There is shoaling to 2 MLW in the channel, follow directions for 9.2 MLW. Note the new buoy positions. The US Army Corps of Engineers survey (shown below) was completed 9/23/2018 but since then buoy R60 has been added opposite G61A to help guide you through the inlet. There was very little change after Hurricane Florence.You can download a GPX route at BBrown092318 The "W" path has become so exaggerated that's it's hard to describe, download the GPX file if you can and study the chartlet from the USACE.

- Once past G61A, pass G63 by 100 ft off.
