    There are folks in our area who were hit pretty hard and the towns are working feverishly to restore essential services but the devastation is not as widespread here as it is in some other places. Help has come from all over the country and we are grateful.

  • Detailed Storm Report from Dowry Creek Marina, Belhaven, NC, AICW Statute Mile 131.5


    Dowry Creek Marina

    Dowry Creek Marina, longtime CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, lies off the AICW/Pungo River north of Belhaven, NC.

    Our brief update on what happened, and our current status is below. The main point I wanted to express is that we have our piers open for business and started accepting boats, and our diesel pumps are operating so we are able to pump again. We will have gas by Monday. Our high speed pump is operating, so we can handle any size diesel-fueled boat, up to 120 feet with a 7 foot draft and up to 175 feet with a 6 foot draft. We are open from sunrise to sunset daily, and can fuel or dock boats in our marked and lit channel 24 hours a day if we get at least a 6 hour advance notice. READ MORE!

    Located 4 miles north of Belhaven; Dowry Creek is Belhaven’s largest marina, and the largest on the Pungo River; with 73 boat slips and over 400 feet of deep water access face dock transient space. The decision was made three days prior to the storm hitting that the docks would be cleared of boats, to ensure both the safety of the boats as well as the integrity of the docks themselves. All boats were removed from the piers and either pullout out on trailers, pulled at the yards and put on stands, or driven up into Dowry Creek and further up into Hyde County along the Pungo, to anchor and ride out the storm.
    During the storm, the marina piers were under 3 feet of water, along with most of the marina property to include the swimming pool, which for about 24 hours was turned into a wave pool with 1 ½ -2 foot waves crashing over the pool and on under the Clubhouse building. About 10-12 trees and large pier pilings plowed into the docks during the night, and 8 of them were still lodged in or on the piers when the sun came up in the morning as the hurricane was coming onto shore far to the south. When the water subsided, the staff was left with a huge cleanup across our 18 acres of marina. But the piers came out in very good shape, beaten but still mainly intact. All of the buildings and structures suffered little damage, and within 48 hours were cleaned and ready to open as the power was restored to the facility.
    The convenience store, clubhouse and main pier opened for limited business on Wednesday, and to full operation on Thursday as power was restored to the pedestals on the piers. On Friday the marina diesel pumps were brought back on line, and Dowry Creek is now pumping diesel, which is hard to come by at this time anywhere else on the Pungo or Pamlico Rivers.
    The Marina is fully open and receiving boats, although in a limited capacity over the next several weeks as the repairs are made to damaged sections of the pier. The high speed internet is 100% functional across the entire facility, laundry and clubhouse fully functional, diesel pumps in operation (and marine gas expected to be up and running by Sunday or Monday at the latest), and boat septic pump-outs back in operation.
    In addition, Dowry Creek Marina also offers day passes, for boats that want to either anchor in Dowry Creek and come in by dinghy, or just pull in to the pier during the day for up to 5 or 6 hours between 9 am and 4 pm. For a small fee, boats not spending the night at the pier can use the internet, clubhouse, free laundry and showers, barbeque grills, and shuttle service to the Belhaven stores and restaurants for re-supply.

  • An Update from New Bern Grand Marina, New Bern, NC, off the Neuse River


    New Bern Grand Marina Yacht Club

    The New Bern Grand Marina, A CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, lies in the heart of downtown New Bern, North Carolina, along Trent River’s northern banks between Trent River highway and railroad bridges. New Bern took a direct hit from Florence and the community has experienced extensive flooding.

     

    All,
    Millissa here,
    I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for their rock-solid and uplifting feedback regarding how the entire team (staff and or marina community) pooled together to secure the marina for Florence. I’m nothing less than amazed by the support of the local and extended boating community and their genuine concern. Jeremy and team have been tasked with an extensive list of tasks that would frazzle the minds of most, but are relentlessly pushing the marina forward to the next phase of updates an repairs and will assume an aggressive round of replacements and updates in the upcoming months. They are exhausted so please be patient. Not a single one of us would enjoy most of the things they are doing.
    READ MORE!
    Since my client acquired the property, a progressive list of updates and repairs have been made to the marina on a planned schedule, however this next round of updates and repairs may prove to be a bit more extensive as we must seek the counsel of marine contractors. As most would agree, this next phase will ensure our beloved marina continues to be one of the best and most affordable destination marinas in eastern North Carolina, so again, please be patient as we move forward. 

    Also, all ramps to the docks have now been repaired. All docks are accessible and now also have water.

     
    Remember, through the miry mud of weary tired souls, the best efforts of many will make us grand. 
     
    Thank you again for being who you are! 
     
    (Please see an important message from Jeremy below)
     
    Millissa
     
    —————————————————————————————————————————————-
    Important Message – Hurricane Florence Aftermath Preparation & Instructions
     
       As you come back to the marina please take into account all the work vehicles and trucks in the area.  Note-be aware of tripping hazards on the docks as repairs are being made.
     
