        We pulled into Salt Run on the evening of the 20th of November and our first observation was “Wow, where did all the junk go?” Our second observation was that there were several lines of crab pots. Upon closer examination the crab pots were white mooring balls, very neatly identified as SR 1, etc. We coasted up to one, caught the painter, and soon had Carolina snugged in.
        Around 5:20 pm we were hailed by a St. Augustine Marina employee who got us registered, suggested a ball that had better for our draft, and we paid our $14.00 fee for the night.
        We were given a card identifying the ball and the date which gave us access to everything we would have had at the City Marina, other than water and electric.
        We fully understand the controversy over anchoring rights in and around various Florida municipalities, but having experienced what St. Augustine has accomplished, are very satisfied with the product.

        Immediately S of ICW green marker 1 , just inside the inlet, (you remember that ICW markers have the yellow square in the middle of the sign) you’ll find the privately maintained markers for Salt Run. Past the Conch House you’ll see some 70 City moorings, extending South only to the ramp at the base of the Lighthouse. There’s dredging activity there until December 24, and you should find good depth up to the boat ramp. City won’t provide launch service here, but it’s a good anchorage. Either downtown or Salt Run requires a cab to the grocery store. Harbormaster’s at 904 825 1026.
