  • Good News re Florida Anchoring

    Our thanks to Kim Russo for sharing this good news via AGLCA‘s Forum. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that in the future this law will stand up to the pressure on legislators from wealthy landowners to restrict anchoring.

    Great news! I was just notified by our lobbyist that HB 7043 was approved by the Governor. It is law. As of now, no local municipality or county in the state of Florida may ban, restrict, or otherwise regulate an anchorage in Florida coastal waters. READ MORE!

    Loopers’ interest in this issue and financial contributions helped prevent the enactment of any setbacks that could have resulted in the elimination of any existing anchorages state wide.

    Congratulations to all Loopers, members of MTOA, SSCA, and others who supported this effort, stuck with it, and made your voices heard! You have made a difference to the boating community. Special thanks goes out to Jerry Paul of Capitol Access for his diligent efforts on our behalf. His guidance and hard work made all the difference.

  • Special Report – Bahamas by Greg Allard

    This special report by Greg Allard is typical of the excellent reporting and gorgeous photos our readers have come to expect from Greg’s contribution. And, as always, SSECN is deeply grateful!

    Report from the Bahamas – Grand Bahama: West End & Port Lucaya

    Hurricane Matthew tore through the Bahamas in early October of 2016. When it reached Grand Bahama, it battered the island with sustained winds of 140 mph. This is a report on the current conditions at two of the marinas which are often used by cruisers.  READ MORE!

    1) West End – Old Bahama Bay – West End is one of the key locations for cruisers either entering or leaving the Bahamas. Old Bahama Bay Marina, at West End, was closed for months after the storm, and then re-opened for dockage at $1.00 a foot since the marina was still without power.

    We visited Old Bahama Bay earlier this month (June 12-14, 2017). The marina is now in full operation, and it looks the same as it did before the hurricane. There had been minimal dock damage (all now repaired), thanks to the substantial jetty/sea wall which surrounds the harbor. The main damage had been to the electrical system, since the storm surge had risen about four feet above the level of the fixed docks, destroying all of the power posts and transformers. Those have now been replaced with brand new ones, the repairs to the power supply were completed about two months ago, and power at the docks is solid, at good voltage.

    Generally the resort property at Old Bahama Bay looks excellent. The grounds and buildings are in very good condition, the pool and restaurant are open and there was a lot of activity. Unfortunately, the tiki-bar by the beach at the north side of the property was completely destroyed, as well as a small nearby “shack” which handled diving tours, towels, kayaks, etc. Wisely, the resort rebuilt a temporary tiki bar, which serves drinks and food. Old Bahama Bay has plans to start construction in September on a permanent building at the site, which will include a tiki-bar, dining tables, bathrooms, and other facilities. The Customs/Immigration office at the marina is fully operational.

    The temporary tiki-bar at the beachfront is at the left. The beer was cold and the food good. Eddie’s Gully Wash booth reopened, as did the two local booths run by Miss Anne (a legend at Old Bahama Bay) and Cora, both residents of the West End settlement, which is a small village about two miles east of the resort. That settlement was devastated by the hurricane. We spoke to one resident who – at the height of the storm – had to swim with her family out the back door of her home, toward higher ground.

    Many of the residents of that settlement work at Old Bahama Bay, the only real source of employment in the area. It is worth taking some time to visit the settlement. If you want to help with their recovery efforts, make a donation at the St. Mary Magdalene Episcopal/Anglican church. Then, have some excellent conch salad at Shevo’s Conch Shack which was rebuilt and is right along the waterfront; try one of their specialties – a delicious tropical conch salad.

    The resort property is in fine condition. The pool was clean, with all new poolside furniture.

    Dockage at Old Bahama Bay is not inexpensive at $2.99 a foot. Membership in the Royal Marsh Harbor Yacht Club (RMHYC) entitles you a 20% discount, and allows you to waive the mandatory $20 a day water charge; no discount on holidays.

    If you regularly cruise in the Abacos, you should consider joining the RMHYC, which offers discounts on dockage in many places in the Abacos, and in a few places elsewhere in the Bahamas and in the U.S. (At the Leeward Yacht Club on Green Turtle Cay, the RMHYC card not only gives you a 10% discount on dockage, but also on food and drink at their restaurant.) Here’s the RMHYC link: http://www.rmhyc.com

    Many cruisers find Old Bahama Bay at West End to be perfectly positioned. It’s not just a marina but a resort, so while the dockage charges seem high, you do have access to all of their facilities. We found it a restful stop on our return from three months in the Bahamas.

