He can't force you out of the channel...but reason would say 2 can't occupy the same water....so looking for a shouldering spot till he passed would have been helpful.

But if he didn't security call, wasn't flying RAM dayshapes and admitted he couldn't see you...boy would I have a field day in a hearing with that guy.

A tug with dredge pipe ran me out of the channel just north of Charleston awhile back...I had all my ducks in a row but slithered right back into the channel so I didn't make too big a deal about it.

These guys in the ICW are taking big risks if they ever slam someone unless they get their act together.

Egregious-glad to hear from someone down your way. I lived in that area for a lot of years. My son lives in Sunset.

That section of the ICW, from Little River almost all the way to the Waccamaw is a pain, especially when you do meet a barge. From my days there, most used to issue a warning at either end so you would know they were coming.

It's a good practice to hail on 16 prior to entering the Rockpile to avoid any oncoming traffic regardless of the size, because once you are in there, turning around may be an option you regret. I suggest putting it in reverse!
