  • LNM: Operating Schedule Variants, I-64 Bridge, AICW Statute Mile 7.1


    These closed-to-navigation periods will not affect 65ft or less air draft vessels, EXCEPT the notice appears to ask for 15 minute notice if passing under the 65ft closed vertical clearance.

    The I-64 High Rise Bridge over Elizabeth River Southern Branch, mile 7.1, in Chesapeake, VA will deviate from its current operating schedule as set out in 33 CFR 117.997(e). This deviation is effective from 7 a.m. on Oct 2, through 11 p.m. on Nov 22, 2017. Under this temporary deviation, the bridge will be maintained in the closed-to-navigation position on four separate five-day periods:
    1) From 7 a.m. on October 2, 2017, through 11 p.m. on October 6, 2017;
    2) From 7 a.m. on October 16, 2017, through 11 p.m. on October 20, 2017;
    3) From 7 a.m. on October 30, 2017, through 11 p.m. on November 3, 2017;
    4) From 7 a.m. on November 13, 2017, through 11.p.m. on November 17, 2017.
    The alternate dates are:
    1) From 7 a.m. on October 9, 2017 through 11 p.m. on October 13, 2017;
    2) From 7 a.m. on October 23, 2017 through 11 p.m. on October 27, 2017;

    4) From 7 a.m. on November 18, 2017 through 11 p.m. on November 22, 2017.
    The bridge has a vertical clearance in the closed-to-navigation position of 65 feet above mean high water. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so if at least 15 minutes notice is given. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies and there is no immediate alternate route for vessels unable to pass through the bridge in the closed position. Mariners should use caution when transiting the area. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter, contact USCG Sector Hampton Roads, Waterways Management Division at (757) 668-5580 or HamptonRoadsWaterway@uscg.mil.

  • Dismal Swamp Canal to Re-Open by End of September, AICW Alternate Route


    Our thanks to Donna Stewart for this good news concerning the Dismal Swamp Canal Welcome Center and State Park, A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR. The Canal has been closed to navigation following damage from Hurricane Matthew and the re-opening will be just in time for the annual Fall Migration of Cruisers.

    Dismal Swamp Canal to reopen in September

    By Kerry Solan
    Norfolk District Public Affairs READ MORE!

    NORFOLK, Va. – The Dismal Swamp Canal is scheduled to reopen to vessel traffic by the end of September, with the Lake Drummond Reservation and Feeder Ditch opening to canoes and kayaks on August 18, officials said.

    Crews continue to dredge the canal, which officials at the Norfolk District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers closed due to extensive damage from Hurricane Matthew in October.

    “In the history of the canal, we’ve never had this issue, and we’re using every available resource to make the canal safe again for vessels,” said Joel Scussel, Norfolk District Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway project manager.

    Engineers completed a survey of the Dismal Swamp Canal in March after crews had finished clearing more than 350 trees from the canal.

    That survey, along with another survey in July, revealed controlling depths less than the normal 6 feet: engineers plotted the Deep Creek Channel at 4.8 feet, Tuners Cut was less than 2.5 feet and the Feeder Ditch was shoaled in at a depth of approximately 1 foot.

    The crew of Wilmington District’s Dredge Murden completed dredging in the Deep Creek Channel on June 21. After-dredge surveys showed a controlling depth of 6 feet, which allowed officials to reopen the channel to navigation. The Dredge Murden will return at the end of August to complete clean-up adjacent to the Deep Creek Lock.

    Feeder Ditch dredging resumes today. The crane crew will dredge 1,500 cubic yards of material to reopen the Feeder Ditch to a depth of 6 feet, 25 feet wide by then end of August.

    When crews complete work at the Feeder Ditch, they will return to Turners Cut to complete work that was suspended after the quality of dredged material at Turners Cut did not meet the standards for beneficial reuse. Officials coordinated with the state of North Carolina while a new dredging method was arranged that met state water quality standards.

    Engineers are also working on a design for emergency generators for the Deep Creek and South Mills Locks, which were inoperable after the hurricane.

    Deep Creek Lock Gate rehabilitation work, which was scheduled before Hurricane Matthew struck, is complete: the gates were reinstalled on July 19 and operating the next day.

    When the post-hurricane dredging operations began in the canal, officials aimed to reopen the waterway before October, when perennial “snowbirds” use the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway to travel south, bound for the Bahamas and Florida ports of call.

    “Since the hurricane, our goal has been to reopen the canal to navigation as soon as possible,” Scussel said.

    Dismal Swamp State Park is getting back into full swing as they recover from massive flooding and closure due to Hurricane Matthew. Dredging has begun and the canal is scheduled to re-open to navigation by summer’s end. The State Park is open and continuing programs as weather permits. Our thanks to Donna Stewart for this USACE update.

    One step closer to seeing boaters again! My most recent update from the USACE. READ MORE FOR NEW PHOTOS!

