Observations from Chez Nous, Southbound in the Atlantic ICW:
There are a few problem areas of the ICW that I have covered in previous Alerts, but boaters are still having problems with them. And there is the same old shoaling.
Alligator River (NC) Entrance Channel Dogleg, Mile 80:
We have a new ICW chart book and one year old electronic charts. The markers that were changed sometime between May and November, 2004 are not shown on either. While the old channel here was a dredged cut with a straight line of green markers, the new channel follows the naturally deep water, with a dogleg to the w...... Read More

Powerboat Etiquette On The ICW
Andrew S. asked, "Do people do a lot of speeding through the waterway? Is there a lot of wake?"


From Douglas: Overall, we've been thrilled with the politeness everyone exhibits on the waterway, and the skill of boat operators. Sure, there are always a few jet-skiers buzzing around here and there near towns on weekends. But other than that, faster powerboats slow way down so that their wakes don't severely buffet slo......

Today there are seven boats here, but at the height of the cruising season we’re told there’ve been as many as 20. There’s plenty of room, good protection, a sand bottom that can an anchor to the center of the earth, terrific reefs to snorkel, deep passes for spea...... Read More

Suggestions For The ICW

Peter L. wrote that he's doing the Intracoastal Waterway next year on his new Beneteau 44, and asked if we had any suggestions for him.

Each has a lot to offer, especially if your boat ...... Read More
