    • Jekyll Creek Tug Re-Floated, Report and Video, GA AICW Statute Mile 683


      The capsizing of this large tug caused a stir among boaters who regularly use this shallow water Problem Stretch of the Waterway. A cause for the sinking is still under investigation by the Coast Guard. See Capsized Tug for earlier reports.

       

      The tug that capsized Dec. 19 in Jekyll Creek off Jekyll Island has been refloated and should be on it’s way from Jekyll to Florida this weekend. Attached is a PDF and photo. Here is a link ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHd3pdDABnQ ) to some drone footage for TV folks. Thanks, and have a good weekend.

      FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
      Capsized tug refloated off Jekyll Island
      Jan. 25, 2019
      ‘Miss Addison’ sank Dec. 19 in Jekyll Creek
      BRUNSWICK, Ga. — A tug boat that capsized Dec. 19 in Jekyll Creek off Jekyll Island, Ga., has been refloated and is expected to be towed to a shipyard in Fernandina Beach, Fla., no later than Sunday, Jan. 27.
      The vessel’s owner, Salonen Marine of Yulee, Fla., began work Monday and used two 165-ton marine cranes to right the Miss Addison after it was surveyed by salvage divers. The vessel was being dewatered Friday and divers will inspect the hull and make any necessary repairs before towing it away from Jekyll Island. 

      Miss Addison Refloat

      “We’re very pleased to see this vessel being removed from Jekyll Creek, and we do not anticipate it will leave any permanent damage to the water bottom” said Buck Bennett, a compliance and enforcement manager for the Coastal Resources Division (CRD) of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. “Salonen Marine and its insurance company was fully complaint with CRD and we are not taking any further actions at this time.”
      The Miss Addison did not appear to be leaking fuel when observed by CRD staff Friday using an unmanned aerial vehicle. After the capsizing, Safe Harbor Pollution Insurance installed containment booms around the vessel and safely pumped off 2,265 gallons of diesel fuel. A skimmer boat was used during the salvage operation to ensure no further pollution escaped into Jekyll Creek.
      The cause of the sinking is being investigated by the U.S. Coast Guard. No one was injured in the incident, which happened around 6 p.m. an hour before high tide.

    • Great News: Jekyll Creek Beneficial Use Project Awarded, GA AICW Statute Mile 685


      Jeykyll Harbor Marina... a Cool Place to Beat the Heat

      This improvement project for this major ICW Problem Stretch is an example of how Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway Association is working to secure the necessary funding to benefit all intracoastal boaters. See FOCUS ON AIWA and join today! Jekyll Creek is home to Jekyll Harbor Marina, A CRUISERS NET SPONSOR, lying along the easterly banks of the Waterway’s passage through Jekyll Creek, immediately south of the 65-foot fixed bridge.

      Dear Georgia stakeholders and friends of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway Association (AIWA),

      As everyone knows, the AIWA has been focused on the maintenance dredging of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway at Jekyll Creek, Georgia and the placement of material in a beneficial use project for over two years. Today, we received great news as those efforts and the heavy lifting of many others has led to an upcoming project- The Jekyll Creek Beneficial Use project has been officially awarded to Cottrell Contracting Corporation. This project will involve the dredging of material from Jekyll Creek and placing the material in a thin-layer on the northern end of Jekyll creek for marsh restoration and enhancement, and also in a nearby deep hole.

      Although a schedule is not yet available as the contract was just signed, everyone wants to move quickly so I am hopeful that they will be starting in 30-45 days. I am happy to answer any questions you might have and want to thank you for your ongoing support, and for some of you, your direct support of this effort.

      All the best and congratulations to all of us.

      Respectfully,

      Brad

    • 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.

    • Healy Report: Walburg Creek to Cumberland Island, AICW Statute Miles 623 to 711


      Experienced cruisers, Jim and Peg Healy, continue to generously share their observations and advice as they make their way south for the winter. Thank you Jim and Peg! For timely remarks on Cumberland Island Anchorage, see Anchoring off Cumberland Island.

