Sailordude What is your Draft

I own little knock em Down Key on the south end of Big Pine. Hey somebody has to do it. LOL Anywho, rhere isn't much water in that area. I have to use my Dark Side boat to get to the island. If you have a boat with less than 2 feet you might be able to anchor on the south end of Big Pine.

You might try posting in the in the appropriate Destinations forum, and use a title that is more specific to your request.

I cannot help with your request. I am in the Pacific Northwest.

hellosailor has a spectacular aura about hellosailor has a spectacular aura about
" near no name key and big pine key on the west side,"
on the west side of which one? Neither looks good for dropping a hook unless you have a hovercraft. If you have the NOAA charts, you're looking at channels on the south side of the highway and extreme shoals on the north. Anchoring in a designated channel should get you a quick USCG visit. Getting stuck in the shoals...might not be any more fun. There are some spots NE and NW of NoName that might do though.
You may only draw three feet, but once you park those twin keels, you're not going anywhere, are you?
