Report from Problem Stretch south of McClellanville, AICW Statute Miles 430-433


The waterway south of McClellanville has been shoaling for years and as this LNM reports: http://cruisersnet.net/159671. Even with Captain Hospodar’s favorable experience, SSECN still recommends mid to high tide for passage through this section.

My wife Pat and I traveled from Mile 430 to 435 on 10/24/16 one hour after low water, staying in the middle we found no less than 6 feet of water throughout the area.

    I agree with George, we came through here yesterday at dead low tide and found no less than 5 foot of water under the boat. We draw 3 1/2 feet. The larger problem are the crab traps. They are everywhere, shore to shore and the channel is no exception. Took us a lot of “S” turns, but we managed to miss them all. You have to really pay attention to the depth finder and out the window in this stretch.
