Sand moves South on those long period surfer waves, which we have had a bunch of in the last week. I have used boca inlet for over 40 years. I always run close to the South jetty , down beach then offshore. You don't always need that extra water, but why risk messing up some gear?

I remember one night coming back from a swordy trip and we went in real slow thru the center to come back in. Ran aground and was stuck there for about a hour as the tide changed.

My big concern now was the shoaling last week at Port of Palm Beach. We have to do emergency dredging there every year and we may have to do it again soon. ( I'm Port Engineer for POPB)

Sand is build up inside along the north side, during the incoming Saturday afternoon I’d say it was half it’s typical width. The bar is back across the mouth of north side also

Default Boca Inlet shoaling bad. Has become way too shallow

Does anyone know who to contact to get dredging started? It’s become very shallow right down the center of the East/West leg.
