    • LNM: FEC RR Bridge on Restricted Openings, Feb 16-27, St. Johns River, Jacksonville, FL


      This cantankerous aging railway bridge in the heart of downtown Jacksonville requires constant upkeep and has plagued boaters with its numerous maintenance lockdowns and its closed vertical clearance of 5ft (!!) severely restricting river activities on the popular St. Johns. Our thanks to Jeff Wingfield for this notice.

      FLORIDA – ST JOHNS RIVER – FEC RAILROAD BRIDGE: Temporary Deviation UPDATED
      The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Florida East Coast (FEC) Railroad Bridge across the St. Johns River, mile 24.9, at Jacksonville, FL. The deviation is necessary to accommodate maintenance and repairs on the bridge. This deviation allows the bridge to remain closed to navigation with partial openings at pre-determined times during the maintenance period. This deviation is effective from 7:00 p.m. on February 16, 2019 to 6:30 p.m. on February 27, 2019. This temporary deviation allows the bridge to remain closed to navigation from 7:00 a.m. on February 16, 2018 through 5:59 p.m. on February 27, 2019. The bridge will be allowed to remain in the closed to navigation position with partial openings from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. on February 23, 2019; from 8:45 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. on February 24, 2019; from 9:45 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. on February 25, 2019; from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 4:15 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. on February 26, 2019; from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on February 27, 2019. During these designated time periods, the bridge will provide a partial opening with a vertical clearance of 75 feet at mean high water at the center of the channel. Work will be ongoing for 24 hours a day during this period with a barge and crane in the channel. Mariner are advised to proceed with caution. Ref: LNM 06-19 UPDATED Chart: 11491

      And this further clarification from frequent contributor Perry McDonald:

      Please note that the bridge will be CLOSED to navigation for maintenance from February 16 through February 22.

      The bridge will provide partial openings with a vertical clearance of 75 feet at mean high water at the center of the channel beginning on Saturday, February 23 through Wednesday, February 27, or until maintenance is complete.

      Work will be ongoing for 24 hours a day during this period with a barge and crane in the channel. Mariners are advised to proceed with caution. Please note the following schedule and plan accordingly:

    • Capn Parky Visits the St Johns River, FL AICW Intersection Statute Mile 740


      The St Johns River is a very popular side trip for Waterway cruisers for good reason, especially this time of year. Capn Parky is an experienced cruiser and frequent contributor to Cruisers Net; you can trust his observations. If we can get him to reveal, I will add the name of the best ever marina!

      After 10 years cruising the ICW. I finally decided to explore the St Johns River. It’s absolutely delightful.

      Many sailors believe it to be full of shallows, nasty turns and poor markers. None of this is true. Channel water depth is 7 ft minimum and often much deeper. There are essential things to do which I would happily tell any boater if they contact me at capnparky2017@outlook.com

      I believe I have found the best marina I ever visited. First Class amenities, floating slips. No barnacles (fresh water), spotless showers, Captains Lounge, on site reasonably priced restaurant, super friendly to liveaboards , the ships store even has an ATM machine. Above all – low slip costs. I’ve signed up for a year! 😊

      Hope you are well
      Best Wishes

    • Monroe Harbour Marina Recommended as a Hurricane Hole, St. Johns River, Sanford, FL

      It’s a fascinating cruise of some 140 nautical miles from the St. Johns River’s inlet at Mayport, to the city of Sanford on Lake Monroe. And here, cruisers will discover Monroe Harbour Marina, a long-time, cruiser friendly spot!

      The safest place I can think of is almost anywhere on the St. Johns river. Monroe Harbour marina is one that I like. It is located in Sanford, which is about 20 miles from Orlando.

    • “Upper” or “Lower” St. Johns River Discussion

      This week a reader, Jim Tracey, brought up an interesting topic of discussion: is the upstream portion of the St. Johns River, which flows south to north, properly called Lower St. Johns, due to its southern location or Upper St. Johns, due to being upstream of the mouth in northern Florida?
      If you have cruised or are planning to cruise the St. Johns, and especially if you are a Floridian, we would invite you to weigh in on this “north versus south” topic. Keep it civil please!

        The river does change in look and feel above (south of) Lake George. For us, that is how we draw the line, but truly such a distinction is probably not necessary.

        The St. Johns is a single river with one set of mileposts. It does not have an “Upper” and a “Lower” the way, for example, the Mississippi does. So I don’t know why you need this terminology. Just say “south” and “north” (or “southern” and “northern”), or else say upriver and downriver. Confusion avoided. To say “upper” and “lower” is just going to breed confusion among an audience that has not agreed on that terminology in advance.

          Lower St Johns typically means that area north of the fixed bridge at Palatka which restricts most sailboats. Upper St Johns is the segment from Palatka south to the head of navigation just east of Sanford.

          • Kearney Mason -  July 20, 2018 - 7:38 pm

            I believe upriver and down river should only be used. Less confusing. The Shands bridge at Green Cove Spring has 45′ clearance while the Memorial bridge at Palaka has 65′ clearance.

