RE: Neat article about the ICW and Snow's Cut
Just finished a book written after a cruise from Mass to Fl in the fall of 1912 , return in spring of 1913.
The fellow used a 26 ft cat boat and aux . Mass to Miami.
Almost all was feel your way down, he must have grounder 1000 times or more.
The Raratan Canal was in operation , but like too many a late start was a problem.
At least he had a small coal SHIPMATE range .
Great read for someone that has run the modern ditch since 1968
