Anchoring in the ICW is like parking on the freeway, sometimes there is a shoulder you can pull over on, sometimes there isn't. In some places there is a wide area behind a bridge outside the usual channel, sometimes the ICW goes through a lake, or a bay that has enough depth to anchor outside the channel. Sometimes there are side channels that lead to a good anchorage, or a marina,.....And sometimes you just have to rush to get somewhere you can safely stop for the night, or spend the night dodging barges in the dark.
