Let's see, in the video there is a red bout on the port side of the boat as its facing the shore. Yep got all those nav rules down, 'red, right, returning', but I always have to get out and throw a rock to remember which is left and right; anyways I can see a red thingy, so we're OK. Maybe they just do it different in dixie (that'l get me some comment...)

Is the buoy you are talking about in the last pic in the link in the first post?

I saw the bouy in the video on the Mail link, which pictures the coasties going out.
Also, apologies to friends in the south. I was just thinking, gambling boat, redneck....

Read a report that the boat backed off the bar on its own power without a tow, at high tide.

Was the boat taking bets on getting off unassisted, vs, towed? Now grounding is another danger of gambling.

On the ICW, red buoys/markers are toward the mainland. Not so out in open water where this ship should have been.

One chartplotter caused this? Yeah. Right.

From the article...

"The 174-foot-long Escapade was about 1.8 miles off the north end of Tybee Island, a popular beach destination east of Savannah, in the Calibogue Sound near Hilton Head, South Carolina, the Coast Guard said."

That's a pretty good distance from the ICW.

The one pic with the jetty in it has it looking like the pic was taken from a boat in the Savannah River mouth looking towards Hilton Head.

....but the red buoy in the video doesn't show up on my charts anywhere's near the reported 1.8 miles north of Tybee.

The boat was on course, he just got the high and low tide numbers reversed, no red neck insinuation off course.

Is it true the that the first 125 passengers off the vessel were young kids from Columbia?

Local news said the same. "Boat grounded on the rocks" while showing the picture of all sand. Great editors they have there at Channel 4.

I've been in and around that area, and if you hit a rock, it's because you brought it from home, that, or you're on the jetty.

There is a red 2 there that they move around as that shoal is expanding. Shows on ENCs when updated, not some rasters. See the G3 ESE of Bloody Point. Was through there about 5 years ago.
