UPDATE: Survey and Report from AICW/Shallotte Inlet Intersection, AICW Statute Mile 330


Latest reports, Problem Stretch Report and http://cruisersnet.net/160432 confirm that the shallowest spot was at G81 in the Shallotte intersection and that the other nav aids appear to be on-station. That shallow water at G81 is confirmed by a report and survey sent by Hank Pomeranz of Carolina Yacht Care in Southport. The current advice for this intersection remains: mid to high tide and HUG THE RED!

LOCAL KNOWLEDGE – This is an extremely tight squeeze through here at MLW for all but the shallowest draft boats. Check the most recent USACE survey at: http://saw-nav.usace.army.mil/AIWW/CFRLR/T_19-20/Tangent_19-20.pdf.

We took our work boat down there after Matthew. Between R80A and R82, we followed the USACE track and found 5′ MLW with rapid shoaling on the green side. We tried the same run again closer to the red side and found 6.4′ MLW. The challenge is that it’s narrow through there.
Suggest transiting this inlet on a mid and rising tide and favoring a line between R80A and R82 – perhaps 10′ off. Slow and easy.

    Shallotte Inlet again saw 8-10’ mid channel but then strayed too close to G81 and ran aground – fortunately on a rising tide.
