Great Harbour Trawler Association


Thank you for visiting our Great Harbour Trawler Association (GHTA) site. The GHTA was founded in May 2002. Since that time we continue to grow each year. Our primary goals, in addition to the friendship and camaraderie, include the exchange of ideas and information that enhances the cruising life that we all enjoy. This site is available for ideas and to provide information to Great Harbour trawler owners as well as others who are interested in cruising. We offer an Associate Membership also to non-Great Harbour trawler owners who may possibly be interested in a Great Harbour trawler for their future.

  • Good Visit to Murphy Island, St. Johns River, Palatka, FL
    Murphy Island is south of Palatka and separated from the mainland by Murphy Creek, making for good exploring by dinghy as Skipper Reeves mentions in this report which makes picturesque Murphy Island sound so nice compared to the commercialism of large marinas. The dock is short for our 40 ft boat. Water depth is 6 […]
  • Advice on Crossing Lake Okeechobee, Okeechobee Waterway
    This AGLCA Forum report by Skipper Healy is prompted by a discussion of the Okeechobee Waterway which mentions Clewiston, Florida, which has long been a good source for checking depths in Lake Okeechobee. See Peg and Jim Healy are longtime contributors to SSECN. What’s interesting about Lake “O” is NOT the datum for the […]
  • East to West Okeechobee Crossing Described, Okeechobee Waterway
    This AGLCA Forum report includes a stop at Roland Martin’s Marina, found on a small canal in Clewiston, Florida, which has long been a good source for checking depths in Lake Okeechobee.

  • Vexilar T-Box WiFi fishfinder & Navionics SonarChart Live wow
    Written for Panbo by Ben Ellison

    Navionics_Vexilar_SonarChart_Live_skinny_water_cPanbo.jpgThis mid-January screenshot represents a very pleasing experience in marine electronics testing. Thanks to a Vexilar SonarPhone T-Box SP200 and the Navionics Boating app I’m cruising around in my 9-foot dinghy with more than just charting and a fishfinder. I have access to three different chart formats plus a live SonarChart being created as I move along, and the data I’m collecting will be available to my fellow cruisers a week or two later. It sounds exotic, but the total cost was about $250 (iPad mini excepted), installation was fairly trivial, and it all worked quite well right out of the box.
