We have been receiving AICW shallow water reports for time out of mind, centered on the Waterway channel south and west of McClellanville, South Carolina, to Awendaw Creek.
Now, our good friends, and SSECN strategic partners, Captains Mark and Diana Doyle, founders and owners of “On The Water ChartGuides” (http://www.onthewaterchartguides.com/), give us an updated, graphic report relaying what they discovered as they navigated through the Waterway south of McClellanville on 8/27/13.
NOTE THAT THE DOYLE’S SOUNDINGS WERE TAKEN NEAR HIGH TIDE, MEANING THAT YOU MUST SUBTRACT 4.7 FEET FROM THEIR SOUNDINGS TO DISCOVER WHAT MLW DEPTHS WOULD BE. As you will discover, there are a few spots southwest of marker #37 that would only carry as little as 5 to 5 1/2 feet at MLW!
Incidentally, Diana and Mark have just published a new edition of their immensely popular “ICW CruiseGuide.” Click on the book graphic to the above right for more details, and to place an order!