    • Diesel Fuel Availability on the St. Johns River, off the AICW


      Our thanks to Norman Mason for this survey of available sources of diesel fuel on the St. Johns River upstream of Jacksonville, FL.

      There is no diesel fuel available south [upstream] of Doctor’s Lake Marina on the St. John’s River, including at Monroe Bay Marina in Sanford. Waterway Guide’s 2018 Southern edition shows it available at several places.

      Trout Creek Marina near Palatka is accessible if you can get under a 17 foot fixed bridge. This is the listed height on the NOAA chart, however some resources say the clearance is 14 feet. This marina told us their credit card machine was not working and they would only accept cash.

      We did not check with Mandarin Holiday Marina, but it is just across the river from Doctor’s Lake.

      Georgetown Marina, at the north end of Lake George, told us their diesel system was destroyed by the hurricane. Not sure which one, but no indication it would change.

      St. John’s Marina South, north of Hontoon Island, told us their diesel pump was not working, with no indication it was going to be fixed anytime soon.

      Sanford Boat Works, which is south of Sanford, may have it available, but there was no answer when trying to contact them on a Saturday. Access to this facility is questionable for deeper draft cruising boats, according to several we talked to.

      Anyone cruising the St. John’s should know this, and be sure to fill at Doctor’s Lake Marina, before heading farther south.

        If anyone is planning on going south on the St.John’s river as far as Sanford and will require diesel to return, you can call the Monroe Harbour Marina in Sanford (407) 322-2910 in advance, they will call for a fuel truck to be there at their fuel dock. I was on a 57′ Hatteras last week that filled up for a trip to Panama City. The marina called Gentry’s fuel in Deland the day before and we met the truck at the fuel dock at 9:30 in the morning. Several years ago I was buying diesel from Sanford Boat Works at the east end of Lake Monroe in Sanford, and also at the Georgetown Marina at the north end of Lake George, but I don’t know if either of them is still selling diesel. Also, Pier 44 in Deland used to have diesel but I never bought any from them. It might be worth a phone call if you really would like to cruise the southern part of the St. John’s as you’ll find that from Palatka south is the prettiest part of the river.

      2. glenn -  April 29, 2018 - 9:18 am

        Cruisers Net shows that Sanford Boat Works is still reporting diesel fuel prices as of April 2018. Vessels going up river may want to call them for latest availability.

        Reply to glenn
      3. Bruce Smith -  April 28, 2018 - 6:36 pm

        Renegades, an upscale RV campground and marina is said to have diesel. Renegades is located on the east side if the river south of Welaka and north of Georgetown near Fruitland.

    • The Burnham Log 3/9/18: Palatka to St. Augustine, FL, St Johns River to AICW Statute Mile 770

      Cruisers’ Net is always glad to hear from experienced cruiser David Burnham, a true Cruiser Helping Cruisers and we look forward to the next log page of his current cruise. Be assured that David’s observations and advice can be trusted and passed along to your cruising colleagues. See Closures Ahead for the latest LNM on the FEC RR bridge in Jacksonville.

      I took a sailboat from Palatka, Florida (on the St. Johns River) around through Jacksonville and down to Saint Augustine today. Apart from the FEC railroad bridge problems in downtown Jacksonville, I have a few other items that may interest cruisers.
      In Green Cove Springs, Florida, the public dock has reopened and there is electricity available. However, the telephone contact number at the city office is no longer posted at the dock. I tied up our sailboat overnight and left again in the morning without any contact from the city.
      At the downtown “Jacksonville Landing”, only the downtown shuttle ferry is making a landing as the signs that the “dock is under repair and no docking is permitted” are still in place and there is no sign of any work in progress.
      This will make it a bit difficult for cruisers who arrive to find that the FEC railroad bridge is closed until the 18th of March.
      Heading south from Jacksonville on the AICW, green floating marker #7 is found just after turning south into the AICW from the St Johns River. However, it seems to have floated out of position as it was sighted a little outside, and on the wrong side, of the channel and to the southeast of red markers #6 and #8. Southbound Cruisers should not try to leave green #7 to port until it is returned to its proper position on the northeast side of the channel. Northbound cruisers should be able to see that green #7 is not on the correct side of the channel as they approach the St. Johns River crossing.
      Further south on the AICW near the St. Augustine Airport, green marker #41 is normally a lighted mark, but it was not lit after dark when I passed it today.

    • Healy Report: Waterway/St Johns Intersection, AICW Statute Mile 740


      The Waterway crosses the St Johns River west of Mayport, FL at Mile 740. Our continued thanks to Peg and Jim Healy for sharing their observations and advice. The Healys are dating themselves and showing their sense of humor with the reference to Will Robinson.

      Sanctuary and Crew spent the night last night on the docks at Jim King Park, Sister’s Creek, north side of the St. John’s. We departed Southbound this morning, 11/2/2017, at 07h15, at first light.

