Re: Problems on ICW from Georgetown to Beaufort, SC?

I see some talk about Jekyll Creek above and this concerns me. Jekyll Creek is in South Georgia and the OP is inquiring about the route from Georgetown, SC to Beaufort, SC. When leaving Georgetown the first concerns might be with care for cross currents while crossing the North & South Santee Rivers. The shallowest area will be from McClellenville on down to Graham Creek. You'll have 7 feet here at low, but it's easy to drift off the best line into 6' or 5'. There will also be a cross current set that can take you off the best course when passing the inlets north of Isle of Palms when approaching Charleston. South of Charleston there will be concerns with the green cans entering Dawho Creek after leaving the Wadmalaw River. I would stay within about 100' of these green cans. Next, take care to stay a little to port where Fishing Creek heads off to starboard after the Dawho Bridge,-this shoal is building. After Fenwick Cut and the Ashepoo River give the Red marker about 50 yds before turning up the Coosaw River. All is a cakewalk to Beaufort after your'e in the Coosaw.

Take care and joy, Aythya crew

Thank you for all the replies! We made it safely through SC and Ga -- just bumped a couple of times. We learned to watch the tides, and all went well. Happy cruising, everyone!
