Grounding at Shalotte Inlet Problem Stretch, AICW Statute Mile 330

An earlier Problem Stretch Report confirmed that the shallowest spot was at G81 in the Shalotte intersection and that the other nav aids appear to be on-station. That shallow water at G81 has now been confirmed by the keel of Darryl Desmarteau’s vessel. We are glad he has able to back off with no damage. Thank you, Darryl, for your report. The current advice for this intersection: hug the Red!

Travelling N on 10/14/2016 in trawler with 3′ 8″ draft. about 1h before low tide. Ran hard aground following mid channel course between G 81 and R 80,. I was able to back off and continue staying close to R 80. it was like a wall and in my view G 81 is essentially on top of a shoal extending well to port.
