Pls. pass this information onto Dana Davis of Watson Realty – perhaps they can use this information to NAIL the sale there.
Dear Mr. Chuddy,
I write in reply to your query regarding President Hoover, the Sequoia and the Florida Inland Waterway. I’m afraid that we do not have any sources that document President’s Hoover’s statement ‘Someone ought to straighten out this damn curve.’
Hoover used fishing as a way to get away from the stresses of his job, so our documentation of his Florida fishing trips is pretty thin. We do not have the log book of the Sequoia. Hoover did not keep a diary. Neither his autobiography nor his book on fishing mention this story. From Hoover’s daily calendar, we do know that he was fishing in Florida: January 21-February 1, 1929; February 10-16, 1930; and December 28, 1932-January 2, 1933. The first trip is described only as ‘fishing’ in the calendars. The entries for the latter two trips offer only a bit more detail: ‘fishing off Long Key’ ‘caught sailfish’ etc.]
The most thorough book on Hoover and fishing is Hal Eliot Wert’s Hoover The Fishing President [Stackpole Press, 2005]. Working from local newspaper clippings, oral histories, and in local libraries and archives, Wert was able to document just about every boat Hoover fished from [and nearly every fish he caught]. Hoover’s 1929 Florida trip took him to Belle Isle and Long Key, where he fished from the Amitie and the Saunterer. His 1930 trip to Florida returned him to Long Key, where he fished from the Kilkenny, the Saunterer, the Dixie, and the Goofus Boy. Hoover did fish from the Sequoia [and the Kilkenny] on his 1932-1933 trip.
———>Wert does mention that the Sequoia ran aground while trying to navigate the East Coast Channel this last week of 1932. This may have prompted some action by the Corps.<---------- I hope that this is helpful. If you have further questions, I am at your service. Sincerely, Matt Matthew T. Schaefer, Archivist Herbert Hoover Presidential Library 210 Parkside Drive West Branch, IA 52358 319-643-5301

If you can be specific about any needs, we can try to find some appropriate images that can be made available with proper credits. We can check the files regarding awards if that is desired. We started the planning process with a small “village” of some 600 people and it has become a City of tens of thousands . . . that is the best award we can think of…’

As you stated” this house sits between the ICW and canal” this is not correct, this house has direct frontage of East Coast Barge Canal. FYI.. All island Estates properties has direct frontage of either ICW or Canal..
