Report on AICW Problem Stretch Depths South of McClellanvile, SC, (Statute Mile 431)

Due to persistent shoaling, in early 2011 we designated the Waterway south of McClellanville to Awendaw Creek, as an “ACW Problem Stretch.” Capt. Long gives us even more specifics. As before, we recommend passage at mid or high tide.

Here is my track through the shoaling a mile south of McClellanville, mile 431. I went through at low water and could visually see the shallow spots that account for the “S” curve. I dug what felt like about a 3″ inch trench at the spot indicated at N33 04.239 W79 28.412. I don’t think there is a straight path through here at low water for a boat drawing more than four feet.
