current is to be 11 kts at maximum ebb! Wow, I can't even imagine motoring into that current!!! It was a short trip into and across the St John River and through the Sisters Creek Lift Bridge.

off the ICW to anchor or drift around for a few hours. Chuck didn't want to anchor in the MUD, so we drifted up to the bridge, and motored every so slowing into a strong current until 3:45 and then turn 180 degrees and drift back to Twin Bridges and the Kingsley Creek Railroad Bridge...right next to each other! We actually passed two barges while tooling around during our wait!

Just a note,.. Active Captain has become our ICW Bible to help us navigate through some of the trouble spots along the way. A sailboat motoring about 2 miles ahead of us today, grounded in the South Amelia River. A trawler passing by did readings for this sailboat and also asked that captain if he had any electronic charts...no. Well, this same sailboat got ground again in the Rayonier Reach. Calling Tow Boat US or Seatow ahead of a trouble spot and asking for their advise on navigating an area is also a good move!
