Report from North Edisto River Inlet, well off the AICW, south of Charleston, SC

North Edisto River Entrance - Click for Chartview

The AICW intersects the North Edisto River at Statute Mile 497. You must abandon the Waterway and cruise downstream some 8.5 nautical miles to reach this river’s inlet.

Cruising News:
I recently transited the North Edisto R inlet from West to East.
Both R-6 and R-4 as shown on Chart #11522 are missing. R-2NE is in the position as shown.
I favored G-9 off Deveaux Bank going thru the deepest water of the middle bank thru the old position of R-6 and on to R-2NE at mid high tide with nothing less than 13′. Ebb tide with NW 10k winds.
65′ MV draft 5-5′

UPDATE – October 10, 2012, we just received the report below from Capt. Rob Bessinger and have consequently rescinded our Navigation Alert for these waters.

According to USCG Local Notice to Mariners, Distrcit 7, Week 40/12 [the first week of October], Chart 11522, the North Edisto River Entrance Lighted Buoy 6 (R6) is fixed and has status of “Watching Properly”
