2018 Keys MOT at the Breezy Palms

Recommended Posts

Have not seen it.  Usually, the registration will open later in the Summer. 

The important thing is securing hotel & dock space.  Breezy is always booked up.  Sands of Islamorada next door had no docks last week. Not sure about La Siesta on their docks.

Ray & Becky are in. Looking forward to seeing everyone and catching a few.

ALSO....... does anyone have current info on the condition of the usual routes, channels, markers, signposts in the areas frequented by OT attendees? Have channels shifted? Are there dangerous post-hurricane logs, dock posts, etc in the water?  Thanks.  Ray

I've been down a few times since to fish the bay and there seem to be no obstructions. I have always chosen to go on days with lite winds and clear skies for visibility and I would still recommend operating with caution if you are unsure.

Glad you and Becky are making the haul down, Ray !!

A couple of the businesses were wrecked and still not opened, but all the liquor stores were OK.

We were at Breezy over the 4th. All the channels and approaches are clear and still in the same general locations.  The 'channel' into Breezy looks different, but is still shallow and hard bottomed.  Seagrass grew all over the old pathway out, so you just have to trust the PVC poles. No missing markers that we saw. Lots your of lumber in the mangroves, so each high tide can float some loose.. Gotta keep your eyes scanning..

We followed Scott Wilson over to Flamingo, The Twin Key route is clear of snags and is deep.  The Wheel Ditch is clear.. The Basin at Worldwide seems shallower.  Some sandbars have moved, so run by sight, not just the crumb lines from last year.

The docks are brand new, the ramp is brand new, and the Jetty has new smooth slab on top..  and THE NEW PUBLIX OPENED across from Whale Harbour !!

Hope for calm-ish weather and we will have another great OT !!

Marc, thanks for the good update. It sure helps to have good visible channel markers especially when way out from civilization. Glad the Publix is open. Looking forward to another great event.  Thanks.  Ray
