorages guide is a welcomed addition to their previous guides.

    A New Guide Release and a Commitment to a Worthy Cause

    Media Information: For immediate release
    Sarasota, Florida – September 1, 2014 — Publishers and long time boaters Chuck Baier and Susan Landry of Beach House Publications announce the release of their fourth guide in The Great Book of Anchorages series, The Gulf Coast, Cape Sable, FL to Mobile, AL, Including the Okeechobee Waterway. This fourth guide has been the most requested to date by fellow boaters. The authors extensive on-the-water travels and research from their trawler Beach House provides the most comprehensive Gulf Coast anchorage guide currently in print. Previous guides in The Great Book of Anchorages series are The Chesapeake Bay, Including the Potomac River, Hampton Roads and Norfolk to The Florida Keys, Including the St. Johns River, and The Bahamas – The Route Most Traveled. Details are available on the website at https://www.tgboa.com/.

    In dedication of this current release, the authors have made a commitment to donate $2.00 from every order placed between August 25, 2014 and September 30, 2014 to one of their favorite charities, The Wounded Warrior Project, http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/. They also challenge other boating publications to offer similar donations. Owner Chuck Baier is himself a veteran from the Vietnam era and understands the need to provide support and additional services to the men and women that sacrifice so much for our country and freedom.
    Beach House Publications and The Great Book of Anchorages series was conceived in August of 2012 on a laptop in the cabin of their Marine Trader trawler, Beach House. All of the guides have been researched, compiled, edited and distributed from their trawler while living aboard and cruising full time. In addition to publishing, the husband and wife team have been freelance writers for over 20 years and have shared their knowledge and experiences in such major boating publications as Cruising World, Bluewater Sailing, Soundings Magazine, Sail Magazine, Southern Boating, Lats and Atts, Marinalife Magazine, Nor’ Easter, Good Old Boat, Living Aboard Magazine and a host of internet sites. The pair often gives presentations to boating organizations such as individual Yacht Clubs, the Marine Trader Owners Association, Americas Great Loop Cruising Association and most currently, TrawlerFest Baltimore 2014.

  • Virginia Cut versus Dismal Swamp Canal

    The “debate” over which route is better has been going on for a very long time. The Dismal Swamp Canal route is almost one of those “either you love or you hate it” as shown in this article from November of 2013: http://cruisersnet.net/?p=128524. Unless you are in a big hurry, SSECN has always preferred the slow, easy pace of the Canal over the Virginia Cut. The Dismal Swamp Canal Welcome Center, A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR!, is located on the east shore of the like-named Canal at Statute Mile 28. Traveling south, the Dismal Swamp Canal route exits the Waterway westward immediately south of the I-64 fixed bridge at statute mile 7.1.

    Hi Larry,
    Well it’s that time of year again and we figure a lot of SSECN readers are thinking, “Virginia Cut or Dismal Swamp?”
    Diana and I are BIG fans of the Dismal Swamp route and for those readers interested here’s a link to a PassageMaker Magazine article we wrote to back it up!

    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3291490/magazine%20articles/PMM0514%20ICW%20Dismal%20Frugal%20Doyle.pdf

    And the Captains Doyle have sent us the excellent, complete section on the Dismal Swamp from their ICW CruiseGuide:

  • On the Water ChartGuides Update: ICW AnchorGuides SECOND EDITION Now Available

    On the Water GuidebooksThe Salty Southeast Cruisers’ Net is honored to have Captains Mark and Diana Doyle, founders and owners of On The Water ChartGuides (http://www.onthewaterchartguides.com/), as strategic partners. Diana and Mark will be providing the Cruisers’ Net with regular article and contributions for the foreseeable future.

