Back Creek, off Adams Creek just south of Cedar Creek, is not an anchorage listed in our North Carolina Anchorage Directory, principally because for the last 30+ years, I’ve hit 3 feet of water every time we try and enter. There seems to be a bar of UNCHARTED shoals between the AICW channel and the creek’s westerly mouth. All this IN SPITE OF the inviting depths shown on chart 11541!
However, with Captain Davis’ 2.5 foot shoal draft (see below), he just might be able to safely cross the above described bar, and enter Back Creek. No guarantees though!
Hope he shares his experience on these waters with the rest of us!
Will be on Adams Creek evening of 9/30/12 and plan on anchoring in Cedar Creek. Just south of Cedar Creek is Back Creek with charted min depth of 5 feet. I only draw 2.5 feet. Anyone have any experience with Back Creek?
These are my home waters. So long there is not a strong wind from the west or sw, you will not have any problem. Enjoy the serenity.
