    Although Hurricane Matthew hit Grand Bahama with a wallop, Old Bahama Bay Marina is able to accommodate traveling yachts. Electricity at the slips is not yet restored, but there is fuel, water, an excellent restaurant, and dockage at the reduced rate of $1/ft.

  • Update for the Dismal Swamp Canal, 1/19/2017, AICW Alternate Route

    Set in beautiful Camden Count, NC, the Dismal Swamp Canal Welcome Center provides free dockage for cruisers' on the Dismal Swamp AICW Alternate Route

    Photos and Update for the Dismal Swamp Canal Read More

    The ACOE continues to debris the Canal. These photos were taken today, about one mile from the Dismal Swamp Welcome Center (Right across from the Camden Eco-Park). They are getting closer to us! Another Corps District will assist in February with a complete survey of the entire Canal, moving forward a year ahead of the normal five year schedule. A survey at the mouth of the Feeder Ditch was done before the end of the year and determined severe shoaling at this location. The Deep Creek Lock River Gate removal and renovation project was budgeted and began about a week ago, and I hope to have pictures soon. The Corps is continuing to pursue funding to assist with their efforts to reopen the Canal.
    Camden/Pasquotank Emergency Management Coordinator, Christy Saunders has also coordinated a Flood Meeting at the end of the month with stake holders, to discuss this historic storm and its damages, regarding our local communities.
    We hope to give you more positive news in the future. There is action.

  • Florida’s Anchoring Program Update MTOA

    Our thanks to Mike Bodin of Marine Trawler Owners Association for this updated perspective on Florida’s anchoring restrictions. See Florida Wildlife and Fish Commission Proposed Anchoring Program. See link below to donate to these lobbying efforts.

    Florida’s Anchoring Program Update MTOA Read More

    Many wealthy Florida waterside residents, condominium units and cities complained to their local governments about anchoring boats spoiling their water views. Federal government owns the land under waterways and relinquished control to Florida state. This anti anchoring consortium contacted their state representatives to change the law to prohibit anchoring in front of their waterside property.
    Florida enacted a study called Anchoring and Mooring Pilot Program in 2009. The study is to be completed July 1, 2017. Final recommendations to be submitted by January 1, 2018. The multi-million dollar 244-page report is available for review. “Anchoring and Mooring Pilot Program Final Report of Findings and Recommendations 12/21/2016” in Adobe PDF. During last year’s legislative season the report was accepted as submitted. 2017 is the final year. Florida legislature has stated they will accept the state recommendations for state law. The report has several anti-anchoring provisions that must be changed to better represent the needs of the boating community. One glaring item of concern; If enacted, county governments can easily contact the state for an exemption to control anchoring without any input from the boating community. If granted, the county has state authorization to enact laws preventing anchoring as well as dinghy docking. The unintended consequence of the legislation would be the precedent it would set for other states along the eastern seaboard to follow banning anchoring.
    A large “AHOY MATE” call is now being made to fellow boaters. As a boating community, we can be complacent, stand back and complain when our previously used anchoring areas are no longer available or put on some heavy weather gear and ride the storm out while still keeping the heading. This will ensure anchorage availability for us and future availability for our children. How is this accomplished? As any boater knows you must have the right gear. 1) We need a knowledgeable professional lobbyist. 2) Money is required for this lobbyist: $35k-$50k. 3) How do we get the funds? The boating community unites and individual boaters donate as they can. Today combined funds from members of American Great Loop Cruising Association and Marine Trawler Owners Association, are starting the donations for a pro-anchoring lobbyist. Additional funds are required to continue a pro- anchoring strategy to roll back anti-anchoring language in the proposed bill. Your support is requested. Marine Trawlers Owners Association has set up the following site for your donations: Go to, highlight tab “FL Anchoring Rights Fund”
    We need your financial support. The following is a time progression review demonstrating the need for a professional lobbyists and active boaters to win the pro-anchoring debate.
    Most all bills for the 2017 Session are still in the Bill Drafting Office where they are not visible to the public (until they are filed).
    The Anchoring Bill is expected to be brought to floor early due to last year’s defeat. They don’t think the pro-anchoring community will have the necessary time to collect funds and organize credible support. Anti-anchoring faction has strength through numbers and is bringing momentum from last year to this year’s activity. They are counting on the lack of any pro-anchoring support for 2017 as was last year.
    Next Committee Week starts Monday Jan 23. Committees will begin meeting again then bills will continue to appear through start of session – March 7. Amendments to bills can be filed at any time.
    2016 REVIEW
    Yeas, represent the Anti- Anchoring votes by the committees and legislature:
    1/26/16 House Committee Vote yeas 12 Nays 0
    2/25/16 House Committee Vote yeas 15 Nays 1 Note: Extreme spread
    3/04/16 House Vote yeas 105 Nays 12
    3/0716 Senate Vote yeas 36 Nays 2
    3/09/16 Signed by officers and presented to Governor HJ 980
    3/24/16 Approved by Florida Governor (chapter 2016-96)
    7/01/16 Effective Date for law banning anchoring by county designation.
    Once it was seen there was no opposition from pro- anchoring groups, anti-anchoring legislation emerged and gathered enough momentum to easily pass. Do not underestimate the extent to which that momentum is perceived to still exist in Tallahassee. It was quite evident at the Senate Environment Committee (the Committee that originated the bill we defeated 2 years ago). Notice that this Committee chose to place the topic on its agenda early in the process. The cruising/anchoring interests have been unrepresented for a while and that has been noticed.
    Note: The boating community was complacent. No lobbyists, No backing of the boating community
    2015 REVIEW
    No set back or anchoring restrictions—Active Lobbyists, Active boating community
    2014-2012 REVIEW
    No set back or anchoring restrictions—Active Lobbyists, Active boating community
    It can plainly be observed if boaters are again complacent in 2017, the 2016 results can be expected. We salute such groups as American Great Loop Cruising Association, Seven Seas Cruising Association and Marine Trawler Owners Association for their active and financial support. These great organizations have started the process. Now your financial support is needed to continue.
