I went in about 150 yards. It was at low tide. I was joined by Seaquell who went about 50 yards further in. Pleasant night.

The oxbow east of Pine Is. can be entered from the north carrying 3-4 feet of draft, but only on a positive tide. At that, the channel is rather narrow & shifty at the entrance. On a low tide, even my Shoal Cat has trouble finding the sweet spot. The south entrance is vastly more user-friendly. One of my favorite Florida anchorages on the east-coast ICW.

I too think Pine Island is a great anchorage, but NOT pet friendly!

It's also tough to stop half way between JAX and St Augustine. There is just so much to do and see in America's Oldest City, that one wants to go on and enjoy that little city!

Ted: Looks like you're the first guy I know of to ever come across two North Sea Manatees on the ICW. That example closest to you at the anchorage was one of the two others between here and Maryland.

Weather is turning nice over here now and so far the Red Tide has not come back in full force. Probably begin work on Bucky again on Tuesday. Been doing work on the condos all summer. Welcome to Florida!

Actually not as bad as first feared.

Several of the Bayfront restaurants flooded but most if not all have reopened. Caps (North Beach) reopened a couple of days ago.

Uh huh. You think we natives don't have the skinny on the anchorages huh?

Seriously, that's a nice little cut off the ICW if that is where you are.

Where do you stay in New Bern?

We're thinking about making that a drop-off point sometimes, too...
