There are some spots in SC where you have to be concerned about the depth, especially with a relatively deep draft boat.

Your correct that most are in Georgia. But these two need tidal consideration.

If those two are bench marks, there are several others to include but not limited tide planning.... that challenge but dont alter my planning for my 4 foot draft.

Little Mud river near Darien, GA
Hell Gate south of Savannah
Dawho and Wadmalaw river junction SC
Probably the stretch from McClellanville to Isle of
Palms, SC.

If we are talking Beaufort SC, not NC, I would advise caution in the area of the Brown, Mason (not Masonboro) , lockwoods Folly and Shalotte inlets and the ICW, good idea to call your tow company's local provider or the USCG for the latest. Or use that Nordhavn and go outside at Beaufort NC.

My plan would be (if depths allow) to go to Beaufort NC by icw then outside down to Fort Lauderdale- thanks

With Hurricane Irma pointed towards the East Coast (I know to early to tell, but not too early for plans B through Z)..... may be a good time to hole up near Norfolk to see what happens.

Dawho Creek is between Chuck and Beaufort SC. It is getting pretty skinny. We draw 4.5 but now we plan to transit that spot on a rising tide.

Scary to see that ICW Cruise ship coming through there ....would love to be a fly on the wall of the bridge for that transit.
