Herl Report: Lockwoods Folly, AICW Mile 321 and Myrtle Beach Yacht Club, Mile 346
The intersection of the ICW and Lockwoods Folly has been a Problem Stretch for years and requires almost annual dredging. Mid to high tide is recommended for passage. For a recent report on Lockwoods Folly, see /?p=150841. A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR! Myrtle Beach Yacht Club on Coquina Harbor has been a great stopping place and a friend to cruisers for years. The entrance to Coquina Harbor lies on the north side of the Waterway opposite Marker #13.
North Myrtle Beach
Another good run and luck is still with us. As we approached Lockwoods Folly area, notorious for shoaling, there was a Coast Guard boat at the spot getting ready to move the buoys. When we came through they contacted us and several others to talk everyone through and we had not a problem.
As usual at North Myrtle Beach Yacht Club we were treated well. Again we could not do anything because of my foot. Just one night. We were here in June and had a great time.
