Captain Jones passes along a warning of obstacles along the AICW’s trek down Alligator River at Statute Mile 99.5, north of the Alligator/Pungo Canal .
The only other item was many stumps in the Alligator River between 33 and 35 green. I did not see any but most other boats either hit one or saw one. I hit one last year and bent a blade. It was announced on 22 by CG. We have 59 x 46 5 bladed Rolla props so what we hit was significant. I never saw anything and we were watching.

If anyone can answer Captains Mark and Emily’s question below, please click the “Comment on This Posting/Marina/Anchorage/Bridge” link below, and share your information.
I was just wondering if any of the reporting captains had any guidance on how to avoid the stumps? If they are submerged, it would seem the only way to avoid them would be a better description of where they are. Or, did I miss a post somewhere?
