Our second day on Ubiquitous, motoring up Intracoastal, north of Beaufort, SC, we found a channel entrance, indicated on the chart to be indeed part of the ICW and supposedly 12' at low tide. You know that feeling when the diesel is humming along nicely and you look over to the shore, and...the land is not moving, you glance down at the GPS, and see 0/nmh and CRAP! Apparently dredged channels have a habit of drifting. So, while we waited for the tide to lift us, we plotted a new course that took us out to the mouth of the ocean and back in to a different leg to reconnect to the ICW. Took about 45 mins to regain buoyancy and hit the new course. Kind of nice to get that out of the way on only our second day as new sailors!
