LNM: Destroyed Daybeacon, Matlacha Pass, San Carlos Bay, Okeechobee Waterway, 12/28/2016


This destroyed Matlacha Pass daybeacon is in northern San Carlos Bay at the western end of the Okeechobee Waterway. It appears from the two Nav Alerts in at this area that both Daybeacon #1 and Daybeacon #8 have been destroyed. Note Gene Fuller’s onsite observation that “there are two temporary marks, green and red, in fairly close proximity.”

    It has been replaced with a temporary Red buoy and marked as “8 WR” . Steer clear of it and don’t get near to it . According , to the markers , I was clearly in the channel by at least 15 feet . However, I ran aground into only 2.8 feet of water . I called the Coast Guard as did Sea Tow . It needs to be moved asap .
