USACE Survey of Problem Stretch Lockwoods Folly/AICW Intersection, Statute Mile 321


The intersection of the ICW and Lockwoods Folly has been a Problem Stretch for years and requires almost annual dredging. Much thanks to Hank Pomeranz for this report.

The USACE surveyed Lockwood Folly Inlet on 10-11-16 – Post Matthew. Attached is the latest survey, including the lat/lon for waypoints. Read More

We took the workboat down there today and found the buoy positions to be accurate. We also ran the waypoint lines as shown on the chart and measured a minimum depth along the lines at 6.7’ MLW. Boats drawing around 6’ or greater might want to wait until a mid tide and rising tide to make this transit. Notice the wide turn between R46A and R46B, keeping you off G47. The track seems close to the seawall but there’s good water along the USACE recommended route.
I feel confident that this survey and the USACE waypoints are good representations of the current state of this intersection.
Best regards
Hank
