        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.

        Entering Monroe Harbour Marina’s east basin can be tough, because it is poorly marked. After rounding G “5″, off to the north east you will see two small white PVC pipes. A straight line from G “5″ to the west pipe will give you at least 8 feet of water at the lowest water levels. When you approach the pipes keep them close on Your port side. Continue on this heading until you are clear of the pipes, then you can turn toward the red marker just outside of the East basin entrance.

        When I sent my previous message about Lake Monroe and the approach to Monroe Harbor Marina I did not have my chart book in front of me. I was out on Lake Monroe yesterday and realized the directions I gave in my previous post were not as clear as they should be. Let me clear it up:
        After you pass under the railroad bridge and enter Lake Monroe, you will encounter a well-marked channel that leads to a turning basin about two miles out at G7. At that basin you want to take the channel that heads SW straight to the marina. This channel is well maintained. About three quarters of the way down the channel at R7 you will see another channel that heads to the right toward the shore. DO NOT take that channel. It is not maintained and is quite shallow in spots. Continue heading straight toward the marina.
        Monroe Harbor has two basins, east and west. The entrances to both can get skinny in spots so be careful and watch your depth sounder carefully going in. If you are directed to the east basin, be sure to favor the red side of the entrance where the buildings are. The side with the wall is shallow.

        Be very careful going into Monroe Harbor. There is very skinny water even in good times. We drew 4 feet and churned a good bit of mud entering last April.

        50 ft. boat 5 ft. draft. We stayed for two days. They had plenty of room in June. Good facility & ship’s store. They can get diesel by truck, but it needs to be over 500 gal. Sanford is a good town to visit. Lot’s of history and nearby stores. It’s a long trip if they don’t have room, so call ahead. Also be sure to call for instructions as to how to get in – it’s a little confusing for first timers.
