We passed an interesting boat going the other way named “H200”. A little later, we heard the captain explain to a bridge tender that it was a new ferry bound for New York Harbor.
As it turned out, the boat had been built in Louisiana. They’d tried to take the short cut across the Okeechobee and ran aground. They were on their way back to go the long way around South Florida.
We tied up for the night at the Clewiston dolphins. A “dolphin” in this usage is 3 or more pilings lashed together in a rough triangle. These are placed along the waterway to give commercial vessels something to secure to, but recreational boats can use them too, if there’s room.
