   Tucked deep within a maze of Canals, this anchorage offers outstanding protection in all weathers. It is about 15 minutes at idle speed from the Okeechobee Waterway.
   Just east of green 83 and red 82, bead north into the privately marked channel and follow it left, then right through the homes that line each side.
   The channel empties into a large, deep basin. There is a public park at one end. A convenience store is across the street from the park. A bank, bakery, service station, hardware store, ice and groceries are all within walking distance.
