Have a question for all you South Florida
cruisers out there.
We plan on sailing from our homeport in Miami
to Tampa. The obvious route
is to head
north and cut through Lake Okeechobee.
However, we heard that due to the drought, some portions of the waterway were closed to navigation
, or if not closed, then it's very shallow. This poses a concern as we draft
40 inches and would hate to get stuck!
Does anyone have an update on the current
conditions and/or where I can get updates from the offical source? I would assume it's the Coast Guard (navigatable waterway), but not sure.
Any help anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated. We're not doing the run until after the Miami Boat Show
, so if you don't see this immediately, please feel free to contribute anyway!
Take care and again, thanks.
Lee and Terry
