Fields Cut is always an area to approach cautiously and at mid to high tide. Our thanks to experienced cruiser Jim Healy for his observations and advice. See /163492 for more comments on markers in Fields Cut.
As of 10/24/2017 at 11h00, tide +6.0 ft, we saw 13.5 ft between the North entrance to Field’s Cut and G”47,” so about 7.5 ft at MLW. The entrance itself was 18 ft. R”48A” continues to appear off-station to the east, but HONOR FLOATING RED R”48A.” Pass east of R”48A.” Except for these two sandpiles, the rest of the cut was not a problem.
The south entrance of Fields Cut was 13.5 feet at +6.0 on the tide, so 7.5 feet at MLW.
Southbound, watch for strong cross-currents at the mouth of the Savannah River.
