Reminder of Shoaling in Problem Stretch south of McClellanville, AICW Statute Miles 430-433


The waterway south of McClellanville has been shoaling for years and as the LNM reports below, funds are not available for dredging. SSECN recommends mid to high tide for passage through this section.

SOUTH CAROLINA – AICW – CASINO CREEK TO BEAUFORT RIVER – WINYAH BAY-CHARLESTON HARBOR: Shoaling Extended.

Shoaling has been reported in the vicinity of Winyah Bay-Charleston Harbor Light 35 (LLNR 34235) and Daybeacon 42 (LLNR 34260). The reporting source also indicates that the depth of the water between Winyah Bay-Charleston Light 38 (LLNR 34245) and Daybeacon 42 (LLNR 34260) is approximately 4ft; however the depth is charted at 7ft. The ACOE has no future plans for dredging due to budget restrictions. Further information can be found on the ACOE Charleston website http://www.sac.usace.army.mil/ Mariners are advised to use extreme caution while transiting the area. Chart 11518 LNM 37/16

    Just came through the McClellanville problem in a 5 ft. draft sail and ran aground 4 times at 2 hrs before low tide. The worst part is a 2 mile stretch between Jeremy Creek and ICW marks 39 and 40 headed south. Mid to rising tide is a must when transiting this area.
