The Port Mayaca Railway lift bridge was one of my favorite on the Florida water ways, until Almost8 pointed out it resembles a guillotine …. you decide.
We docked for the night in Indiantown, a well known safe haven. For a very small fee, boats and RVs of all types and sizes reserve a spot every year, in case there is a storm. During Hurricane Irma hundreds of boaters found refuge in the little village – no one was turned away – and none of the boats were damaged by the storm! We were thrilled to find Namaste, a well-loved sailboat previously owned by fellow looper, JoAnn McFall.
It was our first truly restful night of sleep, the perfect temperature with a gentle breeze flowing through the cabin all night.
Some of the boats have been there for a very very very long time; yep, that’s black mold. Note the irony of this boat’s name “Git ‘R Done”
… this is why we have to wash the boat all the time, darn it.
Next stop – Stuart Florida.
If you are headed to the Trawler Fest, look for us at the Hutchinson Island Marriott Beach Resort & Marina, Stuart, FL – Tuesday, March 6 through Saturday, March 10.

Oh yeah definitely looks like a guillotine! Wow!
When Jerry used to test boats for Outboard Marine he used to stop at Indiantown for lunch every day. They were based out of Stuart.
