Another Report of Shoaling at AICW/Lockwoods Folly Intersection, Statute Mile 321
Our thanks to the Skippers Powers for this report. The intersection of the ICW and Lockwoods Folly has been a Problem Stretch for years and requires almost annual dredging. Recent reports like this one confirm shoaling here, /?p=150841. SSECN stills recommends Mid to high tide for passage through Lockwoods Folly.
Just passed Lockwood’s Folly close to high tide. Lots of radio traffic from boats ahead of us. Buoy 47 is OUT OF POSITION. All boats except one motor yacht ignored 47 and used reds 46,46a, and 46b- keeping 30-40 ft away. We saw 7.1 between 46a & 46b, others reported 8-10 ft
