Report from Mouth of the North River, Albemarle Sound, AICW Statute 65

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 10-14-2011

The Waterway channel narrows considerably at the intersection of the North River and Albemarle Sound. Shoaling from North River Point has been reported on both sides of the channel as it passes through a spoil area.

Here is what I noted today, I didn’t look at the red side but I know from comments that it shoals up. I always favor the green there, passing about 100′ to 150′ from G169. Note that g171 is missing and that a floating R168 has been added.
Favoring the green side gives about 12mlw. On both plotters this results in remaining just outside the dashed channel line on the green side.