      On Tuesday, 0/20/2018, Sanctuary and crew transited from Walburg Creek anchorage to an anchorage on the Cumberland River, south of St. Andrews Sound, off the ICW at Cumberland Island. Observations follow:

      We arrived at the Little Mud River at 11h00. The tide station at Wolf Island was reporting 5.1’+ rising. North to south:

      R184 12.9′
      13.4′ low water between markers
      G184/R188 19.6′
      10.2′ low water between markers
      G189 20.7′
      R190 15.1′
      11.0′ low water between markers
      R192 13.9′
      11.0′ low water between markers
      G195 11.8′
      10.9′ low water between markers
      R194 11.1′
      G195 12.2′

      The control depth was (10.2 – 5.1) = 5.1 and MLLW. Follow the visual center of the river on the straight section and SLIGHTLY favor the outside radius of the curves. We were too close to G195, but that wasn’t the low water anyway.

      In Altamaha Sound, you must clear R208 by at least 300′; stay to the far green side for the best water.

      In Altamaha Sound, clear G211 by 200′. There is a range there that will take you too close to G211, so do not follow the range; favor red for the best water.

      We arrived at Jekyll Creek and 17h08. The tide station at Jekyll Island Marina was showing 4.9’+ falling. North to south:

      G5/R6 11.5′
      G7/R8 22.4′
      R10 15.2′
      G11 12.5′
      9.9′ low water between markers
      G13 10.0′
      9.6′ low water between markers
      R16 9.7′
      G17 5.7′
      G19 8.6′
      6.1′ low water between markers
      R20 8.0′
      7.8′ low water between markers
      R20A 8.9′
      BRIDGE 10.2′

      We were at 1/2 tide for this transit. The control depth was in the vicinity of G17 (5.7 – 4.9) = 0.8′. Wow. Could we have been is a less than ideal place? Sure. But this creek is quite narrow, so it wouldn’t have made a lot of difference. There’s very skinny in that area.

      Jekyll Creek and Hell Gate are the two places we’ve seen so far that will require help from the tide for most boats to get through.

    • Anchoring off Cumberland Island, GA AICW Statute Mile 711.5


      One of Claiborne’s favorite side trips along the southern Georgia portion of the AICW was to leave the Waterway at marker #34 and cruise up the Cumberland Island channel to anchor off the west side of Cumberland Island and east of Drum Point Island. I am not sure if this anchorage is where Perry McDonald dropped hook, but I am very sure that Perry was experiencing the true essence and joy of cruising and that you will enjoy his observations!

      We recently anchored (s/v Rasselas) with my friend Fred (s/v Rhombus) for a couple of days at Cumberland Island, GA. Cumberland is unique from most islands in that it offers abundant wildlife (horses, deer, hogs, eagles, hawks, etc.) and 18th/19th century ruins (Dungeness) not to mention a beautiful long beach one can leisurely stroll or reserve one of the Park’s bikes for several hours or miles along clearly marked bike paths.

