Eye Opening Video of the Debate in the Florida Senate Concerning the “Margolis Amendment”

Posted by Claiborne Young | Posted on 04-23-2014

By now, just about everyone who has visited the Salty Southeast Cruisers’ Net within the last 24 hours knows that an effort was mounted in the Florida State Senate yesterday by Senator Margolis from Miami, that would have allowed Broward and Dade counties to pretty much institute any local anchorage regulations they wished. That amendment was withdrawn, BUT there is a new effort TODAY (4/23/14) to attach the same amendment to a Florida House bill. For more on this, please see http://cruisersnet.net/?p=139367.

Courtesy of the Seven Seas Cruising Association’s “Concerned Cruisers Committee” we can present to you a video of the debate which took place in the Florida State Senate Appropriations Committee yesterday. THIS IS VERY REVEALING, particularly when Senator Margolis states that “we certainly don’t want to hear from the public,” or words to that effect.

To make this work, without having to watch the entire 8 hours worth of video, you must follow this procedure.

First, go to:

https://www.flsenate.gov/media/VideoPlayer?EventID=2443575804_2014041245

When the page opens, there will be a video window on the left side of the page. Click the play arrow. Let the video begin, and then hover your pointer near the bottom of the video window. A slide will appear. You will need to keep sliding this slider button to the right, until you reach the 462.30 minute mark. The debate concerning the “Margolis Amendment” is shown between time reference 462.30 and 469.5.

It’s not often that members of the cruising community can actually see their “enemy” in regards to Florida anchoring rights, but this is an exception. We urge all cruisers to take advantage of this opportunity. And, oh yes, PLEASE let us know what you think, by using the “Comment” function below!

Claiborne,
I believe it is also important to recognize Davis Childs (NMMA rep.) and Bonnie Basham (Boat US rep.) both were there and both had cards in to speak if necessary.
R, Phil

I agree totally with Captain Phil’s comment above. Both NMMA and Boat/US have been invaluable and responded at light speed to this “out of the blue” situation! So, THANKS Bonnie Basham and Davis Childs!

HIGH WATER Warning for South Georgia and North Florida ICW

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 04-22-2014

Take Heed! all our tall masted friends! Check carefully those height boards on all the fixed bridges. Thank you Chuck and Susan for sending this notice from Cruisers Forum.

Many rivers and sounds in south Georgia and north Florida are at or near flood stage so bridge clearance may be a problem for tall masts for the next several days.

Anyone Need Railings for a 1970 Vintage Marine Trader?

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 04-22-2014

Hello Claiborne,
I have a bow rail and aft cabin rails for a 1970′s era Marine Trader. Photos are attached. The railings are not bent, crimped or damaged in any way that I can see. I will sell them for any reasonable offer. I don’t want to cut up these railings and send them to the recyclers. That would be waste of something that someone else could use.
If there is any way you can let people know about these railings, I would appreciate it.
Thank you,

A New, High Volume Dredge Arrives at Amelia Island Yacht Basin (Statute Mile 720.5)

Posted by Claiborne Young | Posted on 04-22-2014

Amelia Island Yacht Basin - Marina and Boat Yard - Amelia Island Florida In December of this year, after a personal visit to this facility, we reported that SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, Amelia Island Yacht Basin, was awaiting the arrival of a new, high-volume dredge that would be permanently located here. Amelia Island has always offered superbly sheltered dockage, and full on-site services, including repairs. The rub has been depths both on the canal-like entrance channel and in the dockage basin. Well, all that will begin to change very soon.

New Amelia Island Yacht Basin Dredge

While attending the just completed MTOA Spring Rendezvous in Fernandina Beach, I again made a personal visit to Amelia Island Yacht Basin, and had a most informative conversation with General Manager, Bill Galloway and Office Manager, Kristen Galloway. I was very pleased to learn that the NEW DREDGE HAS JUST ARRIVED! Some piping must still be delivered, but in a few weeks, dredging of the entrance channel will begin.
Bill explained to me that this new dredge can “do in a few hours what took our old dredge a few weeks to accomplish.” While it will take a bit of time to get the entrance channel and harbor to the depth targets set by marina management, once that is accomplished the on-site dredge will only need to do a bit of maintenance dredging from time to time.
Wow, what a wonderful improvement to an already excellent facility. We’ll keep you informed as the dredging operations proceed!

Flagler Memorial Bridge Set To Remain In Open Position For Six Months, AICW Statute Mile 1021

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 04-18-2014

West Palm Beach Bridges – Click for Chartview

Since construction began, Flagler Memorial Bridge in West Palm Beach has been in a state of almost constant change, see http://cruisersnet.net/?p=127999. The locked-in-open-position may seem to be good news for tall vessels, but the added vehicular traffic on the Royal Park Bridge and Southern Boulevard Bridge, just to the south, and their necessarily restricted openings, may actually slow vessel traffic through West Palm Beach; time will tell.

