Marker Uncertainty at Browns Inlet/AICW Intersection, Problem Stretch, Statute Mile 237

Our thanks to Kevin and Debbie Stone for this Problem Stretch report. Last dredged in November of 2016, Browns Inlet is a perennial shoaling threat and it is wise to follow the advice Cruisers’ Net has been giving for some time: follow the markers and do NOT follow the Magenta Line in this stretch of the ICW! See an Oct ’17 survey.

Mile 236, Browns Inlet, NC
Green floating markers may not be accurately marking recent shoaling.
Today about 1 hour prior to low tide, a catamaran was aground mid-channel.
Our 4.5′ draft successfully transited close to floating Red 60.
