    • South Channel Anchorage

      South Channel Anchorage
      Statute Mile: 843
      Lat/Lon: near 29 03.557 North/080 54.846 West
      Location: north-northeast of the ICW’s flashing daybeacon #19
      Minimum Depth: 7-feet
      Special Note: shoaling at the intersection of South Channel and the AICW is now making successful entrance into this anchorage difficult, and these waters host strong tidal currents. We are downgrading our estimate of this overnight haven to “emergency only” status
      Swing Room: sufficient room for vessels as large as 55 feet
      Foul Weather Protection: Poor; fair weather anchorage only

        Tide moves too fast and there is bad shoaling. Boats go through sideways during a flow. Hit bottom 2 times with 5.8 keel, then finally got through with local help. You would be safer crossing the gulf stream with a north wind.
