        We were handed a notice today by the police when they came to our boat here in Eleuthera. I ask the cops point blank if it was OK for us to leave and and stop at a few anchorages on the way back to Florida… they say “Yes Man, no one is keeping your here.” In short, if you stay you shouldn’t move but if you are moving to leave, thats ok. You still can’t go on land

      • Draper WMA State Lakes (York County)
      • Jonesville Reservoir (Union County)
      • Lake Cherokee (Cherokee County)
      • Lake Edgar Brown (Barnwell County)
      • Lake Edwin Johnson (Spartanburg County)
      • Lake George Warren (Hampton County)
