Shoaling/Dredging in St. Lucie Inlet, near AICW Statute Mile 987

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 04-09-2014

St. Lucie Inlet – Click for Chartview

Dredging is underway in the St. Lucie Inlet (http://cruisersnet.net/?p=129722) making navigation with shoaling even more challenging. St. Lucie Inlet intersects the Waterway and the eastern genesis of the Okeechobee Waterway near Stuart, FL at AICW Statute Mile 987. The shoaling described below refers to the Inlet channel, not the intersection with the Waterway.

FLORIDA – PALM SHORES TO WEST PALM BEACH – ST LUCIE INLET: Shoaling.
The Coast Guard has received a report of shoaling in the St Lucie Inlet on the green side of the channel between St Lucie Inlet Buoy 5 (LLNR 10125) and St Lucie Inlet Buoy 7 (LLNR 10135). Water depths at 5 feet have been reported. Mariners are advised to transit the area with extreme caution. Chart 11472 LNM:14/14

Harbortown Marina sits on the northern banks of Taylor Creek, which cuts into the Waterway’s western flank, south of unlighted daybeacon #184, just north of the Ft. Pierce Inlet.

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.

Report on Shoaling in St. Lucie River, Okeechobee Waterway, Statute Mile 1, Stuart, FL

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 04-05-2014

St. Lucie Shoaling – Click for Chartview

Skipper Harmon is referring to a stretch of shoaling at the eastern end of the Okeechobee Waterway where we have had a Navigation Alert posted since May of 2013, (see http://cruisersnet.net/?p=113451). Again, our advice, and that of Skipper Harmon, is to ignore the magenta line and follow the markers.

The problem stretch near markers 17 and 17A claimed another boater. I recently completed the Okeechobee Waterway and found the charts make this area very confusing and, the small can marker 17A is hard to see. The charts depict a dredged channel and the magenta line indicates you can pass west of the green marker 17. If you follow this route (magenta line) you will find very shallow water. When I passed the area all east bound traffic was leaving the green markers 17A and 17 to the starboard, west bound to the port. If you are meeting traffic, slowing down will allow everyone to pass 17 safely.

St. Lucie Inlet – Click for Chartview

St. Lucie Inlet intersects the Waterway and the eastern genesis of the Okeechobee Waterway near Stuart, FL at AICW Statute Mile 987. The dredging described below refers to work in the Inlet channel, not the Waterway.

FLORIDA-AICW-PALM SHORES TO WEST PALM BEACH-ST LUCIE INLET: Dredge Operations, (UPDATE: Completion Date).
Cashman Dredging and Marine Contracting Co., LLC will continue dredge operations with Dredge “CAPTAIN AJ FOURNIER” in the channel at St Lucie Inlet and the adjoining impoundment basin to their authorized depths. Material will be loaded into hopper barges and transported approximately 5.5 miles south of the inlet, down the Intracoastal Waterway, to Pecks Lake, where the barge unloader “Bean 20” will be moored. The dredge material will then be pumped onto the beach through a submerged pipeline. The dredging activities will extend approximately 300 feet eastward and approximately 2,300’ westward from the entrance of the jetties. The dredge will be supported by the crew launch/survey vessel “Cape Elizabeth”. All vessels will monitor VHF channels 13, 16, and use 74 as the working channel. The dredge will operate 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Operations will wrap up on or about 01 May 2014. Mariners are urged to transit at their slowest safe speed to minimize wake and proceed with caution after passing arrangements have been made.

Good Review of Loggerhead Club Marina, Vero Beach, AICW Statute Mile 948.5

Loggerhead Club Marina – Click for Chartview

Loggerhead Club Marina lies west and a bit south of the AICW’s marker #122 in Vero Beach, FL. Our thanks to Skipper Mo for this thorough report!

Greetings,
I have a report on the Vero Loggerhead. We are in the “Loggerhead Club” for a month and Vero was a spotless very well run marina. Steve, the Dockmaster/Manager runs a super marina. Publix and a CVS, Walgreens, Brooklyn Water Bagel, Asian House and a nail salon and barber and hair salon are all an easy 3/4 bike ride. The biking is fantastic in the Great Harbor Development (which is where the marina is located). The pool is immaculate and the boaters lounge and bathrooms are spotless. Great washer dryers at $1.25 a load. Those are the BIG pluses. The only drawbacks – to get to restaurants you really need a vehicle. You can bike to the Riverside which is about 4.5 miles away but it’s not a friendly ride – some side walked and a lot not, so you are on a highway. The marina is so nice, many folks wondered why they didn’t have a little tiki bar set up (to overcome the restaurant issue) and a spa. There is room for it for sure. The owners should consider this – it’s not a huge investment and will make it a more fun spot to stay a full season.
Again, spotless, well run marina with a staff that is fantastic! We’ll be back!
Mo s/v Mi Amante

Ice Cream Shop Recommendations in Stuart, FL, Okeechobee Waterway, Statute Mile 5

Stuart Waterfront - Click for Chartview

Stuart Waterfront – Click for Chartview

Ice cream is often the most sought after commodity whenever going ashore, regardless the time of day. When in Stuart, enjoy the recommendations offered by Skipper Susan Landry, co-owner of Beach House Publications, publishers of “The Great Book of Anchorages,” (http://www.tgboa.com)