    7/19/2017
    I was able to obtain a few pictures today of the installation of the Deep Creek Lock River Gates. The gates are returning back to the water, where they belong! It was so HOT. But, notice the reflection of the sky in the shot of the newly installed gate on the left. I was told dredging still must be completed at the Feeder Ditch and Turner’s Cut, but this is one more step to getting us reopened. Many thanks to US Facilities and the Norfolk District USACE for helping me to get these shots today.

  • LNM: Shoaling Reported and Temporary Buoys Added to Salt Ponds Entrance Channel, north of Norfolk Harbor, VA


    Salt Ponds is bit out of SSECN’s range, but it is a popular western shore storm shelter for northbound cruisers when the waters just north of Norfolk Harbor kick up. The entrance channel is perpendicular to the beach shore and can be intimidating even without the threat of shoaling.

    VA – CHESAPEAKE BAY – SALT PONDS – HAMPTON – SHOALING
    Shoaling has been reported in the channel into Salt Ponds, Hampton VA, just inside the stone jetty. Depths to 4 feet at low tide have been reported. This shoaling maybe in addition to the shoaling reported on Salt Ponds Marina Resort web site. http://saltpondsmarinaresort.com/contact–directions.html

    And this good news LNM in Week 26:

    CAPE CHARLES TO NORFOLK HARBOR – SALT PONDS – TEMPORARY BUOYS (PRIVATE)
    On or about June 27, 2017, the City of Hampton, Virginia will establish four temporary buoys to mark best water to address shoaling in the entrance to Salt Ponds. These buoys will be removed later this summer after the City dredges the waterway. READ MORE!

  • Report from Dismal Swamp Canal, 9/22/2016


    Our thanks to Donna Stewart for this report on conditions in the Dismal Swamp Canal.

    A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, the Dismal Swamp Canal Welcome Center is located on the east shore of the Canal at Statute Mile 28.

    I have had several calls and wanted to pass on this information. Read More

    We had a lot of rain here and the Dismal Swamp Canal locks have not operated for the past two days. The water is spilling over the lock gates, per our South Mills Lockmasters. They have opened the spillways at both ends of the canal to remove water as fast as possible. They hoped we would be operational today, but this too, did not occur.

    I will check with the ACOE first think tomorrow to see the status of the locks operating at a revised or normal schedule. Many of our rural local roads are flooded.

    The Dismal Swamp State Park has also been closed, due to high water and the inability to lower and close the bridge for pedestrian traffic.

    Hope you all are safe and dry. Call before you come!

  • FLASH Updates on Waterway Closures Due to High Water, 8:00AM 9/23/2016


    On 9/22, we received a report from Skipper Richard Ross that the AICW south of Great Bridge Lock is closed due to high water at the bridges below Great Bridge. The Dismal Swamp Canal is closed at Deep Creek Lock, also due to high water.

    If you are in Norfolk, STAY THERE!

    Details will be added as reported:

    8:00AM 9/23 Atlantic Yacht Basin’s face dock is full. They do have some slip space but with no power. Atlantic Yacht Basin, A SALTY SOUTH EAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, is just south of the Great Bridge Lock.

    For conditions in the Dismal Swamp Canal, see http://cruisersnet.net/159775

    5:00PM 9/22

    Just spoke with the Lock Tender at Great Bridge Lock who confirms that, even though Great Bridge Lock is still operating, there is virtually no place south for boats to go and boats may not tie up in the lock itself.
    The holdup problem lies with North Landing Swing Bridge (Mile 20.2 closed vertical clearance of 3ft) south of Great Bridge where at least a foot of water must go down before the electrical circuits can begin to dry out. AND, it is still raining! Almost all docks immediately south of Great Bridge have been taken and the small free dock on your port side going south is under water.

    Water at Deep Creek Lock is and the canal was three to four feet above normal and water is still coming over the lock gate. Obviously the lock is inoperable and it will be sometime before the water level drops.

    NO ESTIMATE IS BEING MADE AS TO WHEN OPERATIONS WILL RETURN TO NORMAL AT EITHER LOCK.

    IF YOU ARE STILL IN NORFOLK, STAY THERE!!

    The shared space between awards and rewards comes from serving you. The part we play in local economic development is the result of meeting your needs. We contribute to local employment by hiring dedicated and professional staff. We retain only the most experienced and reliable outside contractors.

    Our professional and knowledgeable Marine Store personnel stock and order only the best paints, varnishes, parts and equipment to keep your vessel as good as new. We take pride in fulfilling your needs, and at the same time, we are cognizant that this mission is also a resource for other local businesses that serve the boating sector.
    All of what we do is interdependent.

    In fact, the 2016 Waterfront Business of the Year award belongs to you, as much as it does to us.
    We are honored that you put your trust in us. And as a result, we have a thriving business in a community with a strong economy. Bringing your boat to AYB results in our success, which contributes to our community’s vitality.
    We wouldn’t be here unless you were here, and our community is a better place because of it.

    Awards and rewards…they share some of the same space.

    We are proud we can share our passion for boats with your passion for travelling America’s waterways—and that includes the Intracoastal Waterway, as it passes through Chesapeake, Virginia and in front of Atlantic Yacht Basin.

    We’re grateful that our customers come back to us boat after boat, year after year
