ICW Anchorage North – Claiborne’s Review

Several potential anchorages lie along the AICW’s western and southerly flanks between markers #134 and #140. Depths consistently run at least 6 feet or better on all these havens. Just be sure to stay well away from the surrounding shoreline. Depths shelve quickly upward as the banks are approached.
Note that this anchorage is wide open to wakes produced by larger power vessels passing on the nearby AICW. We were once rudely awakened here at 4:00 A.M. by a 65-foot Hatteras cruising by at top speed.
With westerly winds in the offing, consider dropping anchor west of the gap between markers #135 and #137. These waters sit near the `sy’ notation on chart 12206. Don’t even think about getting caught here in a strong blow from the north, or even with fresh easterlies wafting.
