Unhappy key west chart 11447

What do the green circles mean on this chart just west of key west channel?

Does anyone know good mooring or anchorage for 6ft draft?

what chart # are you using? dont see any green circles. key west bottom is alot of sea grass that plugs up your anchor. i have dragged anchor enough there that i prefer to rent a government mooring on the other side of flemming key. not cheap but secure and safe. also it keeps you away from the riff-raft around christmass tree island.

Those are designated anchor spots for very large ships

hey xort, if you consider my 30 ft sailboat to be a "large ship", we should go to the pub together and you can tell all the ladies about it.lol. i am refering about the garrison bight marina moorings behind flemings key. the dock masters name is matt coburn and the number is 305-809-3981.

The anchorage of Fleming Key is an option we're multi seasoned there. i don't have my charts with me so I'm not sure of the compass bearing but the farther away from the Coast Guard Station You go i wanna say NW The better. Less currant and mass exodus. Better holding but not great.

If you're talking about the green circles with the anchor symbols in them, labeled A-1, A-2, etc... they're anchorages... which is probably why they have anchor symbols in them...



Most of them would be suitable for a boat with a six foot draft...but you need to check the chart notes to see what the anchorages are setup for.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

if you anchor in front of the harbor mouth like the dude who rolled his eyes up at you,I think the coast guard would quickly remove you from the Key West harbour enterance.lol. you have to anchor left of the green markers on your left near xmass tree island when you head north. that is why those markers are there. they set the channel boundaries and you can't anchor within them. just follow the crowd and anchor where they do. I do recommond the government moorings, she blows hard there and it's shitty bottom unless you have big ass ground tackle.

if you look on google earth, the east side of flemming key will show an array of organized anchored boats. that is the government moorings. my boat is moored there. costs 290 a month but you get bathroom facilities and a secure dingy dock and a parking lot. well worth it if you have ever dragged through a key west storm.

Uhh my chart doesn't show the anchor symbols or it would have been obvious and I wouldn't ask

I also looked at every appendix and there was no symbol anywhere. Hence my post here. There is no notes on that on my chart using 1983 datum QUOTE=sailingdog;568387]If you're talking about the green circles with the anchor symbols in them, labeled A-1, A-2, etc... they're anchorages... which is probably why they have anchor symbols in them...
