Low Tide Passage Through Shallotte/AICW Intersection Statute Mile 330

The intersection of Shallotte Inlet and the Waterway has been an infamous Problem Stretch for years, but this report from experienced cruiser, Roger Long, holds promise for a safe Spring Migration.

I’ve made these passages [Shallotte and Lockwoods Folly] several times and always found plenty of water. Circumstances required us to transit northbound with .2 feet of water in Shallotte and Lockwoods at dead low. I called TowboatUS for their opinion with our 3’ – 9” draft. He said it shouldn’t be a problem if I knew the route and Lockwoods had just been dredged so should be easy. READ MORE!

We went through Shallotte and never saw less than 5 feet by nearly leaving paint on the first red buoy, R 82. It might have been more difficult with another foot of tide as we wouldn’t have had the bare sandbanks for an additional guide.
