In the last column I told you that I’d help to keep you posted about important events relevant to east coast cruising and I discussed some of the problems in the ICW of North Carolina. Here are some especially severe problem areas that we’ve observed in our recent trip up the coast, or that have been reported to us, in South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. The depths will probably be shallower by the time that you read this, but you can get the point. Don’t use this for navigation. This is given only as representative examples of shallow areas result...... Read More
