Re: ICW Shoaling Post Hurricane

Good luck to you SB1. Maybe keep an eye on the thread Steady started, link above. It may end up containing a few gems that may help. As you, the missus and Ducky head south please stay safe!

Two years after Sandy there was a lot of shoaling very evident.
Donít ask how I know. Topsail was our demise of our trip. Landed in a tug prop spin basin, bobbing around like a duckling in a bowl. Seatow would not pull us out the way we went in. Result was a ghost piling in the sand taking out our rudder and causing lots of other damage too Seatow doesnít no the word accountability.
Your 6-4 , do your diligent research, then go outside at the appropriate location.
Likewise going back in.
Be careful, and watch the skies, and get local knowledge, and that will be scant for underwater dangers....

Re: ICW Shoaling Post Hurricane

Regardless of whether it moves it out or deposits more, the channels are going to move. They will be deeper in some spots and shallower in others.

Re: ICW Shoaling Post Hurricane

The thread was just a general "wonder" thing. I went down south 2 years ago within a week after Matthew and last year was going up/down the ICW after Irma.I've touched bottom and backed off 3 times the past 2 years. Got stuck and waited an hour for the tide once. Have never had to have my 6'4" boat towed off. In talking to other cruisers the towing seems to happen to the 5' draft boats because think they can "make it".

Re: ICW Shoaling Post Hurricane

I think a flotilla should work well with boats going in reverse order of their draft and passing messages back after each section. Some O/B-powered runabout needing 18" and then someone at 2', then 3', ... well, you get the idea. Could be fun, but don't forget the tow company memberships.

Re: ICW Shoaling Post Hurricane

Shoaling is always a problem but after Sandy we had more trouble with debris, trees and crap floating in the water. Finally, got outside for a little relief but there was a lot crap outside too.

Re: ICW Shoaling Post Hurricane

FYI: I have just posted a very lengthy report (made by other knowledgeable ICW cruisers today). It is in the ongoing ICW Status Reports After Hurricanes in 2018 thread here:

ICW Status Reports After Hurricanes in 2018

I suggest if one is going to be traveling up or down the ICW during the next 30-60 days, subscribe to that thread for more reports etc. Also check Active Captain and Waterway Guide, but the thread may consolidate some reports and observations that may not make it on either of those sites.

Re: ICW Shoaling Post Hurricane

That was a great update.
Are you planning on any others.
Looking to go down the ICW in early November.
Yes I do look at Active Captain's "comment" section.
You should note the DOCKWA has a section on the website, that is updating the status of marina's that are in the DOCKWA system.
If you ar not familiar; check out Dockwa.com.


Thanks for your efforts to advising as to the status of what is happening on the ICW

You think its may be caued by first timers listening to the experienced sailors saying go for it your ok, someone has to take one for the team ...