      I arose early the second morning taking note of the sounds and sights while lazily sitting in the cockpit of the boat. I first noticed the calm still water surrounding our boats as the sun made it way above the horizon to welcome this sailor a new day. At first the water seemed motionless but upon further examination you could see the ever slow current carrying a number of barely visible particles glimmering in the water as the sun rose. I noticed a school of bait fish making their way along to the shore and then a splash as they came under attack. This only lasted a few minutes and then the water return to the stillness I had been enjoying. Soon I heard the sound of an osprey in search of food maybe for itself or possibly some hungry nesting young. It was soon joined by several other ospreys. Then one of the birds swooped down with great speed and grace and plucked a fish from the water and flew off to the tree line. By this time my morning cup of coffee was gone and the temperature was rising so I decided to dangle my feet in the cool water from the swim platform. To my amazement I was soon visited by a group of dolphins frolicking nearby but became curious about who might be anchored in the their waters. To my astonishment they came within feet of my feet as if to say good morning and welcome to our home. They would return several more times during my stay. On the shore some of the island’s famous wild horses moseyed along the shoreline feeding on the tender green grass revealed by the low tide. When you think you have heard and seen all there is–there is more. The sky above Rasselas filled with high pitch squeals of two magnificent bald eagles circling above as if performing a ballet of sorts. They flew in perfect unison scouring the waters below much like the earlier ospreys in search of meal. They soon vanished as they had appeared. Not long after the eagles disappearance the calmness and quietness of my surrounding were soon to be interrupted by the blasting horn from the arrival of the first Cumberland Island ferries depositing a small number of early arrivals to the island. Soon to be joined by the first if several sightseeing tour boats loaded with anxious tourists wanting to take that perfect picture or maybe just one of several selfies. Next to Rasselas lies Drum Point Island and it was beginning to become awash in the wakes of the passing boats as the morning passed.

      Before I realized it was time to find a shady spot to hide from the noonday blazing sun ending my account of the sounds and sights (14-15 Oct 30, 2018 of my incredible morning anchored at Cumberland Island.

      Perry is a retired LTC and sails s/v Rasselas (Hunter 36) with his wife. When not cruising and exploring the southeast coast and nearby islands they.live in St. Augustine, FL.

    • Praise for Jekyll Harbor Marina, AICW Statute Mile 684.5


      Jeykyll Harbor Marina... a Cool Place to Beat the Heat

      A CRUISERS NET SPONSOR, Jekyll Harbor Marina lies along the easterly banks of the AICW’s passage through Jekyll Creek, immediately south of the 65-foot fixed bridge. Our thanks to Perry McDonald for these good words for Jekyll Harbor Marina.

      We had the pleasure of staying here Oct 16-18 while waiting on some weather to pass. This is ONE FINE MARINA. From the dock staff to the dock master PROFESSIONAL and HELPFUL. Dockage, diesel fuel and 20lb bags of ice were reasonably priced. The restaurant serves EXCELLENT food (shrimp and grits first night and fried shrimp and flounder the second night). They have a swimming pool and Jacuzzi. Clean showers. Bikes for touring the island. Or if you prefer you can get a golf cart for 90 minutes. Flash foods and Dairy Queen are within walking distance if you are looking to get a BLIZZARD. Plus they have safe and protected walking trails all the way to the resort. I am so glad for my friend Fred recommending we stop here. Call ahead and reserve your place they fill up fast. Great marina, restaurant, and friendly staff are what we all want after a day on the water.

    • Problem Stretch Report: Jekyll Creek, AICW Statute Mile 683


      Jeykyll Harbor Marina... a Cool Place to Beat the Heat

      The channel through Jekyll Creek seems to shift with each tide and, as recommended in this report, Cruisers’ Net likewise recommends mid to high tide passage. Jekyll Creek is home to A CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, Jekyll Harbor Marina. Jerry and Sam’s report on this Problem Stretch is reprinted with their kind permission from AGLCA’s Forum. Thank you, Jerry and Sam!

      We went through Jekyll Creek yesterday about an hour before low tide with two days of west winds blowing what water was left out to the Atlantic. I wouldn’t suggest anyone try this section in the conditions we had, I’m just hard headed and have a 2’10” draft.
      We lost readings on both depth finders, and the Admiral stood in the cockpit and told me which prop was stirring up mud in an attempt to keep us in the deepest water as I idled the entire length from the bridge North to St. Simon sound. We never bumped bottom, but it was not a comfortable section to navigate. There was not enough room in the wet part of the creek for a Jon boat to comfortably pass either side of us.
      This is one of those sections on the AICW we will consider a mid to high tide only area on future trips.

