Post-Matthew Report from Lockwood Folly and Shalotte Inlet Intersections,


Just received word from Carmen Salemno that Lockwood Folly Inlet and Shalotte Inlet AICW Intersections are passable and that the nav aids appear to be on-station. Shallowest spot was at G81 in the Shalotte intersection. He also reported extensive damage to private docks along the Waterway. Our thanks for this report goes to Carmen and Cathy Salemno who are traveling south in their Grand Banks, having ridden out Matthew at Southport Marina.
See /160354 for a post-Matthew survey and report on Lockwood Folly.

    LOCAL KNOWLEDGE – This is an extremely tight squeeze through here at MLW for all but the shallowest draft boats. Check the most recent USACE survey at: http://saw-nav.usace.army.mil/AIWW/CFRLR/T_19-20/Tangent_19-20.pdf.

    We took our work boat down there after Matthew. Between R80A and R82, we followed the USACE track and found 5′ MLW with rapid shoaling on the green side. We tried the same run again closer to the red side and found 6.4′ MLW. The challenge is that it’s narrow through there.

    Suggest transiting this inlet on a mid and rising tide and favoring a line between R80A and R82 – perhaps 10′ off. Slow and easy.
