There's more than enough water. There will definitely be better areas than others for high speed running but when I rode last night, I didn't run into any area almost any boat could run. Don't hesitate and for what it's worth, got a good amount of rain out there today.

alligator alley west to mile marker 35 (not far west of hwy 27) you can make a U turn and get on the south side. there is a fire station and a couple of boat ramps, That is the Miami canal you want to ride west from there

We're going with a couple of boats, one of which is my mediocre tour boat. I hope there's enough water. :rebel:

I'm riding Friday, Saturday is a bit too crowded for my taste.
I am putting in a few miles west of there.

For all of you coming and going from the 35MM ramp PLEASE be careful.

You do not need to do a u-turn to access the boat ramps. Exit at the 35 MM rest area and continue around back under the bridge to the stop sign. Turn left and go over the bridge. It takes you right to the ramps. You will pass two ramps on your way to the stop sign. You could launch at the second ramp after you go under the bridge but it is quicker if you drive all the way to the main ramps.
