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

Indiantown Road Bridge                                STM 1006.2         0934

Jupiter Federal Bridge                                    STM 1004.8         0950

Jupiter 707 Bridge                                            STM 1004.1         0956

Hobe Sound Bridge                                         STM 995.9           1108

Indian River Bridge, new 65’                        STM 984.9           1239

Indian River 707A Bridge, new 65’             STM 981.0           1306

Fort Pierce South Bridge, new 65’             STM 966               1520

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.
