  • Offshore Towers a Hazard, South Carolina to Cape Canaveral

    This is a Local Notice to Mariners for our cruising brethren who choose to avoid shallow parts of the Ditch by going offshore. These unlighted towers are roughly 40 nautical miles off the coasts of South Carolina and Georgia, from St. Catherines Sound to Cumberland Island.

    There are eight (8) offshore U.S. Navy Aircraft Towers charted as lighted. The towers are not lighted, they are no longer used, not maintained and in very poor condition. The towers pose a hazard to navigation and are slated for removal in the future.

  • More on Continued Shoaling at AICW/Bakers Haulover Intersection Problem Stretch, Statute Mile 1080

    AICW/Bakers Haulover Intersection – Click for Chartview

    This section of the Eastern Florida Waterway has long been designated as an AICW Problem Stretch due to persistent shoaling, as well as having a Navigation Alert due to a relocated marker at the southern end of AICW/Bakers Haulover Inlet intersection.
    Note the use of the description “severe shoaling” in the article below, cherry picked from the latest Local Notice to Mariners! Clearly, captains whose vessels draws 3 feet or more should time their passage of these troubled waters for mid to high tide!

    The Coast Guard has received a report of severe shoaling in the Intracoastal Waterway in the vicinity of Bakers Haulover Inlet. The shoal is encroaching the channel from the east in between Biscayne Bay Buoy 7A (LLNR 47824) and Biscayne Bay Buoy 7B (LLNR 47828). Depths of less than 4ft have been reported during low tide near the center of the channel. Mariners are advised to exercise extreme caution when transiting the area. Chart 11467

    July 15, 2013
    Tide was dead low and I cleared the channel with my 40′ Azimut with a 4 ft. draft. There was a 70′ Azimut that ran aground, he did not favor the greens. FAVOR THE GREEN!!

  • Aids to Navigation Battery Theft, St. Johns River, Sanford to DeBary, FL

    The Coast Guard is requesting our assistance in apprehending the culprits in the removal of batteries from navigational aids in the St. Johns River. PLEASE report any info you may have on this truly dumb stunt to the USCG at 386-427-3227.

    FLORIDA-ST JOHNS RIVER: Stolen Equipment.
    ATLANTIC BEACH, Fla. – The Coast Guard is seeking information from the public about the theft of four batteries since the end of April from federally owned navigational aids in the St. Johns River from Sanford, Fla., to DeBary, Fla.
    Non-functioning navigational aids, or aids that are functioning improperly, can endanger mariners who rely on them for safe navigation and may cause accidents.Each battery weighs approximately 40 pounds and costs $106.86. Navigational aids are essential in assisting mariners transiting waterways throughout the country.
    Federal law prohibits vandalism of aids to navigation. Depending on the nature of the violation, persons could face maximum penalties upon conviction of up to 10 years imprisonment and as much as a $250,000 fine.
    Mariners who observe vandalism to navigational aids, have more information about the stolen batteries, or who want to report nonfunctioning aids, may contact Petty Officer 1st Class Joseph Holt, the officer in charge of Aids to Navigation Team Ponce De Leon Inlet in New Smyrna Beach,
    Fla., at 386-427-3227.

    There’s only one word for these incredibly stupid idiots. KEELHAULED!!

  • Shoaling in St. Lucie River, Okeechobee Waterway, Statute Mile 1, Stuart, FL, 5/18/2014

    St. Lucie Shoaling – Click for Chartview

    This shoaling is in a section known as Hell Gate just west of Sewall Point at the mouth of the St. Lucie River and near the easternmost section of the Okeechobee Waterway. The coordinates given in the Notice put the temporary buoy 17A in the middle of Sewall Point, but we have to assume it is near the charted green marker #17. Since the shoaling (charted) is encroaching from the west, favoring the green side of the channel is your best bet.

    The Coast Guard has established St Lucie River Temp Buoy 17A in position 27-11-02.516N/080-11 49.228W. The Buoy marks a shoal that is encroaching the St Lucie River from the west. Mariners are urged to use caution while transiting the area.
    Chart 11428

    That shoal has been encroaching VERY slowly for many years. It is high time NOAA revised the double dashed channel line; they should have ten years ago!
