    Good thoughts on safe boating from SCDNR.

    Back to Basics . . .
    by David Lucas

    Boating Safety should be the business of everyone that plans to spend time on the water.

    You might guess that someone who’s spent as many years as I have working for the S.C Department of Natural Resources would be an expert boater, but you’d be wrong. Growing up, my family didn’t own a boat, and when we’d got the chance to go out fishing or riding on the lake, it was generally with someone else — friends or extended family. Later in life, even though boating held some interest for me, there was always something else that was more of a priority to spend the time and money on. So, boating experiences were fairly few and far between, and almost always involved someone else at the controls. That’s actually the case for many adults who take up boating later in life, and for those folks in particular, a solid grounding in the basics of safe boating is key to enjoying their new hobby.

  • SCDNR Offering Courtesy Boat Inspections, May 27-29, 2017


    SCDNR to offer courtesy boat inspections during Memorial Day weekend READ MORE!

    In an effort to keep people and waterways safe during Memorial Day weekend, the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR) Law Enforcement Division will once again be conducting courtesy boat inspections at certain public boat landings around the state. Memorial Day weekend is one of the year’s busiest weekends on state waters, and officers want to do everything possible to keep boaters out of harm’s way during the holiday.

    SCDNR officers will perform quick but thorough inspections for required safety equipment and proper boat and motor registration. Those who are not in compliance with safety regulations or registration requirements will not be ticketed during the complimentary inspections. Instead, they will be given an opportunity to correct the problem before they launch their boat. SCDNR officers will also be available to answer questions and give boaters tips on how to stay safe on the water.

    To report boating violations such as reckless operation or an intoxicated boat operator, call the SCDNR toll-free, 24-hour hotline at 1-800-922-5431. For a copy of South Carolina’s boating regulations, to find out about local boating safety courses or to obtain a free float plan form, contact the SCDNR Boating Safety Office at 1-800-277-4301 or visit http://www.dnr.sc.gov/education/boated.html.

    Harborwalk Marina Expansion/Renovation
    Georgetown SC
    Harborwalk Marina of Georgetown, SC, will double its capacity to serve transient boaters on the Intracoastal
    Waterway with an expansion expected to be completed by September. Read More!

    The marina, an affiliate of Evening Post Industries located on the Sampit River at the foot of Queen Street in
    Georgetown, broke ground May 1 on the project that will add 825 linear feet of new floating dock that includes a
    new 100-foot fuel dock with new high-flow dispensers for gasoline and diesel.
    Improvements will also include a fuel hut on the dock for more convenient transactions, including ice and pump-out
    service, over 385 feet of new bulkhead and drainage allowing the marina to be dredged to 8 feet MLW, and
    improvements to parking and the marina building that will follow.
    “Harborwalk Marina accommodates over 1,600 individual boats a year,” said manager Chris Carroll. “This brings a
    major economic boost to the downtown Georgetown area. We are the closest marina to the downtown, and many of
    our customers shop and dine on Front Street.
    The marina, formerly known as Gulf Auto Docks, has been a Georgetown boating landmark for years. It was
    purchased by Evening Post Industries in 1989. It was renamed Harborwalk Marina in the mid-1990s. A major
    renovation in 2008 provided travelers with a new building offering climate-controlled showers, restrooms and
    laundry facilities, 725 linear feet of floating transient overnight dockage with WiFi, cable TV and clean municipal
    water seven days a week. With 7 to 12 feet of depth, the marina can accommodate vessels up to 200 feet. The
    building provides space to sell ice, batteries, oils, soaps, shirts, hats and boat supplies along with a wide porch and
    rocking chairs for travelers to enjoy the sunsets over Winyah Bay. Hours of operation are 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
    “We like to think, we are not the biggest marina on the ICW,” Carroll said, “but we are one of the best.”

    We have had a wonderful two days in Charleston at the City Marina! Read More!

    We have now done Fort Sumter, a horse carriage tour, City Market and some walking around. We were supposed to leave this morning, but the weather forecast was for a thunderstorm last night and today, and boy, did that materialize! We are on a C-Dory 25 Cruiser, and we had foolishly had left the side windows open. We had thunder and lightening all night, some rain, and this morning a torrential downpour that goes on and on! We had some mopping up to do, and are running the Endless Breeze fan (a terrific 12 volt fan, by the way) to kind of dry things out! Fortunately we had buttoned up the camperback canvas last night, and the cockpit is nice and dry. I called the office and was able to extend for one more day, as the forecast is a little better for tomorrow. One day at a time I guess! Current installment of our blog, which does not cover the thunderstorm, is here!

