AICW Channel Through Cumberland Dividings

AICW Channel Through Cumberland Dividings
Statute Mile 704, Georgia AICW

The Problem: The Waterway channel near the southern tip of the “Cumberland Dividings, just north of where the AICW intersects the southerly reaches of the Brickhill River, has multiple problems. First, some charts and chartplotters show the magenta fairway line running on the western side of the red markers in this area. Those who blindly follow this erroneous magenta line will run aground every time. Also, and perhaps even worse, the Waterway is shoaling badly along its western flank, north of marker #63.

The Solution: Time your passage through these waters for mid to high tide. FOR THE MOMENT (subject to change WITHOUT NOTICE), heavily favor the easterly side of the channel between #59A and #60A. Be on the lookout for missing, temporary or uncharted markers along this stretch, and carefully observe any which are spotted. Proceed with MAXIMUM caution, and be SURE to read the remarks of our fellow cruisers who have recently passed through this AICW stretch, by clicking the “Click Here For Updates and To See What Your Fellow Cruisers Are Saying About the AICW Channel Through the Cumberland Dividings” link below!
