Update on Pascal’s Report on AICW Problem Stretch Channel Through Cumberland Dividings (Statute Mile 704)
Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 06-12-2012
This troublesome stretch lies at the intersections of the Brickhill River, Crooked River and the Waterway. Shoaling and mischarting of the magenta fairway line reder this section of the AICW a REAL problem. Be sure to follow the link below to these water’s listing in our “AICW Problem Stretches Directory” to learn more!
While some tide is nice, I no longer bother passing thru here at high tide as there is plenty of water on the green side. northbound, favor the greens south of the bend then keep going almost as if you’re going into that creek on the NE side. Stay close to the shore line in the turn then come back towards the center after G59A north of the turn. Well over 15′ MLW all the way. No reason to run aground here!

Came through here today (June 12, 2012) at 11:30 AM which was 1.5 hrs past low tide.
Follow Pascal”s instructions and you will find plenty off water. Lowest reading we observed was 11.4 ft. using his directions.
