Reminder: Shallow Water in Problem Stretch south of McClellanville, AICW Statute Miles 430-433

The waterway south of McClellanville all the way to the Ben Sawyer Bridge has been shoaling for years and we thank Charles Ridley for this reminder warning. SSECN still recommends mid to high tide for passage through this section and see /161140 for another problem with this area.

Traveler 12-29-16. Left Isle of Palms for Harborwalk, Georgetown, SC. If almost 2 hours on either side of low, don’t go thru the stretch of about 10 miles south of McClellandville. If draw over about 2′ won’t make it.

    On 10/14/17, 1 1/2 hours after low water, my wife, Pat, and I traveled through Harbor River south of McClellanville and found no less that 6′ of water in the middle of the channel. The worst section was between Day Markers G “35” and R “42”.

    Tuesday 7 March 17 McLellanville R42 to G35 about 15min before mlw. Made it through by zig-zagging at 2-3kts searching for water. We draw 4ft but we have a 24ft beam so we need a very wide path.