    Entrance: to the marina and docks: the entry point to the marina will be at the Craven Street walkway. The hotel will be blocked off and there will be a walkway to the marina. This will be the main and only entrance. 
     
    ID’s: everyone needs to have IDs to walk around town. The NB police and National Guard will be checking IDs and your reason to be downtown. It’s also recommended to have a document from your boat. I am providing the Police and Hotel staff a list of those in the marina to verify their entry. I will have it to them by tomorrow.
     
    Ramps: I am working on the ramps for F and D dock. I hope to have them up in the next couple days. 
     
    Power: expect power to be off for the next month. I have spoke to the city and we are on the list. All transformers for each dock have been damaged.
     
    Water: I was working on finding the water main today and will continue tomorrow. The main has been covered up by sand, dirt and debris. Unfortunately it’s been a bear to find. I hope to find it soon to assess any damage and effect repair quickly.
     
    Mail/ Packages: all mail and packages will come to the sales office for now. I have advised the postal service and will advised UPS and FEDEX. 
     
    We will be here everyday to try and assist with limited hours at the Administrative Office, but will be on the docks and about the marina so please call the cell number posted on the door for assistance. Contractors and adjusters will be around. Please give them room to evaluate, repair, and do their jobs.
     
    Thank you all for your effort, patience, and resiliency. We will do our best to answer any calls, texts, and emails as they come. A current time, we do not have phone or internet service at either office, so please give us time to respond by cell.
    Thank you,

    Jeremy McConnell

  • LNM: Multiple NC ICW Nav Aids Damaged or Off-Station

    Kudos to the USCG for publishing this list so quickly. The list below is certain to be augmented. And this is a good time to remind you that following any substanial storm, aids to navigation may have been moved off-station and should be considered suspect when there is disagreement with your charts/chartplotter. Idle speed, your eye on your depthfinder and a healthy skepticism are in order for these days after Florence. See NAV ALERT.

  • Special Report on NC/SC AICW Conditions by Tom Hale

    Our sincerest thanks to Tom Hale for sharing this detailed look at Waterway conditions following Hurricane Florence in North and South Carolina.

    Sept. 17, 2018

    As previously suggested and as hoped, the Northern part of the ICW between Norfolk and Beaufort NC is partially operational. Some facilities are fully up and running. Some facilities are damaged but running.  Some facilities are closed. However the ICW seems passable with dockage, fuel and water available in places between Norfolk and Beaufort, NC.  Those facilities which are open for business are anxious to have cruisers come through.  But be aware that many homes and businesses are flooded and already damaged.  Be even more careful about your wake, as in flooding conditions your wake is hitting homes and yards. The ICW south of Georgetown SC is operating normally. READ MORE!

    But that 125 miles between Beaufort, NC and New River (Myrtle Beach)  is still flooding, is lacking electrical power and phone lines,  and is several days away from being able to fully report, and weeks or months from being back to normal water levels.

    • Great Bridge bridge and lock are fully operational.
    • According to USACE Norfolk District Dismal Swamp Canal is open and the locks and bridges are operating on a normal schedule.
    • All is OK at Coinjock. Over 20 boats have left and headed to Hatteras, Wanchese,  Beaufort and points south! They have not heard of any reported problems in any of the canals and creeks to Beaufort NC.
    • Alligator River Swing Bridge is operational.
    • Dowry Creek has power to the office and heads, still working on the dock power. The water is below the docks but is still up 2.5 feet.  USCG has been through Alligator Pungo Canal to check ATONs. There are damaged ATONs.
    • Wilkerson Bridge now at about 60.5 feet
    • River Forrest Marina has no fuel but is taking reservations.  Transient space is limited to smaller vessels. Grocery store is open, downtown restaurants are “drying out” after 4’ of flood water.  Main streets are dry this morning, but only just barely.  Many parts of town are still flooded. .
    • 9/17 A tug and barge headed north in AP canal this morning, so commercial traffic is resuming.
    • Hobucken USCG has covered about 20% of their territory.   So far AP canal to G7 in Adams creek has been checked.  ICW has damaged ATONs.
    • Jarrett Bay is closed. No Power. Area is devastated.  2 USCG boats went north bound in Adams Creek this morning 9/17.
    • Homer Smith Docks had no damage.  Still has no power but is taking transients.  They report that boats are moving up and down the Beaufort waterways with no trouble.
    • Morehead City Marina is not answering their phone.
    • Beaufort City Docks are operational. No Power as of noon 9/17. A generator is wired to the fuel pumps, so fuel is available.  2 x  100’ yachts are inbound from Coinjock today.
    • Onslow Beach Bridge phone not working 9/17
    • Surf City Bridge phone not working 9/17
    • Figure 8 Bridge phone not working 9/17
    • Wrightsville beach bridge 910.256.2886 not answering 9/17/18
    • Southport NC: All the marinas were spared major damage.  There is still no electrical power in the area.  The city potable water system has had several major breaks and  it is unclear how long it will take to get the water flowing again.  All of the roads leading into Southport are washed out and flooded.  At this time there is no vehicular access to Southport.  The Cape Fear river is expected to crest later this week.  There will be significant debris washing though.
    • Myrtle Beach YC is fully operational with power and water. Center console boats are running in the ICW
    • Wrightsville Beach Bridge not answering 9/17/18
    • All bridges in Horry County SC (Myrtle Beach area) are operational! Socastee Swing Bridge, Barefoot Landing and Little River Swing Bridge. Flood waters are still rising inland and it is entirely possible that the bridges will be  non-operational at some point  as the rivers crest. The 65’ bridges aren’t! Water still high and rising.   After Matthew it took weeks for the water to get back to normal levels.
    • Myrtle Beach YC is fully operational. Center console boats are running in the ICW
    • Osprey Marina reports that they survived with no damage. The Waccamaw crest is expected Thursday . It could be worse than Mathew.  Expect floods and a slow speed zone through Socastee.  The 65 foot bridges in Socastee are far less than 65′ right now.
    • Port of Georgetown is open. Marinas are open and selling fuel.
    • McClellanville, Leland Oil open reports USCG has checked channel. They have not heard of any problems.
    • Isle of Palms Marina is fully operational and taking transients. No word yet on the condition of ICW to Georgetown. No boat traffic in ICW except center consoles and work boats.
    • Ben Sawyer Bridge is now operational and back on normal schedule.
    • Port of Charleston Open. Charleston Marina is taking transients.
  • Special Report from New Bern Grand Marina, New Bern, NC, off the Neuse River