  • Collision with Dredge Equipment, Cooper River, Charleston, SC, near AICW Statute Mile 465


    This incident confirms the wisdom of advice always given by the USCG to stand clear of dredge equipment. Dredging in the southern Waterway has become so common that boaters often ignore published warnings of less easily seen dredge equipment in support of the clearly visible dredge vessel.

  • Wounded Nature -Working Veterans’ April Newsletter

    Wounded Nature-Working Veterans organizes cleanups to address the many wildlife critical coastal areas that have never been cleaned. If you would like to volunteer and if you have a suitable boat (see below), the next scheduled cleanup is April 22.

    Public beach and roadside cleanups benefit the travel & tourism Industry. Our coastal cleanups benefit wildlife. READ MORE!


    Improving South Carolina’s Seafood Population and Production!

    On March 25th, 2017, Boeing, Bosch, Charleston Southern University Women’s Volleyball Team, SC Department of Natural Resources, Fish and Wildlife Service and the general public worked with Wounded Nature – Working Veterans to make a real coastal difference.

    Trash and debris that poison, entangle and injures marine wildlife was removed from Charleston Harbor. In place of the trash and debris, an oyster bed that we started laying last year, was extended and has begun filtering the water around this island.

    Getting wet, dirty, smelling like pluff mud, feeding the mosquitoes, gnats and flies, acquiring some scratches, scrapes and cuts is just a small part of what these volunteers endured to make a real coastal difference.

    Cleanup news
    Coastal Cleanup April 22nd, 2017
    Capers Island

    Low tide is 11:23. Wounded Nature boats should leave the ramp around 8:30 and spend several hours removing trash and debris from the high tide line area.

    Meeting location:
    We will be launching from the Buck’s Hall Boat Ramp. We will be performing this coastal cleanup in conjunction with the Power Boat Squadron.

    Currently, we cannot take on any additional volunteers for this project unless they have a boat and are willing to return with some trash and debris in their boat.

    Overnight primitive camping on the beach will be available with a permit from SC DNR. Permits available at: http://www.dnr.sc.gov/mlands/specregshp.html

    At Wounded Nature-Working Veterans we organize cleanups to address the many wildlife critical coastal areas that have never been cleaned. Most areas can only be accessed by boat. For us, there is no need to further study the problem, we are focused on remedial action and getting tons of trash and debris removed from our coastal areas. We do make a real difference! Our work results in increased fish and shellfish populations and reduced debris deaths for dolphins, manatees, sea turtles and endangered coastal wildlife.
    Small personal donations allow us to carry out our greatly needed mission!

  • Harbour Town Yacht Basin Partially Open, AICW Statute Mile 565

    Harbour Town at Hilton Head, with its familiar red-and-white-striped lighthouse, is a fine resort marina with an enormous number of amenities.

    Harbour Town Yacht Basin at Sea Pines Resort has been closed due to damage from Hurricane Matthew. They now can offer fuel sales and a few transient slips with water, but no electricity. Harbour Town Yacht Basin hopes to return to full service in June. Our thanks to George Williams for this report which has been confirmed by phone call.

    This marina is up and running bought gas with boat/us discount for 3.30.9/gal yesterday.

  • St. Johns Yacht Harbor Recommended, Charleston, SC , AICW Statute Mile 472.5


     For those who own a boat and love the water, buying a SJYH wet slip is an easy decision when you consider the benefits. The opportunity to own waterfront access a mere 11 minutes from historic downto

    Located on the western shore of the Stono River just south of the Waterway’s passage out of Wappoo Creek – Elliot Cut and only a very short cruise from Charleston Harbor, St. Johns Yacht Harbor is A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR! By boat or by car, it is worth a trip just to see these beautiful facilities with probably the nicest Captains’ Lounge and Clubhouse on the east coast! Our thanks to S. Jones from AGLCA’s Forum for these comments.

    I highly recommend St Johns Yacht Harbor. I also recommend Ross Marine which is a few miles up the Stono. You can use the courtesy car at St Johns to check out Ross.
