Rough Night Anchored in Factory Creek, off the AICW Statute Mile 536.5

 Factory Creek Anchorage, hard by the charming community of Beaufort, South Carolina, lies northeast of Lady’s Island Marina, in the body of the Factory Creek’s sharp bend to the north. The mouth of Factory Creek opens onto the southern flank of the Waterway immediately east of Ladys Island Bridge.

Tried this anchorage in 35 kt of winds with a 30 kg mason supreme anchorage on a 40 ft cat and pull through mud till close to docks. Eventually stayed at a dock.
