  • Good Words for Bridge Pointe Marina, off the AICW, on the Trent/Neuse River, New Bern, NC


    Bridge Pointe Marina flanks the southern banks of the Trent River off the Neuse River, opposite the downtown New Bern, NC waterfront.

    BridgePointe Marina is the bomb!
    It’s been a year since I left Bridge Pointe Marina and I’m missing my time there. It’s a really well built and well managed marina with a nice bunch of boaters including some locals and liveaboards who will welcome you to Sunday night pot lucks. It’s also a very good place to leave a boat for the winter, as I did, and I also enjoyed the town of New Bern when I was around.

  • FOCUS ON: Morehead City Yacht Basin, AICW Statute Mile 203


    A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, Morehead City Yacht Basin, located on the southern flank of the marked channel that runs west from Mile 203 of the Waterway, just north of the Morehead-Beaufort, Newport River high-rise bridge.

    The Yacht Basin was originally built in 1946. It started out as a pier and a building with an office, lounge with lockers, and a storage room. Around 1952, Bump Styron bought the Yacht Basin and added two piers. The Yacht Basin has always had close ties to the boating and fishing in Morehead City including the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament that started in 1957. Bump himself won the tournament in 1970 aboard the “Reel King”. Legend has it that even Ernest Hemmingway at one time fished for marlin out of the Yacht Basin.
    mcyb
    The Morehead City Yacht Basin has always been known for its customer service. James Hester, pictured below, greeted boaters for over fifty years and customers still come in and tell stories about his smiling, friendly service.
    mcyb3
    Today the Morehead City Yacht Basin provides dockage both to slip owners, renters, and transients traveling up and down the ICW. With Mike Pollard as the head dockmaster for close to ten years the tradition of excellent customer service has continued. We have a very comfortable lounge for our guests and we are a short walk to over twenty great restaurants.

    In 2014, Jet Matthews tripled the size of the Morehead City Yacht Basin with modern floating docks, 87 large interior slips, and over 1,250 feet of side tie dockage to accommodate vessels up to 200 ft with 30/50/100 amp power and 2 x 100 amp pedestals.

  • Channel Shift in Lockwoods Folly/AICW Intersection, Problem Stretch Statute Mile 321


    The intersection of the ICW and Lockwoods Folly has been a Problem Stretch for years and requires almost annual dredging. Recent reports confirm shoaling here, http://cruisersnet.net/154017. SSECN stills recommends Mid to high tide for passage through Lockwoods Folly. Kudos to Carolina Yacht Care for their nightly briefings on weather and navigation issues and our thanks to Hank Pomeranz for this report.

    Hi Gentlemen,
    We’ve started our nightly briefs here at Southport covering the waterway north of here to MM 0. Hearing from a bunch of folks having problems with Lockwoods Folly – just south of Southport.
    Suggest reiterating that cruisers follow the marks carefully. G47, in particular, was just moved west and is very close to the shore. That said, mariners must follow it for plenty of deep water. Do not get sucked in to the R12 which will be to starboard for north bound cruisers. That is an inlet buoy.
    I don’t know if you can somehow share the attached image but you are welcome to use it. The depth legend for the USACE survey is shown and the depths represent MLLW. A pic is worth…
    Regards to you all,
    Hank

    New boating course a team effort

    Contributed article
    Published: Monday, April 18, 2016 at 11:16 a.m.
    NC_Wilmington –

    Thanks to a recent fusion of resources from the Cape Fear Community College, Wilmington Water Tours LLC, and the Cape Fear Sail and Power Squadron, local boaters have access to a modern, comprehensive, shore- and water- based learning experience.

    The program would not exist without all three players. CFCC has the superbly equipped, large, centrally located lecture spaces needed to accommodate three-times-a-year classes of 30 to 50 students participating in what is known as America’s Boating Course. Wilmington Water Tours operates the course’s “floating classroom,” a catamaran named the Wilmington that can comfortably host up to 45 students at a time. The Cape Fear Sail and Power Squadron provides the certified experienced instructors, the practical expertise and the instructional materials needed to complete the effort.

    The course begins in downtown Wilmington with a day of classes, capped by a state-sponsored certification test in CFCC’s Union Station building. The classes touch on all aspects of boating safety – including required equipment, basic boat handling, weather hazards, signals, lights and rules of the road – and practical tips drawn from the experiences of veteran instructors.

    The next session of America’s Boating Course will begin on May 14th. For more information, see www.capefearboatingcourse.org.

    Coastal Conservation Association North Carolina Names
    TowBoatUS Capt. Lee Sykes Volunteer of the Year
    “Chapter Would Remain A Vibrant Voice for Coastal Fisheries Conservation”

    RALEIGH, NC, April 18, 2016 – At its recent annual meeting, the State Board of Directors for the Coastal Conservation Association North Carolina (CCA NC) named local on water towing Captain and TowBoatUS Beaufort owner Lee Sykes “Volunteer of the Year.”

    An advocate for coastal fisheries and owner of a local 24-hour on water recreational boat towing and assistance company, Sykes is the CCA NC President of the Crystal Coast Chapter and is credited with “Revitalizing this chapter and bringing it back as a significant contributor to our efforts in North Carolina,” said Chapter Member and CCA NC Board Member Bert Owens. The chapter is one of 13 in North Carolina. “He was determined that the Crystal Coast Chapter would remain a vibrant voice for coastal fisheries conservation in North Carolina.”

    “I’m honored to have been selected,” Said Sykes. “I’m out on our waters nearly every day and believe that everyone needs to do their part. I’ve always wanted to ensure that my own child will continue to have a vibrant fishery for her generation, and our coastal waters continue to provide a quality fishing experience that doesn’t diminish.”

