Once again, Bob and Ann Sherer, authors of 2017 ICW Cruising Guide and their popular blog, http://fleetwing.blogspot.com/, generously share their research with our readers. This is an excellent listing of information sites pertaining to the Intracoastal. Definitely a posting to save!
I compiled a set of links in north to south order: READ MORE!
And this from Buddy DeRyder, a friend of the Sherers:
You may want to consider adding the York Spit buoy
As it is on your rhumb line from Windmill Pt to Hampton and its added value is sea state height/period which you don’t get from the York River rear range station.
It is a fairly new yellow buoy and does not yet show on NOAAs website composite pictorial graphic
We decided to not go south this winter as I didn’t get accomplished what I wanted to get done and ICW (& Keys) conditions are not to my liking as I have been through all that before. On the positive side you don’t have a real worry with wrapping a prop on old hidden roof tarps blown off from previous hurricanes and Ophelia is way offshore! But buoy location is a worry to resolve.
I moved my boat to our new F docks near the public piers and having Don Gulliver doing some AC work this week… he worked on your system a few years back…
Give a shout if you have a need.
