I just purchased a 30' sailboat in Stuart FL and plan to sail it to Panama
City, FL. The Okeechobee Waterway's low water
level at this time doesn't allow for my 5' draft
so I'm forced to consider a trip around the south coast of Florida
via the Keys.
My question is, has anyone made this trip that could provide information that could prevent having to go as far as Key West
NW toward my destination
. Checking the charts
has unbelieveable low depths west
of the keys highway all the way to the end.
