    Coast Guard seeks comment from public for Miami Grand Prix of the Sea

    MIAMI — The Coast Guard seeks public comment on rulemaking for the Miami Grand Prix of the Sea on or before April 2.

    The U.S. Coast Guard announced public comment opened on March 2, which was published in the Federal Register of a Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) to establish a special, local regulation for certain navigable waters of Biscayne Bay in connection with the Miami Grand Prix of the Sea. READ MORE!

    In addition, the Coast Guard will conduct an environmental analysis and review to comply with National Environmental Policy Act and other laws.

    The NPRM seeks to establish two regulated areas, a safety zone and a no-anchoring zone, within certain waters of Biscayne Bay and Miami Marine Stadium basin. The safety zones would ensure the safety of vessels and natural environment before, during and after the scheduled event. The marine event permit is still under consideration.

    The event is scheduled April 21 through April 22, from 8 a.m. to 5p.m., and consist of offshore-style powerboats and personal watercrafts, which will race inside the Miami Marine Stadium basin.

    Approximately 90 participants are scheduled to race in this event.

  • LNM: Bakers Haulover Bridge Rehabilitation, near AICW Statute Mile 1080

    With a vertical clearance of 22ft, Bakers Haulover Inlet Bridge crosses the man-made Bakers Haulover Inlet. This construction work should not affect the nearby Waterway just west of the Inlet.

    FLORIDA – AICW – WEST PALM BEACH TO MIAMI – BISCAYNE BAY: Bakers Haulover Bridge Rehabilitation Project
    Kiewit Construction will begin the Bakers Haulover Bridge Rehabilitation Project early February 2018. Containment will be installed to the bridge and will create obstructions underneath. The project will begin with installation on the south side of the inlet, from land to the main channel. The clearance to be taken by this containment is approximately 2 feet. Only ½ of the main channel will have containment installed at one time. Vessels are directed to observe this obstruction and to use the un-obstructed side with caution when traveling through the channel underneath Bakers Haulover Bridge. Once the south side of the bridge is complete, the contractor will be removed and install on the north side, similar to that as the south. The project is anticapted to be completed in June 2018. For further information contact Kiewit at (954) 835-2228. Chart 11467 LNM 05/18

  • LNM: Emergency Phone Line for Miami Mariners

    Coast Guard establishes Miami area emergency phone line for mariners

    MIAMI — The Coast Guard has established an emergency phone line for mariners in life-threatening situations in preparation for the anticipated loss of marine radio transmissions due to Hurricane Irma.  

    Mariners in need of emergency assistance are urged to contact 911 first.  If 911 service is unavailable, please contact (305) 953-4617 to reach the Coast Guard Sector Miami incident command post.

    It is important to note this number is only for life-threatening maritime emergencies in the south Florida area.  Coast Guard response capabilities may be severely degraded or delayed due to severe weather as Hurricane Irma passes through the area. 

    Mariners are strongly discouraged from requesting life-saving assistance through social media.  Coast Guard access to social media feeds may be severely limited due to the effects of the storm.

    The Coast Guard urges mariners to seek safe shelter at this time, as severe weather is expected to begin impacting the area within the next 24 hours.

    Looking for buddy boat(s) to cruise the Bahamas. John and Judy are sailing a 35 ft Heritage, departing the Miami area the end of June or early July, looking for the company of other boats to join us on the trip.READ MORE!

    We find that sailing with a “buddy” or 2 increases the enjoyment. The cruising area will be the Abacos and Bimini. We are a retired couple and are not licensed boat captains, but John has extensive experience in the Bahamas, but not recently.

  • Report and Excellent Advice from Monumental Island Anchorage, near AICW Statute Mile 987

    Hibiscus Island and Monumental Island anchorage are on the north side of the MacArthur Causeway in northern Biscayne Bay. The anchorage is northeast of Monument Island, accessible from the north and from the Waterway west of the area. Our thanks to Janice Callum, who is replying to Crackdown on Dinghy Landings Access, for this report and for her excellent advice on being good citizens while visiting “foreign waters” lest we be labeled as the “ugly boater.”

    We are anchored off Hibiscus Island in Miami Beach. READ MORE!

    No visits from police or problems with anything! Boats are anchored off Star Island and the Collins Canal, no hassle. Many more derelict looking boats are anchored on the north side of the East Venetian bridge, but they also seem to be left alone. We saw one trawler named Lady J get pulled over by the water police…the officials are especially protective of the sea grass seedlings in this area and the No Wake zone in Maloy Channel, so crawl along those shores! Sunset Lake remains boat free; as well as free of the dinghies that were anchored around to obstruct cruiser’s anchoring. How ’bout if we all just leave that spot alone until the “unwelcome” (caused by the fellow who considers himself a Cuba expert who sails a near derelict red boat) wears off (and do let him know if you see him that none of us Snowbirds have appreciated the mess he’s caused for us down here). The good news, that we have not seen posted anywhere on the www, is that there is a wonderful dinghy dock up the Collins Canal across the street from the boater-friendly Publix….not just a chain, a real dock! But, fellow cruisers, please, PLEASE stop jamming your trash into the waste receptacle on the street by the dock! It’s beyond comprehension that anyone thinks this is an appropriate spot for trash bags; and, you are risking this spot to tie up for all of us! The police docks and park wall under the bridge (on the other side of the canal) are all posted Tow Away Zone or 20 Minute Loading Zone No Mooring. Let’s all be welcome visitors and do something helpful while we are here! Pick up your dog’s waste, keep your stereos down, anchor well off folk’s backyards and go somewhere else if you can’t handle the wakes.
    Best regards, Janice Callum, “Calamus”

    HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – Hollywood condominium owners are blaming live-aboard boaters for a dirty Intracoastal Waterway behind their complex.
    Residents of The Moorings condominiums near North Beach Park in Hollywood told Local 10 News reporter Todd Tongen that the live-aboard boaters are nothing more than squatters on the water.
    Marybeth Cullinan, a Moorings homeowner association member, reported seeing raw sewage dumped in the waterway.

  • Disastrous Relationship with Dinner Key Marina, Biscayne Bay, Miami, AICW Statute Mile 1095

    Dinner Key Marina is located at the western end of Dinner Key Channel on the western shore of Biscayne Bay. For more typical comments on Dinner Key Marina, see /25334.

    If the customer service in most places in Miami is subpar, then the service at Dinner Key Marina is absolute garbage. The kind of service that makes you immediately regret having moved to Miami (and I speak fluent Spanish). The kind of service that forces you to set aside ample time to sit down and write a juicy, one star review just like the one that you are about to read. So you do not mistake this review for one coming from a non-credible source, I should probably mention that I am a USCG licensed Captain (50 ton Master) and a Cambridge engineering graduate with 20 years of boating experience. Also for the record, I have never really written a review before, but this nightmare could not have gone unpublished. Here is the sequence of events:

    1. I signed a one year contract with the marina for a commercial slip in August of 2014. The plan was to run charters to small groups of elite guests aboard my 41-foot Maxum. Having endured a 3-hour long trip down from Fort Lauderdale, my father and I finally pulled into our allocated slip. The very next morning, we were rudely woken by a bunch of goons banging on the fiberglass, asking why we had parked there. They had chained the boat to the seawall. I kindly replied that I had signed a one year contract for that spot. They later unchained the boat and barely made an apology. That is Dinner Key Marina’s idea of a welcome, apparently.
    2. One week following my arrival, I drove up to Orlando for a few days. There, the local police came knocking on my door announcing that they had found a boat registered to my name up on a beach in Fort Pierce (about 125 miles north of Miami). Long story short, a ring of drug smugglers stole my 41 Maxum from Dinner Key Marina. I still wonder if it was not someone from the marina who tipped off my absence. It took 3 months of investigations by the USCG, DEA, and the local Sheriff’s department, and an additional 3 months of quoting repairs before I recouped the money from the insurance company (the boat was declared a total loss). Dinner Key Marina did not help out with anything and did not even express their sympathies for what had happened. I later suggested that they install a camera to monitor that pier (Pier 9) and they really could not have cared less.
    3. I returned to the marina with a new Concept 36. Why do you ask? Because none of the other 30 odd marinas in Miami had availability for commercial vessels. I should also mention that although Dinner Key Marina welcomes commercial vessels, they are not zoned for commercial use. I found that out following a visit to the City Hall trying to get my zoning permit. So technically, everyone there operating commercially is illegal. The operations lady at the Dinner Key Marina, Maria Busto, one of the most impolite, ill-intentioned, dysfunctional individuals I have ever had the displeasure to meet, had promised me following the theft of the 41 Maxum, that she would give me priority on my original slip. Sure enough, when I returned to the marina with the Concept 36, she had given it away to somebody else and left me with a slip amidst a bunch of shrimping boats. Just for the record, all of the frustrating experiences delineated above were delivered almost exclusively by her, Maria Busto. Do not waste even a second of your time with her. Talk directly to Stephen Bogner, the manager, anytime you need assistance. I found this out too late. He is of great character and although he does not have much control over what goes on in his marina, he means well.
    4. My dad fell ill in early 2016 and I was forced to move back to Orlando to tend to him. I terminated my contract with Dinner Key Marina under this premise. My dad just passed away from heart failure at the age of 55. Even knowing about these circumstances, it took Dinner Key Marina nearly 4 months to refund my deposit. E-mails went unanswered almost every time. Every time I called in, no one was around even during business hours. Simply unbelievable.
    5. Summarizing, this was the worst experience I have had with any company in my entire life. I failed to mention the countless times I had to fend off people trying to steal my stuff at the dock (and they did), obnoxious fishermen tossing garbage around and having to pick up after them, birds crapping shrimp guts all over my boat, vandalism, and daily encounters with ill-tempered employees of the marina (with a few exceptions, including Renato, an awesome security guy). Come here at your own peril. This place is a disaster. It will drain you emotionally and ruin your life!
