  • Good Discussion of Lake Okeechobee Crossing

    We thought you non-Loopers would enjoy this discussion of crossing Lake Okeechobee as recorded on AGLCA’s Forum. Thank you, Loopers, for the advice and warnings!

    Read More!

    Another boat and myself crossed last week. There was an issue with a bridge on the rim route, not sure if still the same but we went the other route. We had no issues. The first lock on the east side of the lake allowed us to pass through at idle speed. Safe travels.

    M/V Livin’ the Dream

    Congraulations, you have started something you will never forget. We went thought from Ft. Meyers to Stuart a week and a half ago. We did not do the Rim Route due to the bridge. We went route 1 across the lake. Depths were fine ACOE was reporting depths in channel of 12.5 feet. The crossing was plesant. Make sure to check winds as lake is a large body of water and can build waves quickly.
    Enjoy the ride!

    M/v “in HIS time”

    We just finished an East -West crossing two days ago and had no problems. Both nights we tied between dolphins near the locks waiting for the locks to open in the morning.
    Easy trip and the lock masters were very helpful.
    Only issue was with a couple of fast cruisers passing us at speed.
    Good luck,

    The current Okeechobee water stage is 12.07 feet providing a depth of 6.01 feet. On April 2 we crossed with a depth of 6.5 feet but found coming out of Clewiston east bound just a little over 5.0 feet. There are a few low spots in the canal west of Clewiston. Our draft is 5.0 feet.
    The Indiantown RR Bridge was being opened and closed manually when we passed April 2 taking about an hour.

    Check the lake depths here before you commit: http://w3.saj.usace.army.mil/h2o/currentLL.shtml.

    Use the cross lake route at this time of year, not the rim route.
    The shallowest water is the 5 mile channel leaving Clewiston, but there are some shoaling problems in the canal between Moore Haven and Clewiston.
    Leaving the Port Mayaca lock, eastbound, you will see a set of commercial dolphins. There is a red/green pair of dashboards there. Honor them. DO NOT cut instead the red.
    There has been some work going on that the Indiantown RR bridge. Check that the bridge is operating (it’s normally open).
    Mind the markers carefully after you leave the St. Lucie Lock eastbound. The St. Lucie River there is very shoal outside the channel.
    Jim Healy

    Quote “Depths were fine ACOE was reporting depths in channel of 12.5 feet.”
    Just a reminder, on Lake Okeechobee if the ACOE reports the water level, eg 12.5 feet.
    It is necessary to subtract six feet to get the water depth, eg 6.5 feet

    Author, Great Loop Navigation Notes

    We also started our Loop from Stuart (actually Port Salerno) but in February of 2014 and went across the OWaterway to Ft Myers, Naples, Key West, and back up to Stuart before continuing north. On the O Waterway we stopped at Indiantown and Clewiston (on Lake O).
    Indiantown is a fun small town and has an interesting marina. A small marina, so call ahead, but a HUGE boat dry storage area. Folks like it because it is relatively inexpensive for dry storage and it is far enough inland to have negligible threat of storm surge.
    We had good weather for crossing the middle of the lake and topped at Clewiston , an interesting collection of rednecks, motorcycles, Key West style Roland Martin Tiki Bar and Grill, and sometimes huge pleasure boats. The dockmaster there is a legend, although I can’t right now recall his name. One comes through what appears to be a lock but is actually a storm gate, and then ties up to the long dock parallel to the relatively narrow channel with boulders on the far side. As we were finishing drinks and our meal at the Tiki Hut, I felt a shadow and presence go by. A boat approximately 100′ long was backing up the channel past our 31′ Camano. I would not have guessed there was sufficient room between our boat and the boulders to fit the width of the vessel (Margaritteville?) However, there obviously was, and the captain was standing on the stern manipulating his joy sticks controlling all his thrusters to bring the ship through the gap and to the dock.
    After stopping at Ft Myers (City Marina), Ft. Myers Beach (marina under the bridge), and Naples (City Dock), the first time we went directly to Key West, about 110 miles. At bit of stretch to get there during daylight that is available in the winter. After finishing our Loop at Ft Myers in January of 2016, we went from Naples down the old ICS to Marco Island, then Everglads City, and Flamngo, before crossing to Marathon. The coastal route has shorter jumps and less challenging for daylight.
    Have a great trip!

    Two days ago I spoke with the lock tender at the Franklin Lock, as the Cruise Club I belong to goes up river through the Franklin Lock monthly.
    I was advised that at this time there is no directive from either the Clewiston or Jacksonville USACE offices on any restricted lock openings.
    It would be prudent, in my opinion that you contact the lock tenders by phone at each end of the Waterway to make sure. Franklin Lock, 239.694.5451.

    Stay well clear of the south side of the canal from Moorehaven eastward, near a site involving a steam shovel (or equivalent) digging rock from the canal edge. The Boat U. S. Team that piled us off of a sandbar (rock pile) said that debris from the construction activity had created (or more generously, “contributed to”) the creation of several such hazards that have helped keep him in business.

  • Relocation of Buoys, Problem Stretch, Matanzas Inlet/AICW Intersection, Statute Mile 793

    Our thanks to Robert Sherer for his update on the Waterway/Matanzas Inlet intersection which was been the site of recent groundings in the past and was dredged in February of this year, resulting in the relocation of the buoys as outlined by Bob’s report.

    The buoy layout has been changed and the depths are now at least 12 MLW all the way through. Read More!

    R82 is a floating buoy and has been moved closer to shore. Going north I aimed at it but moved back into the charted channel until abreast of the buoy before turning, slightly toward shore.

    G81D and G81C have been removed. They are no longer needed (the channel is that wide!) The first green buoy is G81B and it appears to be too far out in the middle but that’s where the new, dredged channel is located.

    G81A and the two reds are still there, just honor them.

    Cable Near Anchor on Great Inagua Chart
    Posted: 14 Apr 2017 01:51 PM PDT
    Thanks to a cruiser for alerting us to the danger of an anchor near a submarine cable on the Great Inagua GI 3 . He reported that he anchored at 20° 58.308’N / 73° 40.840W.

    We have studied several satellite photos of the area near the position of the anchor on Chart GI 3 at the very top of the chart. One of the photos appears to show traces of three possible cable trenches just east of this position. They lead to a track through the brush inland. A search world submarine cables and shows three cables terminating at Matthew Town, Great Inagua. From there the cables run to Mayaguana, Ragged Island, and Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The world cable map is not of a large enough scale to be specific as to the exact position of where the cables land. US NGA charts, used as a reference, don’t show any cables landing on Great Inagua.

    We will immediately remove the anchor from the data base and all future charts and post an update on the Explorer Charts web site.

    Buried cable off Great Inagua
    Posted: 14 Apr 2017 03:52 AM PDT
    Tuesday we were anchored off Matthew Town on Great Inagua near the airport and when we went to raise our anchor we found it caught on a thick cable. I dove on it and found it to be about 3″ so it is probably a communications cable because when we were on shore we noticed a BTC facility near where we were anchored. The cable is not on charts and there is no warning sign visible. When I dove on the anchor when setting it there was no sign of the cable or that we were hooking to it. The cable must be new.
