That was our log from March 2001. It was our second day cruising in Florida waters (the first day we were with a hired captain). We were newbies, and had no idea navigating Ponce Inlet required local knowledge. Below is a Google map picture showing how much shoaling occurs in that area.
We do miss this lovely and well-run marina. We had met some fun people and had a wonderful time here. We encountered just one problem. Our wooden dock was infested with roaches. We discovered that after coming back from a pot-luck get together at the boater's lounge. It was the first time we were out at night. Can you imagine stepping on not one but tons of roaches? That crunching sound was downright gross... I didn't dare to go out at night again. Despite spraying the lines with chemicals, some did get on the boat. We had to bug bomb the boat twice to get rid of them critters.
