Hell Gate

Posted by admin | Posted on 05-15-2009

Hell Gate
(Statute Mile 602, Georgia ICW)

The Problem: Hell Gate was dredged during the summer of 2009, and for a time all was well. HOWEVER, reports starting in May, 2009 and running through the fall of 2013, indicate that shoaling has reappeared here, particularly along the edges of the channel. One reports places depths near marker #87 as little as 4 1/2 feet, but most report MLW soundings of around 5 feet. Undoubtedly, without dredging, things will continue to deteriorate as time progresses!

The Solution: Time your passage through Hell Gate for mid to high tide

Little Mud River

Posted by admin | Posted on 05-14-2009

Little Mud River
(Statute Mile 655, Georgia ICW)

The Problem: The Little Mud River section of the ICW, particularly the section just north of the Waterway’s intersection with Altamaha Sound, is universally considered to be the WORST single stretch of the AICW, and this assessment is till very much the case as of August, 2012

The Solution:Time your passage through Little Mud River for high tide – NO FOOLING!

Jekyll Creek

Posted by admin | Posted on 05-13-2009

Jekyll Creek
(Statute Mile 683, Georgia ICW)

The Problem: Shoaling continues to plague the AICW channel as of summer, 2013 north of the Jekyll Island bridge near marker #19

The Solution: Be sure to pass NO MORE than 20 or 30 feet west of marker #19!!! We also advise traversing this section of the Waterway at mid to high tide.

AICW Channel Through Cumberland Dividings

Posted by Claiborne Young | Posted on 05-13-2009

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!
