  • NASA and USCG: How to View the 2017 Solar Eclipse Safely

    Very good advice from the folks who know!

    Looking directly at the sun is unsafe except during the brief total phase of a solar eclipse (“totality”), when the moon entirely blocks the sun’s bright face, which will happen only within the narrow path of totality.
    The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses” or hand-held solar viewers. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun; they transmit thousands of times too much sunlight.

    Coast Guard stresses safety surrounding Eclipse

    CHARLESTON, S.C. – The Coast Guard, in coordination with federal, state, and local partners, is stressing public safety for the upcoming eclipse on August 21, 2017.

    “With anticipation and excitement for the historic eclipse passing through the Charleston area, the Coast Guard wants to highlight the importance of safety and preparedness for those enjoying the waterways here in the Low Country,” said Cmdr. Nick Wong, the Sector Charleston Deputy Commander.

    The Coast Guard’s key concerns are:

    Boating Safety & Navigation Rules of the Road: A surge in people and vessels is expected on the waterways in Charleston harbor and throughout South Carolina. It is crucial for operators, recreational and commercial, to follow the navigational “Rules of the Road,” which include having a proper lookout and displaying the appropriate light and sound signals at all times. All mariners are expected to be vigilant and exercise prudent seamanship, especially in congested waterways. Additional information on Boating Safety can be found here.

    Preparedness: Planning is a key to success on the water. Boaters are encouraged to plan for delays and increased traffic. Coast Guard, federal, state and local first responders are standing by to assist those in distress; however, we rely on mariners to actively plan and prepare. Part of planning for every voyage should include a float plan, which can be easily filed through the Coast Guard App available on your smart phone. Always remember safety equipment such as distress signals and life jackets.

    Safety of Charter Operations: Any vessel engaged in carrying passengers-for-hire must be operated by a Coast Guard licensed captain who is enrolled in a Drug and Alcohol Testing Program, and the vessel must meet the applicable safety regulations for commercial operations. Vessels carrying over 6 passengers, at least one for hire, are required to be inspected by the Coast Guard and hold a valid Certificate of Inspection prior to operations. Vessel operators and owners who are not in compliance with applicable regulations are subject to significant civil and criminal penalties. Additional information on Passenger Vessel Safety Program can be found here.

  • Bob and Ann Sherer Report on the Dawho River, AICW Statute Mile 497


    For several years Cruisers’ Net has had reports of shallow water encountered near the eastern end of the Waterway’s passage through South Carolina’s Dawho River between the North and South Edisto Rivers. Our thanks to authors Bob and Ann Sherer for sharing their observations on the erroneous magenta line in this section. The Sherers have just released the 2017 edition of their ICW Cruising Guide, see http://cruisersnet.net/166170.

    Hi Larry,
    I wrote an article about a 5.5 MLW route through the shallows of the east entrance into the Dawho River, a notoriously shallow area of the ICW south of Charleston. READ MORE!

    It’s also where the magenta line can lead you astray as far as finding the deepest water. The article might be of interest to your readers so I’ve included a link if you think that’s the best way of presenting the information.

    Here’s the link to the article:

  • Report from Problem Stretch south of McClellanville, AICW Statute Miles 430-433


    The waterway passing McClellanville all the way to the Ben Sawyer Bridge has been shoaling for years. And, as Phillip Mullins advises, SSECN still recommends mid to high tide for passage through this section.

    Good water up to Jeremy Creek, then you have to wait at least 1 hr. after low tide. Stayed on magenta line all the way to red day mark 42. I draw 5 ft and came through 2 spots that were 4.8 ft but was able to plow through. Rest of the time had 6.0 ft or better. If you are not comfortable with this, I suggest you wait until 2 hrs after low tide.

    VHF 16 & 68   Located on the Sampit River, Harborwalk Marina is only a boardwalk away from Georgetown's Historic District, great food, shopping, etc. A safe harbor from bad weather and located in calm
    Georgetown, South Carolina

    Georgetown and Harborwalk Marina, both SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSORS, continue to do everything possible to make your visit a special one. Located on the Sampit River, Harborwalk Marina is only a boardwalk away from Georgetown’s Historic District for history, entertainment, great food and shopping.

    Enjoy Georgetown – a great stop. As with any cruising along the GA, SC and NC coasts, be mindful of tides and follow markers carefully. We strongly recommend Harbor Walk Marina in Georgetown – pet friendly for sure and immaculate restrooms/showers. Be sure to tell Chris, the owner/dockmaster, hello from Midas Touch.

  • Elske Visits Windmill Harbour Marina, AICW Statute Mile 558

    Windmill Harbour Marina, Hilton Head SC

    Be sure to see FOCUS ON Windmill Harbour Marina, A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, which is located on Skull Creek, on the shores of Hilton Head Island. Our thanks to David and Jacquelyn for sharing their delightful blog.

    After successfully navigating the challenging Fields Cut, we enjoyed immensely our first day on South Carolina rivers.
    Elske is now berthed at Windmill Harbour, Hilton Head, South Carolina. She will reside here for the month of June.
    Windmill Harbour is a lock-controlled harbour which means it is about as safe a boat could be. There are no tides or current. Barnacles don’t grow in this harbour. Elske is very happy here.
    We are looking forward to exploring Hilton Head Island during our sojourn here.
