“We had lunch at Roland Martins, pretty cool place. The Locks were pretty easy, but we were the only boat at every one. Fenders and patience. The only issue we encountered was low water level in Okeechobee limiting the East and West lock to 2 times a day – so we had to get across the state (9am at St. Lucie, 4pm Franklin). I checked, you’ll have plenty of water for On Demand Locks from 6am to 9pm on each side.
I’ve heard good things about overnighting in Clewiston, but will have to save that for when I’m headed back across the state to Bimini someday (tortugas is my next adventure)
I feel (and maybe I’m biased) that these boats are perfectly designed for these trips. Have a blast and throw up some pics when you’re back.
