I just got the first notice about the new moorings thay are putting in in Ft Myers Beach. They will start installing moorings in June. I won't have to move for a while, they are starting with the East mooring field, I am at the west end of the harbor. I was hoping something would come up to put a stop to the moorings, but I guess it is close to the end of free anchorage in one of the last free harbors in South Florida.
This looks like the last season that I will be able to anchor over the sandbar (my boat has a 1 foot draft). I have anchored hear for 5 seasons,(two different boats) I will miss it. There may be a loophole, according to the map they gave me, the Ft Myers Beach city limit line cuts the sandbar in half, I am anchored very close to the boarder. The town may not have jurisdiction past that line.
