"pic of alligator"Indian town to the inter-coastal water way is about 28 miles on the Okeechobee Waterway with a lock located at marker 15. All the posted data about the lock says on demand. Don't let that fool you the lock master is ready willing and able if your demand fits his every two hour pattern. So if you are east bound and arrive at 1:05pm be prepared to wait until 3pm to start the cycle and about 30 minutes to complete it depending on other traffic. I was in the box with a 125'er. I was unable to make Manatee Pocket, the desired anchorage for the night due to the actual "every two hour" pattern. Of course this was motor all the way. Boo Boo Tin Tin following the whole way.
First night anchorage was at Pendarvis Cove, Stuart, FL
