  • A Good Visit to Darien, GA, off AICW Statute Mile 651.5

    Darien City Docks lie along the northern banks of the Darien River, hard by the charted 31-foot fixed bridge, in the heart of downtown Darien, which is 7 nautical miles off the AICW via the fully marked Darien River Channel, featuring minimum 14 foot depths. Recent repairs to the docks add to the attractiveness of this lovely river port.

    We just spent a couple days on the town dock in Darien GA. We were greeted by the most friendly dock master David. Darien had been on our list of places to visit for quite some time. We highly recommend this side trip – about 6 miles off the ICW. This town is very boater friendly and the people were welcoming. They have a great coffee shop Blondies, one block from the marina. We also received a complimentary glass of wine one night while visiting the Waterfront Wine & Gourmet, who also had live entertainment and a great wine selection. We are some if the best shrimp we’ve tasted at B&J Seafood. We visited King George Fort and the Rice Plantation. Well worth a visit. A must do!

  • ARGUS Update!!

    This notice of an update of ARGUS by John Hersey is definitely GOOD NEWS for Waterway cruisers. If you are not now a user of ARGUS, give it a try by clicking the ARGUS box at the top of any of our Chartview windows – it is an amazing technology! Keep your fingers crossed that NOAA will wake up and begin to use ARGUS in place of the infamous magenta line.

    Hi Larry,
    Just a note to let you know we just updated the AICW solution set this morning, thanks to about 7 million new soundings since March from a bunch of boats including long time contributors M/V Altair, M/V Chez Nous, Trawler Beach House, Reality Check Sailing, M/V Jackets II, S/V Makai, and M/V Elixir. The update reflects several additional transits between Norfolk and the Keys, new Bahamas cruise ship data, St. John’s River updates from Jacksonville to Sanford, and previously uncharted waters on the west coast of Florida thanks to the adventurous expeditions of Trawler Beach House! The total AICW soundings count that makes up the SSECN ARGUS layer is now up to about 30 million.
    Also FYI, our magenta line proposal is back in NOAA’s hands. We appreciate your continued encouragement and support as we move forward in applying ARGUS data to help update the magenta line!
    Just let me know if you have any questions.
    Thanks,
    John

    Boat U.S.BoatUS continues to be the nation’s leading advocate for boating safety, including the proper and consistent use of life jackets, especially on children.

    Help Save a Child’s Life – Become a Life Jacket Loaner Site

    Deadline to Apply is March 1st

    Largest, Longest Running Nationwide Loaner Program

    ANNAPOLIS, Md., December 8, 2014 – Waterfront businesses, local organizations or government agencies can help themselves, and at the same time, also possibly help save a child’s life. All they have to do is join the nation’s largest Kids’ Life Jacket Loaner Program offered by the non-profit BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water. By becoming one of the Foundation’s new no-cost loaner site locations available for 2015, a local business or group can have positive interaction with the boating public when a jacket is needed for the day or weekend. However, loaner site applications will only be accepted at www.BoatUS.org/life-jacket-loaner until March 1, 2015.

    There is no cost to set up a loaner site and it’s easy to do. “We are looking for hands-on sites that will sign out the life jackets to boaters to help us track their usage,” said BoatUS Foundation Outreach Manager Alanna Keating. “This will help us make sure there are jackets always on hand.” Since the program began in 1997, the Foundation has learned that staffed sites have a higher rate of return for borrowed life jackets, which provide a better community service and continuing opportunities to discuss proper fit. Today, the Foundation supports over 550 sites nationwide that can be found at BoatUS.org/life-jacket-loaner/usamap.asp.

    “We look to build an ongoing relationship with our sites and periodically ask them to check in with us to tell us how it’s going.” added Keating. “For borrowers, there is no cost. We know kids grow fast, and sometimes boaters need a correctly-sized jacket for a younger guest.”

    Three children’s lives have been saved by wearing a borrowed BoatUS Foundation loaner life jacket and it has likely helped many others — each year, jackets are loaned out over 140,000 times. “So, in addition to doing good work for the community, this gives groups or businesses that manage loaner sites a little additional foot traffic,” said Keating.

    The most qualified applicants — based on geographical needs as well as their ability to manage the program — will be selected and notified in spring 2015. They will receive a “life jacket loaner kit” of 12 life jackets in various sizes from infant to adult, a protective container to keep them clean and dry, loaner program signage to display, promotional materials and easy-to-use sign-out sheets to track usage.

