Bob and Ann Sherer Report on the Dawho River, AICW Statute Mile 497
For several years Cruisers’ Net has had reports of shallow water encountered near the eastern end of the Waterway’s passage through South Carolina’s Dawho River between the North and South Edisto Rivers. Our thanks to authors Bob and Ann Sherer for sharing their observations on the erroneous magenta line in this section. The Sherers have just released the 2017 edition of their ICW Cruising Guide, see /166170.
I wrote an article about a 5.5 MLW route through the shallows of the east entrance into the Dawho River, a notoriously shallow area of the ICW south of Charleston. It’s also where the magenta line can lead you astray as far as finding the deepest water. The article might be of interest to your readers so I’ve included a link if you think that’s the best way of presenting the information.
Here’s the link to the article:
Thanks, Bob Sherer