    • Healy Report: Cumberland Dividings Problem Stretch, Statute Mile 704


      Cumberland Dividings has been a Problem Stretch for several years due to constantly shifting shoals and an erroneous magenta line on many chartplotters. Experienced cruisers, Jim and Peg Healy, share their observations and advice on navigating this Problem Stretch.

      Sanctuary and crew departed Brunswick, GA, southbound, at 08h40 on 11/1/2017. The weather was clear, winds light and variable, seas flat, low humidity. A great welcome to Florida in November!

      Cumberland Dividings – SOUTHBOUND at approximately MM 703, the ICW makes a 90º turn to STBD, at R”60.” Shoaling in that area is growing eastbound. We transited at 11h30. The tide station at Crooked River, Cumberland Dividings, Georgia, reported +2.8 ft. We saw 8 ft through that area, but advise to favor Green, the OUTSIDE RADIUS OF THAT BEND IN THE RIVER for much better water depths. Screen Shot “Dividings” shows that area, attached.

    • Healy Report: Georgia’s St. Andrew Sound, AICW Statue Mile 690


      The unpleasant passages through St. Andrew Sound experienced by many cruisers have prompted any number of alternate routes to avoid the infamous R32 at the mouth of St. Andrew Sound. See /144151. Cruisers Jim and Peg Healy suggest a route east of Horseshoe Shoal that they have used many times as weather permits.

      Sanctuary and crew departed Brunswick, GA, southbound, at 08h40 on 11/1/2017. The weather was clear, winds light and variable, seas flat, low humidity. A great welcome to Florida in November!

      St. Andrews Sound – for many years, we have followed a route along the East end of Horseshoe Shoal. The shoal does not seem to have been affected by Hurricane Irma, but is growing toward the east. We transited at 10h00 with the tide at +4.1. Along the route we take, we saw nothing less than 8 ft. That implies 4.0 ft at MLLW, but today winds were light and variable and seas were flat. On a day with lots of energy coming in off the ocean, and/or more vigorous winds, the practical depth in wave troughs would have been much less. Anyone else using this “shortcut,” heads up. Screen shot “StAndrews” shows that area, attached.

      Jekyll Creek – We transited Jekyll Creek southbound between 09h10 and 09h30. Tide at Jekyll Creek Tide Station was +5.1 dropping to +4.7. We saw 7.8 feet along the route, so 7.8-4.7=3.1 feet at MLLW. The most serious shallow spot is in the vicinity of G”19.” We were on a route that was too close to G”19,” and we saw 6.0 ft in the channel on our route. Although we were in the channel, we were not in the best water. I would ass/u/me all cruising boats will need some help from the tide to clear Jekyll Creek. Screen shot G”19″ shows that area, attached. Favor red at G”19.”

    • Report from Lang’s Marina, St. Marys, GA

      Lang’s Marina is on the north shore of the St. Marys River in downtown St. Marys. Our thanks to the skipper of the Linda Jean for this report.

      Lang’s east docks completely gone. Any boats that remained on the docks were crushed during the hurricane. Lang’s west docks mostly destroyed with the exception of one floater remaining, Only two permanent sailboats survived by anchoring five miles up river.

    • Report from The Blue Goose, St. Marys, GA, St. Marys River

      The Blue Goose is a hostel and cafe in downtown St. Marys.

      Looks like we are down. All the docks downtown gone, boats were ashore and Lang’s lost some roof.

      Jeykyll Harbor Marina... a Cool Place to Beat the Heat

      The channel through Jekyll Creek seems to shift with each tide and Cruisers’ Net recommends mid to high tide passage. Fortunately, Bob and Ann Sherer, authors of 2017 ICW Cruising Guide, graciously share their 2017 survey of this Problem Stretch, complete with charts of the most treacherous segments, to assist your low tide passage through this fickle channel. Jekyll Creek is home to SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, Jekyll Harbor Marina.
