I don't know any areas in particular, but a friend of mine had to be towed $960.00 (lucky for having insurance), and the sand (or other sediment in the water) effected his intake on his engine. He put it on a trailer after getting it home, and flushed it out (not seeing much) he put it back in the water, and thankfully everything seems fine now.

The tide was really high, and when it went out of the harbor it may have done some stuff down at Boca Grande (which is where coincidentally that he had his problem). But in the upper part of the harbor - I haven't heard of any issues. I have heard of others that have inboard engines have had similar issues with unusually high amounts of stuff in the water. Up in MD in the Chesapeake Bay, after a big storm there is a huge amount of debris in the water, and I don't remember hearing anyone having issues like those reported here - although I did lose a prop because I hit a submerged stump once - up there after a storm.

I have noticed quite a lot of debris in the canal in the last couple of weeks but it seems to have calmed down lately. I hear that the canals have much fresher water now with all the rain.
