I am trying this post again don't know what happen first post.
I left Ft Perce on a Monday and stopped at Lake Worth
Monday night and than down to No Name harbor late tuesday night and than to Rodriquez Key early after noon,should have looked for closer anchorage to 5 mile bridge we got to Rodriquez key early and did have plenty time to go more but we made good time wind
were very good.
Left early thursday morning and went under 5 mile bridge around 10 am and motored all day and into night until friday around noon when we got to Punta Gorda Marina.
Traveling from 5 mile bridge my chart plotter said we were suppose to be in 7' channel but my depth
finder kept saying 5' with my 4'11'' draft
but could see the bottom grass and never once touched bottom so maybe the grass gave a false reading.
I did see other sailboat move pretty fast not even in the channel.
