CrazyLeaf Thanks, I'll looking into Flemming Island....But you know GCS is sounding like the happening place for marinas
Gambling lessons, Belly dancing shows, and herbal use classes....
so does anyone have time to sail down there with all those activities on shore?

CaptainForce Crazyleaf, Your draft will be fine for the St. Johns River, but not for Julington Creek. Currents are mild in the wide area of the river south of Jax. You might want to check out the $11/ft rate at Fleming Island Marina,- slips available, floating docks, out on the river, good amenities and about four miles south of NAS Jax. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew

sailhog Tim,
I tried to get down there the weekend before last, but got waylaid up in HHI with home repairs. I'll be heading to GCS in a couple of weeks. Hopefully the weather will be clearing up. It's been AWFUL down here....

How are you doing?

Poor Grandpa.

Hey Hog, I've been meaning to get a hold of you.
How goes the refit?

sailhog Crazy,
Stay away from the sailors down in Green Cove Springs. I took my boat down there last January, and all sorts of insanity ensued. Imagine and Cap'n Dave taught my eighty-year-old to gamble, they taught my wife how to belly dance, they taught my grandmother how to use a beer bong, they taught dear old grandpa how to roll a joint -- all sorts of crazy stuff. Stay away! That's all I have to say!

JagsBch Not saying it is not doable by any means, I am sure you can pull it off, maybe with a bit of trial and error learning the sandbar. There are plenty of deep places to sail in the river, and there is a deep channel to boot to the marina. but you are limitted by needing 7 foot of water at low tide. If your already locked with the purchase, then by all means bring it, the sunsets are awesome at the marina.
