      The sunken tug, reported below, lies well west of the main channel into Key West harbor. With the lighted buoy in place (see below), the wreck should not present as serious a hazard to navigators as would have been true otherwise. However, the Coast Guard has now upgraded the site as a Hazard to Navigation, see /?p=137174. For more on this story go to from

      FLORIDA-KEY WEST HARBOR-KEY WEST MAIN CHANNEL: Temporary Establishment of Lighted BuoyThe following aid has been temporarily established to navigate around the sunken M/V TUG TILLY. A temporary Lighted Buoy with Fl Q R characteristics, 3NM in position 24-31-13.199N/081-49-50.819W (24°31.2198N / 081°49.8468W, 24.52033 / -81.83078) is marking the Tug. Mariners are advised to exercise extreme caution while transiting the area. Charts 11441, 11446, 11447 LNM: 09/14This sad incident is the type of thing that has created the mistaken impression that derelict boats are a huge problem and a large cost for the citizens of Florida, when in reality it is a very few problems like this one. This has nothing to do with legitimate boaters or cruisers going about their activities, so I hope it doesn’t become an excuse for more onerous regulations impacting us.John KettlewelltugClick Here To Open A Chart View Window, for the Location of Sunken Tug
