Terry- I've done the ICW
Posted by Charlie Jones on Apr 29, 2005
the OFFICIAL part of it anyway- from Norfolk to Key West and then from Jacksonville to Galveston Texas, via the Ochechobee waterway. Parts of it twice. This trip will be Laura's intro to the ICW. I'd kinda like to do the parts from Galveston down to Port Isabel just to say I've done the whole thing. This will get half of that, leaving only from Rockport (or Port Aransas, down to Port I) to do. Maybe next year we'll finish it.
I did a delivery some years ago of a 39 footer with 6 foot draft, from Norfolk to Jacksonville, so I KNOW about the shoaling!!! And it's way worse now that the government has chopped maintenance funding.
