Hi Jim

That submerged seawall could make for a very bad day.

From Active Captain

"Reedy Island Dike"
Approach through the marked opening in the dike between G1 and R2. The G1 light was not working (July 2012). There is a small island south of the entrance and is part of the dike that is not shown on many charts.

"Anchor behind the Reedy Island dike near Augustine Beach. The center between the dike and shore has about 20 feet of water. Current at mid tide is strong.The entrance depth is better than 6 feet. The dike is visible at low water and not visible at high water.
