NC, GA River channels

Before I go looking at charts.. Would some of you southern salts know which rvers have channels inland? I'm just wondering about sailboats getting closer to TN from the east if that's possible. ( not real close I'm sure) Just wondering. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be living in Chattanoga someday and may want to keep my boat east rather then south. No definate plans yet.

I know you can take the ICW from Mobile on the gulf and all the way up to TN, but from the east I know nada about those rivers.
I'm gonna do some goggle earth views next.
thanks!

You've got 6 major lakes on the Tennessee RIver (including Barkley on the Cumberland) that you have access to from Chattanoga. And Kentucky Lake is actually 34 miles longer than the Chesapeake Bay. Driving east would be around an 8 hour trip, not to mention the gas.

Check out this link. It's a map of the waterways that have access to the oceans.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Errr... hows this?

Boating
Santee Cooper Lakes attract people from all around the world. With 315 miles of shoreline along Lake Marion alone, millions of people find this to offer a variety of outdoor recreational activities. The creation of a navigable route from Columbia to Charleston was one objective of the Santee Cooper project. Beginning where the Santee River flows into Lake Marion to the lock at the Pinopolis Dam, a clearly defined waterway allows boaters to travel the 122 miles to the ocean. Passage through the Santee Cooper lakes to Charleston is made possible by going through the navigation lock, which is located adjacent to the power plant. The distance down the Cooper River to Charleston is 48 miles. The lock is in operation daily from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.

And:
there are several coastal rivers and estuaries that may be explored, including Albemarle Sound, Pamilco River, Neuse River, New River and Cape Fear River, all in North Carolina, and the Pee Dee River in South Carolina. The Savannah River is generally navigable to Augusta, Georgia, a distance of approximately 200 miles

Going to Augusta is supposed to be tough!!! Also there is no lock to get into the lake once you get there!!!!! Chattanooga has a lake!!!! We brought our boat up the Tn-tom waterway to Wheeler lake. A lot of locks and takes a couple of weeks. The lower stretch below Coffeeville is the most remote but above the first lock there is not a lot of current. It is a long drive from Chattanooga to Columbia SC.

There's one CSX railroad bridge that requires a 24 hour notice to be raised.
Getting 50 miles inland from Charleston might be interesting as a trip...but it is a long way from Tennessee...and a lot of uphill portages!
