Navigation Update
The Carolina Beach Inlet Association and others were recently notified of a change in the channel currently being dredged in Carolina Beach Inlet.

You may recall, there has been a "dog-leg" that you had to navigate, and the buoys would help you through it.

Big Change - Don't Follow the Buoys!!

The ACE is dredging the channel straight out toward the sea buoy.

Meaning the channel is straight, no longer a dog-leg, so the buoys are NOT aligned correctly. It is not advised that you follow the buoys, but rather read the water and navigate accordingly, and straight to the sea buoy.

Should you not feel comfortable navigating the water, another option would be to follow one of the charter boats out, or use Masonboro Inlet until the buoys are reset.

We hope to have more information from the US Coast Guard and their timetable to reset the buoys, and will send out an update afterwards.

Yes. We’ve been running out that way since back in December as it was getting deeper. It should hold better for a while.

So a friend is moving his Bavaria Ocean 47 sailboat down that way and he drafts right at 7 feet. Going out that inlet with it bumpy he would need to look for minimum 10 depth.

Looking at the survey it does not look promising

How is the inlet to navigate for larger sailboats or should he stick with Masonboro or motor down to Southport/Cape Fear?

I personally would not use CBI for that. Stick to Masonboro. I draw 5 and its not worth the risk, at least for me.

Thanks Steve that what he figured too. He was looking for a slip near there and is now going to look more near Wrightsville. He has Bavaria Ocean 47
