2015 House of Refuge Raft Up
March 28, 2015, 1200 hours
We will meet for a luncheon raft up rendezvous on the bay side across from the House of Refuge. Just north of the public dock there is a good sheltered anchorage where we can have a raft up.  For those who want to   

A little something different this month. This Saturday, march 21, it's a scavenger hunt!  Stimulates your mind, the excitement of the 'find', with friends and good food at the end. We can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday morning than participating in a road rally scavenger hunt.  Following a course around Martin County we will decode clues for answers, take pictures, and collect a few requested items. At the end we will meet back at the Twisted Tuna for lunch.


Cruse to the 2015 House of Refuge Raft Up

March 28, 2015, 1200 hours

We will meet for a luncheon raft up rendezvous on the bay side across from the House of Refuge. Just north of the public dock there is a good sheltered anchorage where we can have a raft up.  For those who want to go there by car there is public parking and a small beach and dock where we can pick people up with a small boat to ferry them to the party. You can call for a pick up from land at (305) 632-9663 or (305) 238-0508.

If you are cruising I find it more interesting if you research your destination, its history and its unique creatures. The other side of the road from our raft up is the very scenic “Saint Lucie Rocks” and the House of Refuge.

If you think you will be joining the raft up contact Thomas Mestrits 305-238-0508 or capttommes@aol.com

As of 2/25/15 :


As of 1400 hours today, Fort Pierce Inlet is still closed and the exact location of the sunken barge is not yet available from the Fort Pierce USCG. However, a CG vessel is currently on location directing traffic away from the sunken barge and the inlet. This report is from TCPalm.com and this alert is brought to you by Fort Pierce City Marina, a SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS' NET SPONSOR!


FORT PIERCE - The Fort Pierce Inlet is closed Wednesday [2/25/2015] after a barge that was being towed sunk early Tuesday evening in the inlet, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

Fireman Mark Umphrey with the Coast Guard Station in Fort Pierce said as of 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, the inlet is closed and that boats can't go in or out.

Fishing charter operators were turned back Wednesday morning. Capt. Tris Colket of Last Mango charters said the Fort Pierce Police Department Marine Unit turned 21 boats around Wednesday morning.

Umphrey did not know when the inlet would reopen.

The barge began sinking about 6:30 or 7 p.m. Tuesday, as it was being towed by a tug named the Main Office, said Petty Officer Jon-Paul Rios.

Rios said the Coast Guard sent boats and a helicopter, and recovered one person and a dog out of the water. The Coast Guard continued looking for a second person. The condition of that person wasn't clear.
