  • Shoaling Reported at Matanzas Inlet Problem Stretch, AICW Statute Mile 793

    This Problem Stretch was dredged back in 2012, but it seems to be filling in again exactly where Skipper Dammeyer reports. See http://cruisersnet.net/?p=84969 for an earlier report.

    Larry,
    Please forward this as appropriate. While North bound rounding the big bend at Ft Matanzas at about a boat length from 81A we hit hard with 5′ draft at low tide. We slide over the bump with our wing keel. Cruisers should favor the Reds according to Boat US. I’ve not read about a problem on the net. It’s probably time to post it as the North migration has begun.
    Rick Dammeyer
    Promise
    Catalina 445

    And this from Week 14 LNMs. Note: The USCG does not give a specific location, so their warning may or may not be the above Problem Stretch. The LNM does coincide with the above advice to favor the red side (west) of the channel.

    FLORIDA – AICW – TOLOMATO RIVER – PALM SHORES – MATANZAS RIVER: Shoaling
    The Coast Guard conducted soundings at low tide and found the center of the channel to be between 12 and 18 feet while on the east side of the channel is between 6 and 12 feet. Mariners are advised to transit the area with extreme caution and local knowledge is advised. Chart 11485 LNM: 14/15
