        Subject: Cumberland Island anchorage ICS SM 694
        Cruising News: Anchored on 8/17/08 in the waterway anchorage adjacent to Cumberland Island at FL G 37. Had a difficult time setting our hook (35 # delta) in 10 feet of water with 7:1 scope. Bottom very hard. Grounded briefly the next morning at low tide. Chart soundings are very liberal! We bounced like a cork with moderate west winds. I\’d suggest bypassing this anchorage for one of several within 5 miles further south.
