Shaw - Blind Bay - deadhead

Odd. This past weenend (May 30th '09) we were in Blind Bay on Shaw Island. There is a deadhead that is not moving. (Maybe the roots are snaired in kelp or weed???)

As you enter the bay with the "Rock Below" sign on your Port and the little island to Starboard, the deadhead is about 150 yds south of the rock sign (making it still on your Port). It's far enough from the moored boats at the south east end of the bay so that it should not interfear with anchoring but if the anchorage is crowded or if after entering you make a Port tack, you could hit it.

About 10" of it sits above the water from low to high tide but the angle of the log changes.

It is not unusual for deadheads to "snag" the bottom. Did you report the deadhead via VHF?

I saw a GIGANTIC deadhead off the fauntleroy ferry dock the other day. Gone by now, I'm sure.

No, I didn't (and I should have) . I usually do when they are in an area where there's traffic or on the move. Wasn't sure what the procedure is for one that's not moving and not in a well traveled lane. Next time I will - Thanks for the reminder.

The "proper" VHF procedure is to issue a short securite message on 16 with the complete message on 06. I usually contact Coast Guard radio on their working channel to see if it has been reported. They then issue a securite message.

I anchored near the exact deadhead you are talking about in Blind Bay several weeks ago, took the dingy out and got it's exact lat/lon, plotted that in my GPS to make sure I didn't swing or run over it later. I've seen a couple of these in anchorages this year ... haven't called them in, figure they are out of the way and the CG has bigger issues at hand.

I was back in Blind Bay last week, looked like that deadhead was gone.
