    We spent a quiet night here on 12/03/09. Watch the shoaling at the entrance, especially the north side. We went up stream to find shelter from the wind. Recommend going upstream for protection and to avoid the swift current near the rivers mouth.. Holding appeared great and our danforth held giving us a peaceful night.

    Spent a very quiet night here yesterday. We anchored in 17 feet at MLW with only a slight current and almost no wind. The anchor grabbed at once and set great. Very peaceful as has been the previous 3 times we’ve stayed here. This is a great protected spot for anything coming from the North or East.

    We anchored in the Wahoo River in June 2009. Great spot to anchor just south of Wahoo Island in about 18 feet of water with some wind protection from the north; no wind protection from any other direction. We did not anchor to the east of Wahoo Island; no particular reason other than getting the island to the north of us for wind protection from that quadrant rather than hanging out further east/southeast with no wind protection from any direction.

    We also found Wahoo river to be a very good anchorage. WHile we were there a major squall came roaring through. We saw 30 knts of wind and the winds were clocking. But through the entire night the holding was EXCELLENT

    Subject: Georgia and south to Florida
    Cruising News: Hello Claiborne;
    We just returnied to Fort Lauderdale having stayed in Thunderbolt until our November 1 insurance date. We never saw less than 8 feet anywhere on theway through Georgia.We rae a slow boat and your uides make great reading while watching the boat go along.Here\’s a small update:Following your advice we anchored up Wahoo Creek and found it to be as advertised being as you promised beautiful, idyllic and possessing tangible isolation. This may not last long, however, for WAhoo Island has been wired for electrical service and the boxes can be seen in clearings just a couple hundred yards from where you show an anchor on page 420 of the sixth edition. It’s time to visit this lovely anchorage before the McMansions go up.
    Best regards,
    Fred SorensenOA 43
