[EXPIRED] CAUTION: Grounding and Sinking South of Ponce Inlet, AICW Statute Mile 843
This grounding and resultant sinking occurred in the Waterway between the Inlet and New Smyrna Beach. The article does not give an exact location, but Cruisers’ Net has received reports of shoaling at Marker #18, as well as a Local Notice to Mariners warning of a shoal extending into the channel. See link below for the Navigation Alert posted in January. Note that the sinking is reported to be in the AICW, not the Inlet itself.
The attached article says it all – Ponce Inlet and I might add Saint Augustine Inlet are DANGEROUS and should be approached with EXTREME CAUTION.
