  • “All Aboard Florida” Public Meetings to Begin October 27, 2014

    Boat U.S.All Aboard Florida has been on concerned boaters’ minds for several months this year and our postings have included this important USCG survey: http://cruisersnet.net/?p=144297. A big thank you to BoatUS, A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, for providing us with a list of the public meetings scheduled for public forums on the issue. Boaters are urged to attend and be heard!

    Will Plans for New Rail Service Affect Your Boating?

    BoatUS Asks Boaters to Speak Up at Public Meetings or Provide Written Comments by Nov. 1

    TALLAHASSEE, Fl., October 24, 2014 — Under plans for a new passenger rail service along Florida’s Atlantic Coast from Miami to Orlando, waterway drawbridge closings along the proposed route would become more frequent. The new passenger rail service, known as All Aboard Florida, would offer hourly trains starting in the early morning and ending in the late evening, requiring additional bridge closings on waterways used by boaters in the nation’s #1 boating state. This includes the New River, Loxahatchee River and St. Lucie River. Up to 32 scheduled railroad drawbridge closings per day could last up to 25 minutes each.

    Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) urges boaters and anglers potentially affected by the proposal to have their voice heard at one of eight public meetings held by the US Federal Railroad Administration scheduled for October and November, or to provide their written comments to the U.S. Coast Guard by November 1.

  • More Good Words for Ladys Island Marina, AICW Statute Mile 536.5, in Beaufort, SC

    Over the last three years, Ladys Island Marina has been undergoing big improvements in the marina portion of this property under the direction of owner, Kelly Ryan, and these improvements have been confirmed by the recent positive comments SSECN has received. Ladys Island Marina is located in Factory Creek just east of Ladys Island Bridge.

    Thanx, Larry, that spot [Jekyll Creek] has been troublesome forever. I’m glad you found our observations useful; we’ve gotten so much assistance from this site over the years that its wonderful to be in a position to pay it back, and keep Claiborne’s vision alive.
    BTW, can’t say enough good things about Lady’s Island marina (SM536). Quiet, well-maintained, many services within easy walking distance (groceries, hardware store, liquor store, nice bakery and many restaurants, etc). Very accomodating management/dockmaster Steve is going cruising, new dockmaster TJ started on Monday and he’s clearly committed to carrying on the cruiser-friendly tradition. Loaner car and/or bikes. A ***woodshop*** for doing boat projects!!! Longish walk or short bike ride across the swing bridge to historic downtown.
    We’re waiting on a part for our autopilot, expected in next Friday. We’ll be staying another week, then if weather permits we’ll be doing a single overnight and bypassing Georgia.

  • Young’s Yarns: “The House of the Beckoning Hands Legend”

    Here is another Claiborne’s Yarns so appropriate for this Halloween season!

    Somewhere along this coastline was once located the “House of the Beckoning Hands.” Many ghost stories are set along the North Carolina coast, but there is perhaps no more pitiful tale than “The Beckoning Hands,” as related by Charles Harry Whedbee in “Outer Banks Mysteries and Seaside Stories.”
    The tale begins with the construction of a beautiful stone house on a high bluff overlooking the Chowan River. The builder was none other than an infamous pirate. He perceived that his new home would be a secure hiding place, since it commanded a wide view both up and down the great river. It seems that the pirate had a young wife who did not approve of his lawless ways.

    Soon after the house was finished, she and her daughter moved to Charleston, where they lived until the buccaneer’s death. Even as the magnificent edifice was being built, the pirate became the unhappy recipient of a strange curse. Legend tells that he kidnapped the only son of an old hag from Nags Head who was rumored to be a witch. It was not long before the boy was killed in attack by pirates. The old woman cursed the pirate and said that since she would never have grandchildren, neither would he.

    Following the brigand’s death, his widow and her lovely daughter, Caroline, moved back to the house. In a few years, Caroline became engaged, and the ceremony was set for the bride’s home. As the service was about to begin, Caroline appeared atop the great stairs and coyly beckoned her groom to come catch her if he could. Taking to the innocent game, he bounded up the stairs, but his bride was nowhere to be found. That was the last anyone saw of Caroline as a living being. Her grief stricken mother soon moved away, and the house was closed for many years.

    Before long, it began to be whispered that the old home was haunted. Children reported seeing a ghostly visage flitting from window to window on New Year’s Eve, always beckoning with white hands. The stone mansion became known as the “House of the Beckoning Hands.”

    The mystery remained unsolved until modern times. A famous ghost hunter finally undertook to lay the matter to rest. While awaiting the apparition on New Year’s Eve, he fell asleep and had a strange dream. In his dream, he saw the long-ago wedding day. After Caroline beckoned to her groom, the investigator saw her run down the upstairs hall and trip over her wedding gown. As she put out her hands for support, a portion of the wall gave way, tipped her through, and then snapped back into place. Caroline was entombed alive in a secret room!
    Startled awake by the intensity of his dream, the investigator ran upstairs. Sure enough, the wall opened just as he had seen in his dream. He beheld the pitiful figure of a small skeleton still anointed by a bit of bridal lace. The remains were given a Christian burial.

