Yup exactly. They won't put permanent markers there because the channel shifts a little each year. My call to aids to navigation has not been returned...Phil, I noticed that a couple weeks ago. If you know that channel at 18th, you can line up with the last house. During high tide it's not too bad if you take it slow. Low tide, I'd avoid it if possible. How can we get some permanent markers along there?
Total Bullshit! :thumbsdown:
I saw more marine police, coast guard, and coast guard auxiliary out there than ever before this weekend and if their true reason to be out there is for boater safety they would be putting out channel markers!
It's not.....and the stick markers are only state...USCG has and will have nothing to do with them.
The CG moved #452 over to the east this year. It has been moved too far over, the channel is less then 30ft wide now and there is plenty of water on the wrong side of it.FWIW and slightly different topic but the channel at marker 452 in Grassy Sound is now at most, 75 ft wide. If you are more than 50 ft from that marker at the bottom half of the tide you are in the sand. Lots of chocolate rooster tails this weekend.
