Anchoring on the ICW

Are there a number of anchorages available along the ICW from New York to Florida, and if so, what are the charges? While anchored, what would be the best source of battery charge: genset, wind, solar, engine or something else?

Sue and Larry respond:

There are many anchorages available along the ICW and there is no charge for anchoring anywhere. You'll occasionally see mooring buoys for rent, but you don't have to take these. Fortunately, the water still belongs to all of us. For references of these anchorages, try Anchorages along the Intracoastal Waterway by Skipper Bob. This is a simple, straightforward book that lists the anchorages by mile marker. You'll want to supplement this with more detailed information. See our list of guidebooks in the sidebar to the article "Overnight Passaging."

For alternative power, we recommend a combination of a wind generator and solar panels. This, with a little help from your engine, should keep you fully charged. For further information, we like Independent Energy Guide by Kevin Jeffrey. This will really give you an understanding on how to set up an independent energy supply. We'll watch for you out there.

Best Regards,
Sue & Larry
