More on Waterway Debris Dangers from Barefoot Marina, AICW Statute Mile 353.5, Myrtle Beach, SC
Barefoot Marina, A CRUISERS NET SPONSOR!, is located on the western side of the AICW in North Myrtle Beach. Our thanks to AGLCA member, Mike Brown, for this report and photo. See Report and Photos, which, along which today’s photo, confirm the warnings issued here on Cruisers Net about debris in the Waterway. One submerged log like the one below can ruin your day!
Larry, here is today’s debris. I wouldn’t want my props to meet this hunk of wood. You can see how big it is by the size of the boat hook. I bet it was 12” in diameter. There are still some tree trunks, say 4 ft long by 4” diameter coming thru but not nearly as many as before. Of course, who knows what is under water. I hear that we are just about down to normal water height here but that the homes near the Socastee are still flooded and that water will be heading our way. I have very limited internet here at Barefoot so I don’t know if I can post to the AGLCA forum or not. Do what you want with this info and photo. Thanks, Mike
