HARKERS ISLAND The U.S. Coast Guard has temporarily discontinued five navigational aids near Cape Lookout National Seashore and Harkers Island, beginning Monday.

According to a press relase from the USCG, heavy shoaling in the vicinity of Barden Inlet has progressed over the past few months, making the waterway inaccessible to many vessels.






The aids to navigation listed below no longer accurately mark the waterway. The current position of the markers may be misleading to mariners, which can be more dangerous than having no aids to navigation. Mariners transiting through Barden Inlet do so at their own risk.

The aids to navigation to be removed are as follows:

Barden Inlet Buoy 27 (LLNR 29247).

Barden Inlet Buoy 28 (LLNR 29250).

Barden Inlet Buoy 30 (LLNR 29253).

Barden Inlet Buoy 31 (LLNR 29257).

Yes. Gonna be fun to watch on Labor Day weekend. Problem with removing those and leaving the others is going to lead people, that don't know any better, to believe it's a straight shot. Sea Tow and Tow Boat are going to make a lot of money off of that decision. Really could be dangerous.

They must have heard I will be coming into town for a week on Sunday. Hahaha.

Will certainly have a lot of people on high ground. Hard to believe they can't mark "the best" route through there...

I don't understand that. I've been through there numerous times this year albeit not for a couple weeks now. I thought those cans were actually pretty good. Has it gotten that bad recently? I had a harder time on the run up to s-turns going outbound than anywhere else. I hesitate to even try it unless mid to high. Makes me very nervous coming through there and watching the bottom reading go sub 2. Which is really 3 since my 'ducer is giving up 15". There's more water in the s-turns than there.

I'm with you MarkA. Maybe they aren't as accurate as proposed, but didn't seem that bad. I do hope the "temporarily" part will be short lived or will be discontinued during the colder months.

If they would spend a little time (the CG) and look on the backside of the shoals where the ferry boat runs they would find plenty of water to mark a new channel and forget about the S turn. I'm going to follow the ferry through there and mark me a new route even though I've only had one problem in the S and that's when the first green bouy was missing earlier this year and I was running a new boat without a track. I knew that bouy was missing when I approached the big bar but didn't go deep enough in for the first turn and hit the bar on the right. Was cold getting out there to push it off in April. Sunny days, no problem but on cloudy days like that one it's hard to see the hazards.

I agree, I saw 3.5 at dead low tide just past the permanent marker heading to the S turn. I think that is the worst.

I cheat the can coming down Harkers Channel and the permanent marker making the right turn into the lookout channel. I cheat the last green prior to the S turn as well. I have found 5 feet at low tide but it is a real small channel and if I remember it is on the green side on your way up to the S turn. You can cheat the red at the apex of the S turn too but you need to stay away from the last red in the S turn. That bar is moving out pretty far between those two reds.

I stay up out of the water at about 30 mph or so. The only time I have touched is when I had to slow down.

Ran it Thursday at low tide using an old track and the pipes someone drove. No problems, just hard to see those pipes and sort of weird feeling without the markers. They even put a shoal marker on the first green pole marker coming from Harkers.

It is far more dangerous without those cans there. 😡😡😡
Hope they put them back soon. So frustrating..... I remember when there were some nice big boat charters at HI.