The Coast Guard Bridge Branch in cooperation with the City of Palm Beach and Florida Department of Transportation has approved the following bridge schedules once the Flagler Memorial Bridge being placed in the open position stating May 10, 2014.
Michael Lieberum
Seventh Coast Guard District
Bridge Branch
Chief of Operations Section

FLORIDA – ATLANTIC INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY – PALM SHORES TO WEST PALM BEACH – FLAGLER MEMORIAL BRIDGE: Bridge Construction/Waterway Restriction/Temporary Bridge Regulation Changes/Update.
The Florida Department of Transportation has advised that the Flagler Memorial Bridge will be placed in the open to navigation position for a six month period. Mariners are reminded that the horizontal clearance at the Flagler Memorial Bridge is currently set at 70 feet and will remain until the new bridge is built and this bridge is removed. The current schedule for the Flagler Memorial Bridge will remain in effect until it is placed in an open to navigation position. The Flagler Memorial Bridge will open once an hour on the quarter-hour except that from 8:16 a.m. to 9:14 a.m. and from 4:16 p.m. to 5:14 p.m. the bridge will be allowed to remain closed to navigation with no exemptions except for emergencies.
With the Flagler Memorial Bridge left in the open to navigation position from May 12, 2014 until October 31, 2014, all vehicle traffic will be detoured to the bridges south of this structure.
For this reason, the Royal Park Bridge will be on an hourly schedule at the quarter-hour (open once an hour on the quarter past the hour) from 6:16 a.m. until 8:14 p.m. Monday through Friday, except that from 7:16 a.m. to 9:14 a.m. and from 4:16 p.m. to 6:14 p.m. this bridge will be allowed to remain closed to navigation. At all other time including Federal Holidays this bridge will open on the quarter-hour and three-quarter hour.
The Southern Boulevard Bridge will remain on the twice an hour schedule (top of the hour and bottom of the hour), except that from 7:31 a.m. to 9:29 a.m. and from 4:01 p.m. to 5:59 p.m. this bridge will be allowed to remain closed to navigation.
PCL Construction will be working on the new Flagler Memorial Bridge and will have floating equipment in the vicinity of the Flagler Memorial Bridge. Any and all channel restrictions/closures in support of this new structure will be published in future Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. This bridge construction is anticipated to be completed by September 1, 2016. Ref: LNM 45-12 through 15-14 Chart: 11472

Report from Alligator Creek Anchorage, south of Fernandina, FL, AICW Statute Mile 726

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 04-17-2014

Alligator Creek Anchorage – Click for Chartview

The entrance to Alligator Creek Anchorages lies north-northeast of the ICW’s unlighted daybeacon #36. The two recommended locations are above and below the mouth of Alligator Creek.

I’ve been here on two occasions, the first time during a howling northwest wind of 35 to 40 MPH and ducked in between the sand bar and shore in about 12 feet of water, just up from the cut. The trees did a great job of sheltering me from the wind and waves.
The second time was in March of 2013, the wind was howling from the southeast, and the tide was screaming out. I anchored in the same location and it became real bumpy. Nice place, though.

More Discussion of Longer FEC RR Bridge Closures in Store for South Florida?

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 04-11-2014

Wow, here is a piece of sobering news from our “man on the scene” in Stuart, Florida, Captain Ted Guy. Ted is a maritime attorney and the past president of the Treasure Coast Marine Industries Association, and is unusually knowledgeable about all things nautical when it comes to Eastern Florida and the Okeechobee Waterway. Looks like we may all have more time to wait at railway bridges in Florida, starting in 2015!

Claiborne, my friend,
A local controversy has sprung up in the boating community about FEC adding 16 passenger trains each way each day to about ten or twelve freights each way each day, more than doubling the bridge closure down time per day. It will affect their drawbridges from Cocoa Beach to Miami. The new service starting in 2015 is called “All Aboard Florida”, although I’ve heard they may rename it. Check out www.allaboardflorida.com .
W.E. “Ted” Guy, Jr.

This is going to be a huge problem if it ever comes to completion. Some estimates say the bridge will be closed up to 75% of the time for train crossings.
In addition the bridge is beyond it’s end of life and the RR company (FEC) does not intend to replace it. A breakdown is very likely.

We stayed there after a long day south. The marina is very large, and we were on the face dock. The people were friendly and helpful, and Publix is close. The wifi is not worth trying. I was with tech support which I quit after an hour with no results. I was told there are 4 transmitters and ours was “not well” although the office acknowledged it has never worked well. Overall, I would return.

Florida’s Derelict Vessel Issue Addressed by Legislature

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 04-08-2014

The issue of derelict vessels in Florida’s anchorages has been brewing for years with much discussion as to how to remedy the situation. New bills now before the Florida congress attempt to offer a solution that will remove the offending vessels without imposing on the rights of legitimate cruisers. It will not be an easy task, since the enforcement of any new regulations will been given to local marine law enforcement which, in the past, has not been on the best of terms with the cruising community, especially transients. The excellent article linked below from KeysNews.com by Timothy O’Hara discusses the bills in detail.

http://keysnews.com/node/54451

Laws and regulations already exist that cover this issue thoroughly, but nobody wants to assume the responsibility or pay for the operation to remove the boat. The FWC has developed a detailed and logical set of regulations and procedures for dealing with true derelict vessels. It is not lack of laws, but passing the buck that has caused the real problems. In the Keys the headline grabbing costs have mostly been generated by a few large commercial vessels, like the tugboat that sank recently. Most truly derelict vessels are not insured and in many cases the owners have no assets to seize. I suppose you can now throw them in jail, further costing the taxpayers large sums for years to come.
John Kettlewell

Lets hope that local law enforcement doesn’t consider any and all anchorages on the ICW to be “adjacent to heavily travelled channels”. I believe that , as worded, this leaves too much open to interpretation.
Cambren Davis
