  • Bridge comment on Longboat Pass (SR 789) Bridge

    The channel has become extremely confusing. We came through November 10, 2018 and it was straight shot into the bridge from the Gulf of Mexico. There is one floating LP red maker then a floating red number 2 and pretty much straight to the bridge. Today coming from the ICW there is Red 2A and a Green 1 directly south of red 2, which would require a 90 degrees turn to make these 2 new marks and then once you cleared them an immediate 90 degrees turn back to clear the LP. I followed my track from November and was fine. I may have missed a notice to mariners regarding the change.

    Blackburn Point Bridge opened on demand for us on first call. It’s an interesting little swing bridge in the middle of no where. The bridge tender has to walk out to the middle to turn bridge to open it. One of my favorites on the west coast of Florida, with the exception of the new 65’ ICW bridges that you do to have to wait for of course.

    Crow’s Nest is always an awesome stop over from the Gulf or ICW. Staff very helpful with docking and helping you understand how the current affects docking. Just as we were getting to leave good blow came up, we waiting a few minutes, then they came back and helped us out. I like to be independent but geez use the help or you are going to kiss that seawall