      ALERT, Will Robinson! ALERT!
      The ICW on the south side of the St. John’s is Pablo Creek.We had been warned that the markers at the entrance of Pablo Creek had been relocated, so fortunately, I was on the lookout. Indeed, they have been significantly moved to the west of the old route; maybe 500 feet. Moved west to the point that many versions of charts of the area are undoubtedly wrong! My Garmin chart plotter had me transiting several shoal islands. Be alert with Garmin BCM on hand held iDevices. Following is a screen shot of what is there now. THE BLACK LINE IS THE CURRENT ROUTE. The red track lines are previous transits, showing the OLD ROUTE. In the low light of an early dawn, this could be quite a surprise for the unsuspecting…

    • Restricted Dockage at Jacksonville Landing, Jacksonville, FL, St. Johns River


      Jacksonville Landing is on the north side of the St. Johns, midway between the Main Street Bridge and the Acosta Bridge. This complex is a downtown shopping mall/food court with a stage area for special events and concerts and normally features its own dock for visiting pleasure craft. Now experienced cruiser, David Burnham, reports very limited dockage due to damage from Hurricane Matthew.

      Update 3/9/2017:
      Arrived at the Jacksonville Landing to find no docking signs posted as the floating docks have not been repaired since last October’s Hurricane Matthew.
      Only a very small section, east of the river ferry dock section, and nearest the Main Street Bridge was available for docking while waiting for the bridge to open.
      I arrived after 4:30pm and had to wait until the next opening at 8pm instead of 6pm. Best to call the Main Street bridge tender to find out the latest opening schedule.
      Update 3/9/2017: After October 2017, Hurricane Matthew ruined most of the floating dock space at the Jacksonville Landing and only a very small section close to the Main Street Bridge remains open for docking now.

    • No Wake Zone, east of Main Street Bridge, St. Johns River, Jacksonville, FL


      As stated below, this Slow/No Wake Zone is east of the Main Street Bridge in downtown Jacksonville. No date for completion is given.

      FLORIDA – ST JOHNS RIVER – TERMINAL CHANNEL: Slow/No Wake Zone, Precaution Area.
      Superior Construction will be conducting demolition and construction operations on the wharf structures located approximately 1,500 feet east of the Main Street Bridge on the north side of the St. Johns River, near downtown Jacksonville’s old shipyards. The Captain of the Port Jacksonville requests all mariners transiting the river east of the Main Street Bridge and adjacent to the north bank docks of the old shipyards, to proceed with caution and transit at a minimum safe speed to reduce wake.
      The work is scheduled to commence on or around January 6, 2017 and will continue over the course of several months. The demolition and construction work will normally take place on weekdays during daylight hours. The operations will involve several commercial vessels, including the use of crane and material barges to remove concrete debris and drive piles. There will be a continuous transit of loaded barges from the work site to the north bank shipyard docks near the mouth of Hogan Creek. Additionally, work vessels will be moored along the project site at night. If
      additional information is required, the Project Superintendent can be reached via landline at 904-292-4240. Jobsite operators will be monitoring marine VHF Channel 16. Chart 11491 LNM 51/16

    • New Markers in St. Johns River? Orange Park, FL


      Doctors Inlet is on the west side of the St. Johns just south of Orange Park. If you have knowledge of these uncharted markers, let us hear from you.

      Good morning – We live on the west shore of the St. Johns River (FL) just north of Doctor’s Inlet, and have just recently noticed what appear to be new flashing markers (3 red, one green) near the east side of the river, north of Mandarin Point and just north and east of the flashing green “11” on chart 11492.
      They are not charted, and I can’t find them on any recent notices to mariners. Anybody know anything about them? Thanks.

    • Praise for Ortega River Marina, off the St. Johns River, Jacksonville, Fl


      Located on the Ortega River just above the Roosevelt Blvd. Bridge and just upstream of the intersection of the Ortega and St. Johns Rivers, Ortega River Marina is especially convenient to the Riverside section of Jacksonville.

      Ortega River Marina. Paul Howe is the dock master at 912-661-3437. We keep our PDQ there in the summer and fall and are very happy with it. ORM (it used to be Ortega Yacht Club Marina) is a smaller marina than “Landing”, with clean bathrooms and laundry, a small pool, and friendly, helpful boat owners. [expand title=”Read More”}Its rates are also very reasonable. ORM is near first-class yacht repair places, half a block away from one of the largest used book stores in the U.S. and a block away from West Marine, Publix, restaurants and other stores.

    • Good Words for Ortega Landing, off St. Johns River, Jacksonville, FL


      Only a mile or so upstream from downtown Jacksonville, Ortega Landing is the first facility on your starboard as you enter the Ortega River from the St. Johns. This report is from our friends at America’s Great Loop Cruisers’ Association

      The Ortega Landing Marina is a great spot. I have kept my boat there for the past three years and am very pleased. Modern floating concrete docks, spotless bathrooms, swimming pool, and an experienced staff make this an excellent choice. Contact the Dockmaster, Bruce, at 904-387-5538.