You won’t have to walk far from the Stuart waterfront to find ice cream. It boasts a Kilwin’s, G&G Gelato and Kelly’s Kones all within a three or four block radius! One’s too crowded, keep going to the next one! We just can’t walk past Kilwin’s without stopping.
Although not technically ice cream, it is a frozen treat and also my other fave dessert – the frozen key lime pie on a stick dipped in dark chocolate. Of course, this had to have originated in Key West. The Blond Giraffe and other key lime pie companies sell this sweet feast for the taste buds. You can find this in the Keys at a number if locations. I had the good fortune to find dipped cheesecake on a stick at a boat show on the Chesapeake last summer. I suggested to the guy he might want to branch out into key lime pie…

Sebastian River Marina and Boat Yard lies on the western side of the Waterway, north of Sebastian Inlet and Vero Beach. Its entry channel cuts to the west, southwest of unlighted daybeacon #55.

I heard boatyard and thought bad things immediately. Yes it is a boat yard but Doug (owner) was a friendly host. We have a 21 foot beam CAT which made turning in the basin a challenge but several people came out to help us tie up. Happy Hour just north of there (5 minute walk) and it was a great visit. Rest rooms were clean and MUCH better than the boat yard I usual go to.

Good News and Many Improvements at Fort Pierce City Marina (Statute Mile 966.5)

Posted by Claiborne Young | Posted on 10-01-2013

Latest NOAA Chart 11472 Showing New Marina Entrance Channel

 Fort Pierce City Marina 1 Avenue A, Ft. Pierce, FL 34950 Toll Free (800) 619-1780 (772) 464-1245 Facsimile (772) 464-2589Fort Pierce City Marina (a SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR) has been undergoing a massive improvement project for many months now. In an interview conducted by the Salty Southeast Cruisers’ Net with our good friend, and Fort Pierce City Harbormaster, Captain Dean Kubitschek, on 10/1/13, we learned this undertaking is almost finished. While there are still a few “punch list” tasks to perform, the many construction barges and cranes have largely departed the scene, and all will be gone, and the artificial island building project fully complete, within a week.
Among many other improvements, a series of artificial barrier islands have been constructed east of the marina dockage complex (see photo below). These isles will act as a wave break during foul weather, and will be a huge improvement over the old, open to wind and wave, arrangement.
Next, the Fort Pierce entrance channel has now been dredged to a minimum MLW depth of 7.5 feet, with typical MLW soundings of 8.75 feet. That’s really GOOD news for skippers who pilot vessels drawing 6 to 6 1/2 feet. And, the channel is now newly marked and FINALLY correctly charted, providing much easier access to this first-class facility!
Throughout this entire renovation project, transient wet slip space has been available, and THAT IS STILL VERY MUCH THE CASE! Fort Pierce City Marina is looking to welcome a host of visiting cruisers as the fall, 2013 transient season progresses!

New Fort Pierce City Marina Barrier Islands

Two other improvements well worth noting are upgraded Wi-Fi internet access throughout the harbor, and seriously upgraded men’s bathrooms, complete with NEW, climate controlled showers. The women’s facilities, which were in much better shape originally, will be improved within the next several months!
Next up, construction of new floating docks will begin in February, 2014, with construction being complete in approximately 14 months.This will allow Fort Pierce City Marina to accommodate any size vessel.
About the only less than positive news is that the marina’s fuel tanks are in the process of being replaced, and neither gasoline nor diesel fuel is currently available. This situation will be resolved within the next six weeks, and skippers can once again fill their hungry tanks at the Fort Pierce City Marina fuel dock.

The renovations and improvements at Fort Pierce City Marina are a clear case of the best just getting better. Going back to the days when I wrote my paper, “Cruising Guide to Eastern Florida,” we have noted time and time again that never will you find a better managed municipal marina that the Fort Pierce operation.
May we be so bold as to strongly suggest that all cruisers heading south for this fall and winter cruising season give their highest priority to a Fort Pierce City Marina visit! You won’t be sorry!

Dredging Project Slated For Fort Pierce Inlet and Harbor (Statute Mile 966.5)

Posted by Claiborne Young | Posted on 08-28-2013

 Fort Pierce City Marina 1 Avenue A, Ft. Pierce, FL 34950 Toll Free (800) 619-1780 (772) 464-1245 Facsimile (772) 464-2589 The article below is reprinted from DredgingToday.com (http://www.dredgingtoday.com), a new resource we are consistently making use of here at the SSECN. While there is a lot of commercial and international dredging news that is not applicable to our waters, you will also find some important data for the Southeastern USA.
With the news in this particular article, looks like depths for the Fort Pierce Inlet and Harbor are going to be improved even further. That’s particularly good when it comes time to visit SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, Fort Pierce City Marina, one of the finest municipal facilities we have ever seen!

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, has announced a plan for the Fort Pierce Harbor dredging program.
This deepening contract consists of maintenance dredging in the Fort Pierce Harbor turning basin and isolated shoals in the entrance channel.
A portion of the entrance channel will be excavated to a depth of 30 feet plus 2 feet of allowable over-depth.
The estimated value of this project is between $1 mln and $5 mln, and the proposals will be due on 5 September 2013.
