Below is the 10/10/2015 Cruisersnet report.
Good Morning Fellow Boaters,
As anyone who has sailed the Chesapeake will tell you, two of the greatest risks to navigation following an unusually high tide are submerged debris and off-station markers.
High flood waters, such as being experienced now along the east coast, can bring any number of floating and submerged objects - logs, docks, chairs, even trees - into normally safe channels.
Markers, especially in narrow channels, can be floated out of position by the flood waters. We are already hearing from readers about off-station markers, such as:
"Lockwood folly inlet , green can in wrong place, I ran aground and the coast guard watched as sea tow tried to pull us off." 10/9/2015
Advice is to keep a sharp lookout forward and slow down in areas of noted flooding like those of South Carolina. See http://cruisersnet.net/?p=153080
Watch the shoreline: if you see debris piled along the shore, some of that could be just under the surface in the channel ahead of you.
The conditions you might experience in the Waccamaw will also be true near Georgetown and Charleston. Again, if you have questions, check with any of our many South Carolina SPONSORS through that area for local conditions. Phone numbers are found in our SC Marina Directory.
The SSECN Team is pulling for you and we want you to safely navigate through our beautiful waterways without mishap!
