    MSIB 18-063 UPDATE 2 I-64 High Rise Bridge Maintenance Extended.pdfI-64 High Rise Bridge Maintenance, Mile 7.1, Elizabeth River Southern Branch, Chesapeake, VA

    Mariners are advised that an engineering firm, on behalf of Virginia Department of Transportation, will b e performing maintenance at I-64 High Rise Bridge over Elizabeth River Southern Branch, mile 7.1, in Chesapeake, VA. This serves as an update to MSIB 17-105.

  • LNM: UPDATE: Groundings at Lockwood Folly Lighted Buoy 47 Missing, Lockwoods Folly Inlet, NC, AICW Statute Mile 321

    The intersection of the Waterway and Lockwoods Folly has been a Problem Stretch for years and requires almost annual dredging. The missing ICW buoy is stationed on the southside of the channel in the heart of the intersection. And our thanks to Hank Pomeranz for the update and survey below.

    SEC NC BNM 137-18

    And this from Hank Pomeranz of Carolina Yacht Care

    At Lockwoods Folly Inlet / AICW crossing – AICW G47 is missing and R46A does not exist where shown on most nautical charts. Has been reported to the USCG. The shoal in the middle of the channel still exists. It is imperative that skippers follow the red marks around up towards the sea wall for deep water. Boats are going aground – perhaps mistakenly believing that absence of the mark indicates the channel is clear. No word on when the mark will be replaced. Suggest post along with the attached graphic if possible.

  • LNM: Look Out for Manatees When Boating

    Chances of close encounters between Florida manatees and boaters increase in the spring.

    For manatees, it is the season when they leave their winter refuges and travel along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts and through inland waters. For boaters, it is a critical time to be on the lookout for manatees to avoid colliding with these large aquatic mammals. READ MORE!

    “Spring is a great time to go boating in Florida, but manatees are out there too. Please watch out for them,” said Ron Mezich, who heads the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) manatee management program.

    From April 1 through Nov. 15, seasonal manatee zones require boaters to slow down in certain areas to prevent manatees from being struck by motorboats or personal watercrafts. FWC law enforcement officers are on patrol in state waters to remind boaters of the seasonal manatee speed zones and take enforcement actions when appropriate.

    Since manatees are difficult to detect when underwater, operators of boats and personal watercrafts can help by:

    Wearing polarized sunglasses to help spot manatees.
    Looking for large circles on the water, also known as manatee footprints, indicating the presence of a manatee below.
    Looking for a snout sticking up out of the water.
    Following posted manatee zones while boating.
    Reporting an injured, distressed, sick or dead manatee to the FWC’s Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922) or dialing #FWC or *FWC on a cellphone.
    FWC biologists, managers and law enforcement staff work closely with partners to evaluate current data and identify necessary actions to protect this iconic animal. Florida has invested over $2 million annually for manatee conservation, and the FWC works toward continued success for manatees in our state.

    Manatee zones and maps are available at, where you can select “Protection Zones” for links to county maps. Boaters can get tips from “A boater’s guide to living with Florida Manatees.” And if you want to see manatees in the wild or captivity, go to “Where are Florida’s Manatees?”

    To support the FWC’s manatee research, rescue and management efforts, purchase a “Save the Manatee” Florida license plate at, or donate $5 to receive an FWC manatee decal by going to and clicking on “Decals.”

  • LNM: Boaters Urged to Receive Education before Boating Season

    Really good advice and if you live in North Carolina, a boating safety course is required. See Lake Norman Sail and Power Squadron

    Office: (504) 671-2020

    Boaters urged to receive education before boating season

    NEW ORLEANS – The temperature may be cool outside, but the Eighth Coast Guard District is joining boating safety advocates across the country to urge recreational boaters to enroll in a boating education course. READ MORE!

    The Spring Aboard – Take A Boating Education Course campaign encourages boaters to receive education prior to the kick-off of the boating season. Many education providers offer discounts or other incentives for students during the week of March 18-24, 2018, to enroll in a boating education course.

    “We know that an educated boater is safer on the water,” said Tom Guess, the president of the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators and the lead organization for the Spring Aboard campaign. “If a boater has taken a boating safety education course, the likelihood of their time spent on the water being a safe and enjoyable experience is much greater for them as well as their passengers. There’s no reason to head out on the water without knowing what you’re doing, and spring is the perfect time to take a course before the summer boating season begins.”

    “U.S. Coast Guard statistics indicate that of the accidents where the level of operator education was known, 77% of boating deaths occurred on boats where the boat operator had never received boating education instruction,” said Ed Huntsman, the Eight Coast Guard District boating safety program manager.

    With today’s wide variety of courses available, there’s a course for every boater’s schedule. Boaters have multiple options including classroom courses offered by the Coast Guard Auxiliary, United States Power Squadrons and online offerings available anytime.

    Education course providers and offerings will vary between states, so check with your local course provider or state boating agency to find what courses are accepted in your area. Many states require completion of a course verified by NASBLA as meeting the national boating education standard for powerboat rental or operation. To ensure a course qualifies, look for the ‘NASBLA-Approved’ logo.

    The annual Spring Aboard campaign is led by the NASBLA and produced under a grant administered by the U.S. Coast Guard. It is supported by state, federal and nonprofit partners. It is open to participation by all states, territories, boating education organizations, instructors and course providers.
