Peck Lake Florida Anchorage

06 December 2018 | Peck Lake, FL
Great Spot for Northerlies Coming Thru
After spending two nights at Pendarvis Cove on the Indian River we headed to Peck Lake on the ICW, only one bridge to open on this short 12.2nm three hour journey.

Old Roosevelt Bridge

We passed this anchorage last spring and thought it looked promising. We obviously like it it as we've been anchored here for 7 nights.

Peck Lake, FL

The views have been spectacular! A parade of beautiful boats of all sizes come and go, too.

Sunset at Peck Lake

This is the cold front at it passed a couple days ago. Somehow marker G19 was caught when it flashed.

Sunset Cold Front

There were a few rain events this week also as the front tried to move through. And at night there was lightning show well off shore to the east several nights in a row.

Rainbow over the Atlantic

When it wasn't too windy we enjoyed taking rides on 'SPACE PATROL', our 8'6" Highfield Aluminum bottom dinghy with a new 5hp Tohatsu. Charlie is working on motor break in.

Space Patrol

We took interesting side trips through the mangroves and to the public access to drop trash.



And take to the beach. That's TARDIS in the background.

Jupiter Island

The beach here is sparingly used as you can only get here by water. FL Parks brings a few people across the ICW by pontoon but most arrive by boat or dinghy. The first time we walked thru the trail to the beach, about 50 yards, we were amazed. It was windy on the beach.

Atlantic Ocean

Looking South into the wind



And north, no one here!



We made this trip several times during the week for three mile walks. Just like home, ha!



We stopped often to watch the commercial fisherman just yards offshore hauling in fish after fish.



During the week we also did boat chores. There's always something to do. The biggest job was starting up the water maker. The first time was an all day job for Charlie, finding loose water connections, running a larger gauge electric wire for the boost pump, etc. At the end of the day, it worked, and we made 40 gallons of water our first time. Exciting stuff!!!



It's a maze of hoses and wires. Cruise RO has the best instructions which makes it easy, sort of.



We put the watermaker in a V-berth closet and the motor and membranes where the holding tank used to be (we now have a composting head-story for another day).



We chose a 110AC version watermaker so that the process is fast, making just over a half a gallon an hour. That's 30g in about an hour which fills one of our two water tanks. Our Honda 2000 generator powers the unit and we can charge phones, batteries at the same time.



Now that TARDIS can make it's own water we use more. We've made water three times this week enabling us to keep the boat so clean now, and so are we - longer showers.

The anchor stop was moved this week to fit the larger Rochna Anchor. Epoxy work...



And the noisy cabin hatch got new teflon slide material epoxied in. Having the hatch closed to weight the slides while the epoxy hardened created a head obstacle...thus a new use for Charlie's hat.



We ate well, thanks to CHEF Queen Eileen at the stove.



Eileen found time to start reading from her library, finishing two books early in the week. Only 40 to go!



Charlie found time to blog in his quarters.



All the while listening to tunes, podcasts and political news.
