Northern Fields Cut - Click for Chartview
The intersection of Northern Fields Cut and the Wright River lies north of the intersection of the Waterway and the Savannah River. Shoaling there has always been an issue and even with last year’s dredging, shallow depths might be expected. However, Captain Poovey’s report brings more good news about recent depths.
I came through here today(10-8-13) from the North at 1:15 PM (two hours past high tide). I stayed very close (25′) to Green “47″ and stayed to the green side for over three hundred yards into the canal.
I saw nothing less the 17 feet of depth. I learned the hard way last year when I strayed to the Red side and found the bottom and $1,200 in prop repairs! Tough lesson.
