On 9/22/09, as part of a “Georgia Wish List,” I posed the following question:
10. Has anyone abandoned the ICW as it enters the Vernon River (near Statute Mile 597), and cruised upstream to anchor off charted Beaulieu or Montgomery?
This is a great place to anchor! There is a deep channel on the east side of the river, and a broad area to anchor in 8 feet on the west just downstream from charted Beaulieu; after checking the area we preferred anchoring there rather than in the deeper water from Beaulieu to Montgomery. There are several shrimp boats which seem to be permanently anchored in the area, and we anchored upstream from the two shrimpers. It is a great alternative to the marinas from Isle of Hope to Thunderbolt.