    Perhaps Caroline’s spirit was at last laid to rest.

  • More from the Lunsford Log: NC Waterway, Statute Miles 210-330

    We are very grateful to the Lunsfords for sharing their observations of the North Carolina Waterway. Remember that on our Homepage you can enter each statute mile mentioned into the ST.M./LAT-LON WIDGET and bring up a chart of the exact area discussed below. Several of the spots mentioned have been designated Problem Stretches on Cruisers’Net and their sites are listed below.

    Delighted to be able to help, after all the assistance we’ve gotten from you over the years. This is a little bit older, we posted it on Facebook on Oct 8, having transited North Carolina during the previous 2 weeks. We’re hanging out in Beaufort for a couple of weeks for insurance restrictions, after 1 November we’ll head to Florida. If weather permits we’ll go outside overnight, otherwise, we’ll update you on conditions in Georgia.

    We’ve just done the ICW through North Carolina from Beaufort/Morehead City on down toward Myrtle Beach, SC. We have a few passage notes for those following. Mostly it was a very easy trip with plenty of water, most of the traditional trouble inlets have been recently dredged.
    Mile 210-ish, daymarks 9-11, stay to the red side of the channel if it gets shoal.
    Mile 227, Bogue Inlet – this traditional trouble spot was dredged Feb 2014, no issues.
    Mile 237, Brown’s Inlet – There are 3 marks here that look like they are in a straight line, Red 60, Green 61A and Green 63. The marks are NOT off-station, you will sweep a wide lazy “S” turn around them. Stay close to R60 (20 feet off) then stay to the red side, or no further than mid-channel, from G61A to G63.

    (See http://cruisersnet.net/?p=144468)

    Mile 246, New River Inlet – Favor the red side between Red 72A and Red 72B. Get close to R72B before you turn (I call it “squaring the corner”) and you will find 9 feet MLLW.
    Mile 270, marker 99A – it’s way over to the side of the channel, favor the red side over near the boat dock.

    (New Topsail Inlet/AICW, see http://cruisersnet.net/?p=144470 and http://cruisersnet.net/?p=144976)

    Mile 293, Carolina Beach Inlet – this traditional trouble spot was recently dredged, no issues.
    Mile 321, Lockwood’s Folly Inlet – recently dredged Feb 2014, and well-marked with cans that may not be on your chart. Make sure to follow the ICW marks (with the gold squares or triangles) and not the inlet markers, there is plenty of water.
    Mile 330, Shallotte Inlet – this traditional trouble spot is recently dredged March 2014, no issues, we saw nothing less than 9.5 feet MLLW.

  • Report on Southport’s Free City Dock, AICW Statute Mile 309

    Although seldom mentioned, Southport, NC does have a free (48 hours) city dock as described below. Southport is also home to SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, Southport Marina, located just west of the Cape Fear River along the northern banks of the Waterway hard by flashing daybeacon #2A. This reminder comes to us from Hank Pomeranz of Carolina Yacht Care.

    “The City of Southport, NC, always a transient friendly destination, now allows transient boaters to use the free city dock for 48 hours instead of 24 hours. Since most transients arrive late in the day and generally leave in the morning hours, the old 24 hour policy did not allow time for provisioning or visiting the city. Visitors should check in with the police station when they arrive. The phone number is: 910-457-7913.
    As you enter the Yacht Basin, the City Dock will be to port (opposite the restaurants). It is the T-Head on the outermost (closest to the ICW) dock.”
    Thanks
    Hank Pomeranz

    And we have this description of the free dock from our good friends, Chuck Baier and Susan Landry in a 2013 review of Southport:

    At the end of a long dock at the west end of the basin is the town dock where you can tie up for free for 48 hours. There is water on the dock and a 20-amp power outlet if you can make it work for the boat. Depths at the town dock can be 4 feet at low tide and with the tidal range, climbing onto the dock at low tide can be a challenge. Boaters do offer to allow others to raft up at the dock and it is much deeper even just a boat width off.

  • Report from Ashepoo-Coosaw Cutoff, AICW Problem Stretch Mile 517

    This report comes to us from Dan and Jaye Lunsford’s log of their voyage through South Carolina, see http://cruisersnet.net/?p=145002. And, as reported by our good friends Mark and Diana Doyle: For those transiting South Carolina, Ashepoo Coosaw Cutoff continues to be a problem area and carries LESS THAN 5 FEET MLLW. For an alternative to Ashepoo-Coosaw Cutoff, see http://cruisersnet.net/?p=134342

    SM 517 Ashepoo-Coosaw Cutoff: Stay at least a couple of boat lengths off G177 at the entry (“square the corner”) for 10′ MLLW. At the exit, R184 was reported destroyed; a new temporary drop aid (floating can) was placed there on Friday — we met the Coast Guard small boat that was doing the work on their way back. Slightly favor that NW side between R184 and G185, but time the tides if necessary, we saw 5′ MLLW here briefly.
