Did not quite get this Osprey as well as I should have. Came across this which had signs all over no tresspasing  and no entering in the creek.

This is part of the naval base just outside Beaufort. Below is the ocean at St. Helena Sound.  Looks pretty calm.

We entered Ashepoo Coosaw Cutoff reading 7.5 feet under the boat at high tide. We entered Ashepoo River and got a little swamped by these boats while they passed.

Anchored down river from this gentleman and we anchored in 13 feet of water.  We have a crab pod behind the boat but we are far enough away.

As you can see the tide is going down.

And this is the cage for the crab pods you can see the cage and the ball are high and dry but when the water comes up the pod is 8 to 9 feet under water and the ball is floating on top.  You don’t want that around your props.

  1. Another peaceful Anchorage by the looks of it. Beautiful sunset!
    How often have you used the second anchor? I’m debating whether to mount it like yours or just carry it stored.
