  • LNM: Bogue Inlet Buoys Re-established, AICW Statute Mile 227


    Bogue Inlet buoys were removed in May of 2017 and have now reset. Note that the Nav Aids affected are in the Inlet proper and not Bogue Inlet/AICW intersection which has been a shoaling Problem Stretch for years.

    NC – NEUSE RIVER TO MYRTLE GOVE SOUND – BOGUE INLET READ MORE!

    The new Bogue Inlet aids to navigation system has been reestablished and mariners are advised to consult Commander Coast Guard Fifth District Broadcast Notice to Mariners BNM 403-17 or contact Sector North Carolina Command Center (910) 343-2200 for additional guidance. Currently Bogue Inlet Lighted Buoy 1 (LLNR 29495) no longer marks safe passage for mariners and Bogue Inlet Buoy 1 (LLNR 29497) an unlighted green can buoy, has been established in approximate position 34-38-02.867N 077-06-13.528W. Bogue Inlet Buoy 2 (LLNR 29500) has been reestablished in approximate position 34-38-02.867N 077-06-13.528W to mark the entrance to Bogue Inlet. Mariners are advised to use caution while transiting this newly marked entrance to Bogue Inlet. Chart 11541 25/17

  • LNM: USACE Lock Procedures Prior and During Tropical Storms and Hurricanes

    Once again our thanks to Specialist Erica Skolte for this notice from the Jacksonville Office of the Corp of Engineers.

    Notice to Navigation Interests: NTN 2017-009 Tropical Storm and Hurricane Operations at Locks (Okeechobee Waterway and Canaveral Harbor) READ MORE!

    http://www.saj.usace.army.mil/Portals/44/docs/Navigation/Notices/NTN2017/NTN2017-009_TropicalStormandHurricaneOperationsatLocks.pdf

    Notice is given that 72 hours prior to a Tropical Storm or Hurricane making local landfall locks will be open 7 AM to 10 PM supporting vessel safe harbor passage. Lock operations will stop 8 hours prior to land fall as Rail Road and drawbridges will be lowered or rotated and locked into a secure position. It’s important that all vessels are at their intended destination before bridges are secured and passage across the waterway suspended.

    For Lock Operator safety the locks will:
    1. Stop locking vessels or working outdoors if lightning is observed within five miles of the lock and operations will not resume until lightning has not been seen in the area for 30 minutes.
    2. Stop locking vessels when winds exceed 35 MPH.

    After a storm it could be days or weeks before the waterway is reopen depending on damage to structures and how quickly debris creating navigation hazards can be removed.

    For up to date Lock information contact the shift operator 7 AM to 5 PM at:
    Canaveral Lock 321-783-5421
    St Lucie Lock & Dam 772-287-2665

  • LNM: 2017 Hurricane Information

    The 2017 hurricane season begins next week and, while most of you know these precautions and procedures well, it does not hurt to review.

    HURRICANE INFORMATION
    The hurricane season extends from June 1st through November 30th. Hurricanes can cause excessive damage to vessels and loss of life. To minimize these dangers, the following precautions should be taken by all mariners before getting underway during the hurricane season:   READ MORE!

    (a) Instruction of crew and passengers in location of emergency equipment and emergency procedures;
    (b) Pre-sailing check of vessel, machinery, and equipment for seaworthiness;
    (c) Installation of strong ground tackle;
    (d) Review of storm center evasion procedures;
    (e) Knowledge of nearest hurricane shelter or port; and
    (f) Constant radio watches on channel 16 VHF-FM and frequent monitoring of weather broadcasts.
    The civilian hurricane warning service for the North Atlantic is provided by the National Hurricane Center, Miami, Florida. The center collates ship, aircraft, radar, and satellite data to produce and issue tropical cyclone warnings and forecasts for the North Atlantic Ocean, including the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. A Tropical Cyclone Public Advisory (TCP) is issued every six hours, with intermediate bulletins provided as needed. For tropical storms and hurricanes threatening to cross the coast of the U.S., coastal warnings are issued to the public so that precautionary actions, including evacuation, can be initiated to minimize damage and loss of life.
    Four alerts are issued:
    (a) TROPICAL STORM WATCH – An announcement that sustained winds of 34 to 63 knots (39 to 73 mph or 63 to 118 km/hr) are possible within
    the specified area within 48 hours in association with a tropical, subtropical, or post-tropical cyclone.
    (b) TROPICAL STORM WARNING – An announcement that sustained winds of 34 to 63 knots (39 to 73 mph or 63 to 118 km/hr) are expected somewhere within the specified area within 36 hours in association with a tropical, subtropical, or post-tropical cyclone.
    (c) HURRICANE WATCH – An announcement that sustained winds of 64 knots (74 mph or 119 km/hr) or higher are possible within the specified area in association with a tropical, subtropical, or post-tropical cyclone. Because hurricane preparedness activities become difficult once winds reach tropical storm force, the hurricane watch is issued 48 hours in advance of the anticipated onset of tropical storm force winds.
    (d) HURRICANE WARNING – An announcement that sustained winds of 64 knots (74 mph or 119 km/hr) or higher are expected somewhere within the specified area in association with a tropical, subtropical, or post-tropical cyclone. Because hurricane preparedness activities become difficult once winds reach tropical storm force, the warning is issued 36 hours in advance of the anticipated onset of tropical-storm-force winds. The warning can remain in effect when dangerously high water or a combination of dangerously high water and waves continue, even though winds may be less than hurricane force. Additional information of interest to mariners is included in the Tropical Cyclone Forecast/Advisory (TCM) and the Tropical Cyclone Surface Wind Speed Probabilities (PWS) products. The TCM provides current and forecast storm positions, intensities, and wind fields out to 120 hours. The PWS provides probabilities of sustained wind speeds equal to or exceeding 34-, 50-, and 64-kt wind speed thresholds for select coastal and
    offshore locations Mariners are reminded that aids to navigation, particularly lighted and unlighted buoys, may be moved from charted position, damaged, destroyed, extinguished, or otherwise deemed discrepant as a result of hurricanes and storms. Mariners should not rely solely upon the position or operation of an aid to navigation, but also employ such other methods of determining position as may be available. Port Hurricane Conditions are set up by the COTP and will change as the threat of severe weather increases, or as a storm approaches a specific COTP Area of Responsibility. For COTP-specific Port Hurricane Conditions, you should review information provided under the Port Directory tab of http://homeport.uscg.mil
    Condition 4 – Hurricane Seasonal Alert. 01 June–30 November; port status: open.
    Condition Whiskey – Sustained Gale Force winds associated with Tropical Cyclone activity are predicted within 72 hours; port status: open.
    Condition X-Ray – Sustained Gale Force winds associated with Tropical Cyclone activity are predicted within 48 hours; port status: open.
    Condition Yankee – Sustained Gale Force winds associated with Tropical Cyclone activity are predicted within 24 hours; port status: restricted; vessel/facility control measures in effect.
    Condition Zulu – Sustained Gale Force winds associated with Tropical Cyclone activity are predicted within 12 hours; port status: closed to all vessel traffic and waterside activities except for activities approved by the COTP.
    Drawbridges along the coast may deviate from normal operating procedures. Drawbridges are authorized to remain closed upon approach of Gale Force winds of 34 knots or greater. Extended closure periods may be authorized up to 8 hours prior to arrival of Gale Force winds to facilitate evacuation of land traffic. Due to the uncertainty of hurricane movements and bridge closures, mariners are urged to seek passage through drawbridges well in advance of the arrival of Gale Force winds. LNM 21/17
