    We anchor here on return from the Bahamas. There can be a strong side-set leaving and returning to the ICW. Depths are less than charted in the NE corner of the intersection. Use a low level anchor light as condo lighting really obscures a masthead light.

    We anchored just south of marker 9 in the entrance to Faber Cove. It was so peaceful and not too crowded. There were about 5 other boats. We were in 15 ft. of water with good holding. We were a bit concerned about the wastewater treatment plant to the northwest of us but the wind was out of the east so no smells.

    We anchored in Faber Cove due to the East wind protection. About an hour after anchoring the Coast Guard came by and said that we were reported “in distress” we told them no that we had just anchored and were fine. They saw no problem with our position, wished us a good day and left. About an hour after that the Fort Pierce Police boat arrived and said that we could not stay there because we were too close to the channel and if we caused any accidents we would be financially responsible and that if we dinghyed in our dinghy would be stolen and we’d be financially responsible for that too. It was four guns to none, so we moved out further in the bay and anchored in 12′ and no further problem. Florida has passed legislation in 2006 that you can anchor anywhere if you are not a live aboard boat, so what’s up? By the way, Harbour Isle (just off Faber Cove) is running a special dockage at $1.00 per foot with $5.00 per day for electricals. Nice place, floating docks, easy walk to restaurants and stores.

    We anchored at Faber Cove a few years ago and it was so crowded that we’ve never tried it again – anchored south of Causeway Island instead. However, tonight there is a strong east wind so we decided to give the cove a try again. We were pleasantly surprised to find only two boats anchored when we arrived and only two have comes since. Great, well protected spot good depth: 9 ft plus on the east side of the cove.

    Excellent well protected anchorage in 6+ feet.
    Only concern is at low tide there is a “hump” at 12A & 13 that is easly passed over with a minimum of effort.
    It is soft and not a majour concern. I draw 5.5 and have only touchedt twice at extreme low tide.
