More on Depths at Hell Gate, AICW Problem Stretch, Statute Mile 602
The Waterway follows a short and narrow, man-made canal known as Hell Gate between the Vernon and Ogeechee Rivers. These waters have been an “AICW Problem Stretch” for years and mid to high tide is recommended for vessels drawing 5ft or more.
Today, Jan. 5th 2015 went thru Hell Gate at 14:00. Found only 2.7 feet at low tide. Very shallow, luckily my PDQ 34 power cat made it.
Sailors be aware!