    2) Grand Bahama Yacht Club at Port Lucaya – About 30 miles east of West End, on the southern coast of Grand Bahama, is Port Lucaya. There are two major marinas there, both owned by the same company. As you enter the harbor through Bell Channel, the Port Lucaya Marina is to port, and the Grand Bahama Yacht Club (GBYC) is to starboard. On our way to the Bahamas, four months ago, we stayed at the Grand Bahama Yacht Club, which was our first stop as we entered the country from the U.S. Contrary to current postings on another web-site, there is no fuel at Port Lucaya Marina, and no Customs/Immigration – both of those operations have been moved months ago to the GBYC. We did not visit the Port Lucaya marina on this trip, but we heard that they had considerable damage – including to the harbormaster’s office which had been completely destroyed.

    Grand Bahama Yacht Club also had damage, but is now in full operation. Some of the slips are unusable, but many are fine, and the repair work continues. The marina will not assign you to any damaged slip.

    The Grand Bahama Yacht Club’s docks can accommodate boats of all sizes. There are many usable undamaged slips; note the two broken pilings between the first two boats.

    This is one of the slips at the marina which is undergoing repair. Apparently a large yacht sought refuge from Matthew at the marina, and was tied to this dock. The hurricane sank the yacht, tearing the concrete dock apart in the process. On the far shore are two other casualties of the storm.

    Both marinas in Port Lucaya list their dockage at $2.20 a foot, but discounts can be had after some polite discussions directly with the marina manager; don’t use the US phone number for any reservations, as they are clueless about any discounts. Instead, call the marina directly. GBYC also offers some good longer term rates. The pool-bar and restaurant at GBYC have not yet reopened, but the marina runs a ferry, on demand, which is a five minute trip over to the Port Lucaya Marina, where there are several restaurants and shopping (and often big crowds, bussed in from cruise ships, to shop there.) We much prefer the peaceful, less frenetic GBYC, with its pleasant grounds and friendly staff. Karen is the congenial manager, Fabian and Aaron the excellent, helpful dockmasters. When we were there, the pool was open, but it needed attention.

    One of the best, highest rated (and expensive) restaurants in the Bahamas, is diagonally across the harbor from the GBYC. We’ve had exceptional meals there. The Flying Fish restaurant has a dinghy dock, and the water shuttle from GBYC will take you there too. Their bar menu, each day at 5:30 out on the patio/dock, is a good value.

    BoatUS Alert: Crime Rings Stealing Boats, Yamaha Outboards, Garmin Electronics

    7 tips to slow down thieves READ MORE!

    ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 21, 2017 – Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) said today crime rings responsible for stealing boats, Yamaha outboard engines, Garmin electronics, and other expensive navigation units along the East Coast’s I-95 corridor have moved across the country. Largely striking boat dealerships and boat-storage facilities, the thieves are getting the attention of a new intelligence working group made up of local, state and federal law enforcement officials as well as certified marine investigators who urge recreational boaters to be vigilant.

    One Virginia marina recently reported six 600-pound engines stolen, with dealerships in upstate New York and Texas hit in similar fashion, according to a June 2 report in Soundings Trade Only Today. Working-group member Daniel Rutherford, claims director for Maritime Program Group, a leading marina and boatyard specialty insurance program company said, “They are professional. They know what they are doing and get in and out quickly leaving very little damage.”

    What can boat owners and boating facilities do to prevent thefts? It’s hard to stop a determined thief, but you can reduce your chances of being targeted. BoatUS offers seven tips:

    Take a look at your boat storage area. Is it lit at night? Does it have motion-operated lighting or audible alarms? How difficult is it to gain entry? Is there one or multiple ways to enter? Does it have an effective, fully operating video-surveillance system? Does the storage facility have signage advising that license plates are being recorded and property is under 24-hour surveillance?
    Slow a thief down. Are helm electronics locked behind a solid instrument cover? Use tamper-resistant fasteners for mounting electronics and outboard locking devices. Using a special nut with an engine-mounting bolt that requires a special key can help.
    Make stealing expensive electronics less appealing by engraving and posting a warning (this goes for the outboard, too). Create and keep at home an engine and electronics inventory list that includes manufacturer and serial number, and take plenty of pictures – including the boat.
    Be wary of suspicious questions. In most of the boat dealership theft cases, a suspect posed as a boat shopper on the day before the theft occurred. For boat owners, loose lips sink ships. Boaters should remain cautious to questions from strangers wanting to know more about access. Get to know your dockside neighbors so you can more readily recognize suspicious activity and people who don’t belong.
    Consider adding a boat tracking device that can sound an early alarm if something’s amiss.
    Yamaha outboard engine owners may want to investigate Yamaha Customer Outboard Protection, or Y-COP. Y-COP is available with the manufacturer’s Command Link (CL) and Command Link Plus (CLP) systems.
    Help get the word out. If you are a victim of theft, ask your local law enforcement to share the information on the National Crime Information Center (NCIC), a computerized database of documented criminal-justice information available to virtually every law-enforcement agency in the U.S. or add to state crime-tracking databases.
