Okeechobee advice

I have a 33' Sea Ray and I'm wondering about crossing Lake Okeechobee in forecasted 15-25 MPH winds. Any advice? Should I plan to take the rim route? Postpone?

Postpone.


Some of the shallow spots may be a problem with the waves at that wind speed.

Re: Okeechobee advice

If the winds are from the south maybe the Rim route..but postpone on crossing.

Looking west from the Port Mayaca lock across Lake O.