    About the BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water:

    The BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water is a national leader promoting safe, clean and responsible boating. Funded primarily by donations from the over half-million members of Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS), it provides innovative educational outreach directly to boaters and anglers with the aim of reducing accidents and fatalities, increasing stewardship of America’s waterways and keeping boating safe for all. A range of boating safety courses – including 33 free state courses – can be found at BoatUS.org/courses.

  • Problem Stretches along the AICW Discussed

    This discussion is from our friends on the AGLCA Forum. While we certainly appreciate Captain Ed’s recommendation of SSECN’s list of AICW Problem Stretches, we strongly recommend that a reader choose the listings of Problem Stretches under the various States found on our Homepage. These listings have the very latest comments and updates on the Problem Stretches within the particular state. For example, see http://cruisersnet.net/category/nc-aicw-problems/  for North Carolina. And whether you go inside or outside, we wish you the best!

    By: CaptainEd on December 7th, 2014, 7:48 am
    I think you’ll find this link to Salty Southeast Cruisers net helpful to give you the current places to be showing extra caution: http://cruisersnet.net/category/all-other-news/icw-problem-areas/. Keep in mind though that many of the caution areas are noted by cruisers who were just in the wrong place and would rather blame the charts than themselves. The tide isn’t too much of a factor if your boat draws less that 4’. It generally only ranges 0’ to 3’ down there. There are a few notable caution spots like Lockwood’s Foley, Shallotte Inlet, Carolina Beach and Mud Creek, but it’s not a difficult run. If you do decide to run outside familiarize yourself with Dial-A-Buoy for accurate reports of sea conditions. You don’t want to get caught 25nm off shore or having to come in through unfamiliar inlets if seas are running 8’ or more.
    If you’re running a slow boat (less than about 16 kt. cruise) I’d recommend staying inside unless in a sailboat most of the way to Charleston as the main inlets are a good distance apart (Beaufort, Masonboro, Cape Fear, Georgetown, Charleston), and some of the lesser inlets are to be avoided. Also, the time you spend running in and out of the inlets will cost you much of the time you save by being able to run faster outside. Just remember to mind your wake in populated areas or you’ll hear about it over your radio.
    Mind if I ask why you’re heading south instead of north at that time of year? You’ll find very few boats heading that way as most insurance companies prohibit going south during hurricane season. Also, it’s hot, and there are a lot of horse flies near Georgetown and through Georgia. It’ll also have you pushing against the current as you head north from the Gulf, and probably have you laying up down south for next winter.

  • Follow Up on Submerged Vessel, Gulfport Mooring Field, Boca Ciega Bay, near GICW Statute Mile 115

    Our thanks to Skipper Burnham for his description of the location and depth of this underwater hazard. Gulfport Mooring Field is on the northeastern shore of Boca Ciega Bay on the lower portion of the Tampa peninsula.

    I have been remiss at reporting this submerged vessel because I had thought it was already posted on SSCN but cannot find it in the archives.
    There is a large powerboat that sunk in the Gulfport mooring area and it is marked by a small white buoy that may be mistaken for a crab pot marker except for the yellow band around the top. We cruised over this sunken vessel and found it to be lying entirely to the west of the marker buoy and not under the buoy as we had suspected. We were surprised to find less than 3 feet of water measured by our boat hook above the highest point of the sunken vessel.
    Because this sunken vessel lies quite a way south of the Gulfport fishing pier it is not a hazard to cruisers using the Gulfport Casino Dock for visiting Gulfport unless their approach is close by the Trawler with the light green hull that is moored to the west of the sunken vessel. If that light green hulled Trawler is NOT on her mooring, as usual, the sunken wreck is a poorly marked shallow water hazard that does not show up on Google Earth.
    David Burnham

    Through Skipper Burnham’s efforts, the USCG has issued Notice to Mariners. Thank you David Burnham! This is the Boating Community at its Best!!
    The Notice to Mariners and David’s correspondence is copied below:

    Larry,
    The USCG has located the 30′ Power Yacht that sunk in the Gulfport, Florida mooring area on June 4th and it is now on the Notice to Mariners with a GPS approximate location to help pinpoint the hazard for cruisers. I’m grateful that it hasn’t caused someone a serious problem up ’til now. I can’t help but feel that I’ve “stuck my nose” into some other Captain’s affairs although it seems irresponsible that the USCG wasn’t contacted earlier this year.
