AICW Shallows Near McClellanville (near Staute Mile 432)
I think this is the first report we've had here on the Cruisers' Net concerning AICW shoaling near McClellanville. While the depths Captain Richard reports below aren't grounding levels for many cruising craft, 6 feet at MLW in the Waterway is a cause for concern!
Subject: McLellanville Shallows
Cruising News: Claiborne,
Just passed through the McLellanville area. The tide was at 0.8 FT above low. From G35 to R42 the depth varied from 7-9 FT. Taking into consideration the tide level I would say that the controlling depth at low tide would be 6 FT.