    Part of a nationwide network of 300 locations and over 600 towboats, Sykes’ TowBoatUS business is North Carolina’s largest, providing 24-hour on water towing assistance and soft ungrounding services to recreational boaters, much like a reliable auto club. It also offers salvage services. In addition to Beaufort, Sykes’ additional TowBoatUS locations include Swansboro, Jordon Lake, Falls Lake, Sharon Harris Lake, Gaston Lake, Kerr Lake, Smith Mountain Lake VA, and most recently High Rock Lake.

    CCA and its state-chapter network are engaged in hundreds of local, state and national programs and projects related to marine conservation, including initiating scientific studies, funding marine science scholarships, building artificial reefs, creating finfish hatcheries, initiating hydrologic and contaminant studies, monitoring the quality and quantity of freshwater inflows, supporting local marine law enforcement and more.

    #1: You’ve probably already heard the cardinal rule of docking a boat: Never approach the pier any faster than you’re willing to hit it. In other words, you never know when a sudden “oopsie” will cause your precious fiberglass chariot to do the opposite of what you had intended. Just in case, always approach solid objects slowly enough that if your docking job turns into a ramming, the results won’t be tragic.

    #2: Use enough juice to get the job done. When it comes to causes of disastrous docking, applying insufficient power comes in a close second to applying too much. You need to counter and overcome momentum, wind, and current. If you don’t tell your boat what to do—with authority—one or more of these other factors is likely to take over.

    #3: Always look before you leap. Give your slip a hairy eyeball, even if you’ve backed into it 100 times before. The biggest issue here is mooring lines. If any lines of yours or a neighboring slip fell off a piling and into the water, current could stretch it out across your path. Tangle a mooring line in your propeller, and that docking job will go south in a hurry.

    #4: With twin inboards, don’t touch the wheel. Ever. You’ll be tempted, but you have more control if you leave the wheel centered and use only the engines. If you do turn the wheel, then when you try to use the engines and the prop-wash hits a cockeyed rudder, the boat may take an unexpected path.

    #5: In heavy winds, reduce your windage. Particularly in a small boat, this can have a dramatic effect on how easy or how hard it is to dock. A Bimini top or an Isinglass enclosure can act like a sail on a powerboat, and throw you out of kilter. On a sailboat, a sail lazily left unfurled can have the same effect.

    #6: Never kill the engines until all the lines are secure. Many people who don’t know how to dock a boat well make the mistake of shutting down as soon as the boat is in the slip, but you never know if a crewmember is going to drop his or her line(s), or when a piling will slip out of reach. Keep the powerplants on, so you can maneuver as necessary.

    #7: Don’t be afraid to abort. This is especially important for sailboats, single-screw inboards, and other boats with a limited ability to maneuver. If the approach doesn’t seem to be going well don’t try to force the issue; instead, circle back for another try.

    # 8: Learn how to dock a boat using fenders that are placed with precision. There’s more to this than merely hanging the fenders over the side; you need to judge where the boat will kiss a piling, and how to orient the fenders so they don’t get caught under the pier or swing freely above it. Position them properly and you’ll find that even the best boaters in the world can do a better job of damage-free docking, with the pressure-points protected.

    #9: When docking any type of single-engine boat, always turn the wheel before applying power—not during or after. That way, you won’t get a blast of forward or reverse before the blast of port or starboard kicks in.

    #10: Always apply short bursts of power, instead of steady power. This allows you to maneuver without building up a lot of momentum, which can quickly get out of control.

  • Maintenance on US64 Twin Bridge Across Croatan Sound, NC

    Croatan Sound connects Albemarle Sound to the north and Pamlico Sound to the south via a broad channel crossed by two sets of fixed bridges. The older, northernmost span has a vertical clearance of 45ft, and has LONG been the bane of sailors who must use the far more difficult Roanoke Sound – Old House channel to cruise south from the AICW/Albemarle Sound to Pamlico Sound, or the other way around. The southernmost twin Highway 64 bridges, where this maintenance will take place, feature 66ft of vertical clearance.

    NC – CROATAN SOUND –DARE COUNTY – BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION
    Mariners are advised to take caution and proceed slowly when approaching the construction site of the fender replacement on Bridge #9 across the Croatan Sound in Dare County on US64 Business, Old Mann’s Harbor Bridge. To help facilitate the repair of bridge fender system, on May 2, 2016 through August 15, 2016 during daylight hours. Two barges will be placed on Croatan Sound along with several small floats. The barges are approximately 30’x115’ and will be positioned to minimize, as much as possible, any disruption to the waterway. All construction equipment be
    removed from the waterway channel at the end of the workday and properly lighted for storage each night. The onsite work supervisor can be contacted on VHF-FM channels 13 and 16 for communication. Mariners are urged to transit the area with caution at slow no wake speeds. Chart 12204 LNM 11/16

  • Typical Shoaling Reported in Hatteras Inlet, Pamlico Sound, NC


    Hatteras Inlet lies well off the Waterway, on the eastern edge of Pamlico Sound. This narrow, unstable seaward passage cuts the southern reaches of Hatteras Island and the northern strands of Ocracoke Island. We have had Navigation Alerts posted in this inlet for some time (http://cruisersnet.net/?p=76962 and http://cruisersnet.net/?p=76962) and, despite recent dredging (http://cruisersnet.net/?p=123320), we still advise that no one attempt to make use of this inlet channel without very specific local knowledge!

    Mariners are advised that an area of shoaling has been reported in the Hatteras Inlet between buoys 4 (LLNR 28650) and 5 (LLNR 28653) with an approximate dept of 2 feet at mean low tide. The report indicated shoaling is encroaching approximately 80 percent of the channel. Mariners are urged to use caution when transiting this area.
