DAY 79 - BEUAFORT TO CHARLESTON CITY MARINA, CHARLESTON (70.7 mi.) (Mi. 539 to Mi. 469.2)
Saturday, July 22, 2017 ~Today we are leaving early at 6:25 am which is hi-mid-tide. It is cooler outside but the rising sun does make navigating a bit hard on the eyes. The ICW here is wide with good water depths and there are a lot of areas where we can do over 20 knots per hour. We arrived at 11:20 am which was almost a 5 hour run. Our slip at Charleston City Marina is on the Mega Dock. This Mega Dock extends 1,530 feet and is the longest free standing, floating fuel dock in the Southeast. There is diesel available every 300 feet along the dock.
|Sunrise at 6:30 am leaving Beaufort.|
|Four boats rafted together.|
|Dolphins playing ahead of us. We are always afraid|
that we might hit them.
|McKinley Washington Bridge with fishing boats right in|
the middle of our channel.
|Long docks so typical of this low country area.|
|Elliott Cut - A very narrow, no wake channel for .4 miles.|
