hans737 appreciate the advice. have decided to do the hawks channel afterall. Plan on leaving out first thing in the morning 04/26 and plan on anchoring at Rodriguez key then up into Biscayne Bay to following day. Time is not a problem but I don't want to spend too much of it waiting for BoatUS to come drag me back into the water. first big push (not so big I guess) by myself, wish me luck.
Melrna, not familiar with Phillip and Allison, sorry

Melrna I did this route last month. While tight it is doable. I too draw 5'. Average depth is 6-7'. Not for the faint heart but I never touched. With a full moon now, I would be careful to plan on going during a raising tide. That will keep you out of trouble.
Hans you don't happen to know Phillip and Allison from GB?

travlineasy Gotta' agree the the Authya crew--5-feet is really tight.

CaptainForce I came up from Ilsamarada on the Bayside a couple months back. Five feet can pass here, but it's near the edge. I'd suggest Hawk's Channel from Marathon up to the 65' bridge between Long Key & Lower Matecumbe. Take care and joy, Aythya crew

Leaving the keys...

Wondering if anyone has been up the ICW (inside) from Marathon to Miami lately? I'll be leaving next week with a 5 foot draft planning to go the inside (singlehanding) and am hoping for some local knowledge as to the skinny water areas. I know Hawks Channel has lots of depth but I'm not sure I want to risk having to make an overnight alone! Sort of looking forward to seeing the other side of things too.
On a side note, if anyone is in need of a great slip (private home) in Marathon mine's available after the 25th.
Appreciate any info on this trip...
