Severe Shoaling, AICW Statute Mile 360.5, 9/8/2016


This area of shoaling is at the northern end of an already narrow channel between the NC/SC state line and Socastee Bridge. This shoaling will be a problem for deep draft vessels. Mid to high tide is recommended.

SOUTH CAROLINA – MYRTLE GROVE SOUND AND CAPE FEAR RIVER TO CASINO CREEK – LITTLE RIVER-WINYAH BAY: Severe Shoal and Temporary Buoy 22A Established.
Severe shoaling has been reported in the vicinity of Little River-Winyah Bay Daybeacon 22A (LLNR 33710.5 [33°44.5204N / 078°51.9515W, 33.742006 / -78.865859]) and Daybeacon 25 (LLNR 33735 [33°43.9158N / 078°53.2605W, 33.731930 / -78.887675]). A temporary Buoy 22A has been set in approximate position 33-44.5094N/078-51.9702W (33°44.5094N / 078°51.9702W, 33.741823 / -78.866170) . Little River-Winyah Bay Daybeacon 22A has been temporarily changed from a non-lateral aid to an NW on pile (diamond shape, white day boards with an orange reflective boarder). The approximate width of the channel from the pier on the east side to TEMP Buoy 22A on the west side is roughly 60ft. The pier on the east side is not lit and the width of the channel with the extreme shoaling on the west side poses a serious hazard to navigation. Mariners are advised to use extreme caution while transiting the area. Chart 11502, 11504 LNM 36/16
