Monday 2/24/14 – Start 0815, Finish 1540, from Lake Worth to Fort Pierce
Weather/Sea – Sunny 70-80, calm ICW
Captain - John Kwak
Crew – Dan Martin, Paul Kirk
We decided to stay in the ICW today because it is more direct. We raised anchor slowly at 0815. Slowly because the black muck has to be carefully washed off or it winds up in the chain locker and stinks.
We again had to open a few bridges but not as many as yesterday.
The bridges are; ICW STM Time of crossing
PGA Blvd Bridge STM 1012.6 0835
Donsald Ross Bridge STM 1009.4 0900

Docked in Harbortown Marina at 1540 same slip as on 2/14/14. We all had Prime rib in the Harbor Cove Restaurant which is 100’ from the boat slip. Two beers and later 2 rum and cokes and I was ready for bed. My crew stayed at the bar, they are a lot younger. I was worried because they had to walk on a 24” plank to get in the boat. They made it in all right, but a little hung-over the next morning.
