Another Alternate Route for St. Andrew Sound, GA AICW Statute Miles 685-690
St Andrew Sound can kick up nasty conditions in the shallows of the Waterway’s magenta line east around infamous Marker 32. Alternative routes have been explored and suggested as long as I can remember. Robert Sherer’s alternate route below does avoid Marker 32 but is a bit longer. However, Robert’s southbound alternate route, which parallels the north shore of the sound, if continued parallel on a southwest course, would connect nicely to the Satilla River, then into Floyd’s Creek, rejoining the Waterway in the Cumberland River near Mile 690. See Jim Healy’s report on St. Andrew Sound and Avoiding Marker 32. Our thanks to Robert Sherer for this discussion via Bob423.