    Hi Larry,
    This summer we were thrilled when Practical Sailor magazine, the “Consumer Reports” of all things marine, awarded our CruiseGuide and AnchorGuide series “Best Choice” in two categories: mile-by-mile piloting guides and anchoring guides.
    But we’re even more excited about our newly re-designed second edition of the AnchorGuides and their completely updated content:
    We’ve resurveyed over 30% of the anchorages and revised about 20% of our depth-annotated tracks.
    The screenshots are all new and brighter, sharper, and more legible with NOAA’s recent 400 DPI chart enhancement.
    We’ve made the tracks, depth annotations, and anchorage bullseyes bolder, so you can more easily see the safe way in and out of each anchorage, with the depths marked every 60 or 120 feet.
    We’ve added a color visual index to give you the big picture, as well as color footers for quick state-by-state reference.
    And NOAA chart numbers are now included alongside each anchorage screenshot.
    We really appreciate everyone’s input. Please keep those suggestions coming!
    The digital editions (iPad or Mac) have just been approved by Apple and are available now at the iBooks Store℠ for $3.99.
    The print editions are at the printer and will be available soon, still at the non-profit price of $9.95. Printed AnchorGuides will ship in about 2-3 weeks, in the order received. You can pre-order through our website at:

    www.onthewaterchartguides.org/icw-anchorguides/

    Mark and I are transiting the ICW northbound right now, heading the wrong way for the season … but the right way to the Chesapeake Bay for the boat shows and gatherings.
    We hope to see many of you at the fall events!
    Diana

  • IMPORTANT! Pre-Public Meetings Survey of Anchoring Rights

    Pursuant to the upcoming public meetings (http://cruisersnet.net/?p=143945) on anchoring rights and regulations in Vero Beach and Bradenton, FL, Mike Ahart of Waterway Guide sends our readers this Seven Seas Cruising Association survey. Please open the survey link and submit your opinions. It is critical that cruisers have a voice in these discussions, especially since so many of you are in northern waters during September.
    For well written and well thought out arguments from a landowner and boat owner, see Michael Bodin’s comments at http://cruisersnet.net/?p=143720

    The Seven Seas Cruising Association (SSCA) has created an online survey to gather thoughts and opinions on Florida anchoring rights and the process being undertaken to propose draft legislation to allow municipalities to restrict anchoring in the state public waters within their geographical boundaries. You do NOT need to be an SSCA member to take the survey, it doesn’t ask for your email address, and it takes only about 10 minutes. Here’s the link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SSCAANCHORING2014

    SSCA will be representing their membership and boaters in general at the upcoming meetings (Vero Beach, Sep. 3; Bradenton, Sep. 4). It has been working for years with the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), landowners, boaters, and legislators to come up with workable solutions to deal with anchored derelict, abandoned and long-term live-aboard boats without affecting cruising boats. SSCA helped immensely with the current FWC Anchoring & Mooring Pilot Program, and, whether you’re for or against it, excessive anchoring restrictions were mostly avoided by going through a thoughtful process, in my opinion. It could have been a lot worse.

    Now, for the “lot worse” – FWC seems to be under pressure from certain municipalities who did not participate in the Pilot Program, but want to restrict anchoring. In the July 2014 meeting, a framework for proposed draft legislation was established and will be further discussed at the upcoming meetings (a public comment period will follow). The proposed concepts for consideration and comment include no-anchoring zone distances from private waterfront property (300′ is noted) and public facilities – mooring fields, boat ramps, marinas, etc… – (150′ is noted), plus conditions that would exclude boats from being stored at anchor. (See http://www.waterwayguide.com/waterway-updates/news/GEN/4185/ALERT-Florida-anchoring-regulations-meetings-announced for details of the proposed concepts, plus more information about the two meetings in September.)

    If you are a Florida resident, please also let your legislators know how you feel about your freedom to anchor. If you are a cruiser anywhere and have not already, consider joining SSCA – it not only helps defend anchoring rights in Florida and practically everywhere else, it is a great gathering of local, coastal and world-wide cruisers with a lot of resources and events. But either way, please take the survey. Here’s the link again: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SSCAANCHORING2014

    Happy cruising!
