Submerged Hazard north of Isle of Palms, AICW Statute Mile 455, 9/30/2017

Southport Marina

This hazard is just north of the Waterway’s crossing of Dewees Creek and Dewees Inlet.

Our thanks for his kind words and for forwarding this report goes to Hank Pomeranz of Carolina Yacht Care and Southport Marina, A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, located just west of the Cape Fear River along the northern banks of the Waterway hard by flashing daybeacon #2A. And, of course, our thanks to Robert Blakely for being a “cruiser helping other cruisers!” Thank you Rob!

Hi folks,
Here’s a report from Skipper Rob Blakely of M/V Asolare that I think is worth sharing as we start to gear up for the Transient season.

Rob, both Salty Southeast Cruisers’ Net (SSECN) ( and Waterway Guide ( are outstanding organizations supporting cruisers. Suggest you check them out if you haven’t already.

Just before Isle of Palms between makers 106 and 108 is this beast sticking out of water. It is in the channel about 20 ft I would estimate. This is a low tide so at high tide it would not be visible. Had friend in small boat check it out closer and he said it is stationary. Is there a way to report?

    Get your local TowBoat to hook to it and drag it out of the channel.