    New Bern Grand Marina Yacht Club

    The New Bern Grand Marina, A CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, lies in the heart of downtown New Bern, North Carolina, along Trent River’s northern banks between Trent River highway and railroad bridges. New Bern took a direct hit from Florence and experienced extensive flooding.

    I want to first start by saying that we hope everyone is safe and out of harms way. I have finally got cell signal to send information out.
    Hurricane Florence definitely put the resilience of NC, New Bern, and NBGM to the test. This community, both the town and marina is tough and we took quite a few shots to the chin and survived. In my experience, the fight is just beginning…. finding normal again. READ MORE!

    This will take time, but we will. I wanted to make sure to thank all the boaters for all their hard work preparing for this storm especially those who helped the dock staff pull sails and tie up lines. We appreciate all the help and efforts, it showed the strength of our marina community. I want to personally thank my dock staff for their long tired hours securing the marina. Make sure each of you personally thank them for their efforts. One of those staff members lost his boat in the storm, and he willingly worked on his off days to help others.
    Those looking to return: New Bern has curfews set to expire Monday at 7 am. Travel will be hectic and long as many try and return to Eastern North Carolina. There is extreme flooding inland coming from the rain fall. Make sure your checking the NC DOT and NCReady.gov sites for entry patterns. Power companies are working hard to restore power to many. If you see them, say thank you.
    As for the marina: we had three boats sink and two break free with one wandering around B dock unable to be reached. I was there yesterday and did see some boat damage but they were still afloat and riding strong. Some of you were there helping many, thank you for all your efforts.
    All ramps had damage and restricting access to the docks. If your adamant on getting on the docks, be safe and move in pairs together. Some boards have damage and watch your step. We will begin our evaluation and repair of the ramps on Monday. It will take a lot and may take many days.
    Understand that all safety concerns will be taken care of first before anything else!!!!!
    We will be going through the docks over the next week or more to make sure they are safe. I could not get on F or G dock because of the elements, opposing forces of current and wind, and I am unsure of its status. In my opinion, F and G dock did it’s job and protected the marina.
    The heavy hitter is our electric. The surge was so high, we had storm water get into our power panels and transformers. It’s unknown on the time-frame of repair. I hope it’s not long, but until the water recedes, we can’t get a good assessment on the damage.
    The dock master office took three feet into the office and will take a while to clean up and repair. The Sales office will be the dock master office until further notice. I was unable to check the shower facility or laundry. I expect both to be seriously flooded. I will attempt to go into town today and hopefully not get pushed out by officials. Water is rising and falling with the tides still but not near what is was.
    If your planning on coming back and staying on your boat I would recommend you explore options for alternative housing for a period of time. Power will take a while to be safely restored and amenities fixed. We don’t know the status of our pump out facility either, the boat appeared to make it, but if I don’t have somewhere to put it, I can’t pump it.
    I will do my best to send something out daily. Thank you all for effort, patience, and resiliency. I will do my best to answer any calls, texts, and emails as they come. Please give me time as I’m trying to answer many.
    Thank you,
    Jeremy McConnell Dock Master

  • Disaster Information from US Senator for North Carolina

    Friends and Neighbors,

    This week, North Carolina will be experiencing severe weather, including strong winds and a large amount of rainfall as Hurricane Florence makes landfall. There is potential for power outages and major flooding in low-lying areas, and the most important thing you can be doing is to start preparing for a direct hit. This includes:
