(Statute Mile 330, North Carolina ICW)
The Problem – This problem stretch was dredged in late January – February of 2012. In the fall of 2013, we are receiving consistent reports of MLW shoaling near markers #80 and #81 in the 5 1/2 foot range! This worst of this shoaling is taking place on the ocean (southeastern) side of the Waterway channel.
The Solution – Time their passage through these waters for mid to high tide, and take note of any new, uncharted or relocated markers, particularly #81, placed to warn of the shoaling reported above. For the moment, favor the red/mainland (northern and northwestern) side of the passage, passing close by marker #80, when traversing the stretch between markers #80A and #82.
