It's something local boaters have
been waiting for with great impatience?and
Maintenance dredging of
I x>ckwood's Folly Inlet began Tuesday
and will continue an estimated
two months at a cost of about
J180.000, according to the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers Wilmington
When dredging is completed, the
channel will follow a slightly altered
alignment, said Robert Sattin, chief
of the Corps' plant section.
"The ocean channel will be
straighter than it was previously. It
had curved to the west. It will still
have a little bit of curve to the west."
The Corps lias proceeded with caution,
taking care not to disturb three
Civil War shipwrecks in the inlet,
said Richard Kimmel, who was in
charge of the archeological survey.
In its more eastern alignment,
Kimmel said the new channel will lie
between the wrecks of the "Iron
Age" and the "Elizabeth."
In 1982, the channel was dredged
between the wrecks of the "Iron
Age ana a inira vessel, me uendigo."
The "Currituck," constructed
specifically to dredge shallow draft
channels such as I,ockwood's Folly
and Carolina Beach inlets, will
deepen the channel connecting the
Intracoastal Waterway to the Atlantic
Ocean to an approved depth of

Dredging will be concentrated on
the area from Bouy 10 outward, said
Sattin. "Up to Bouy 10 there seem3 to
be plenty of water," he said.
Sattin said the Wilmington District
takes a different approach from
some districts in its dredging operations?a
difference evident in plans
for Ix>ckwood Folly Inlet.
"We try to work with Mother
Nature, to put the channel where the
deepest water is," he said, following
its natural alignment rather than forcing
a channel across the shortest
distance between two points.
"When you do that," he explained,
"you end up closing up what you have
"This way you get a deeper channet
aiiCi it stays open longer. We seem
to be aoing a little better this way."
Kimmel said the "Currituck" will
avoid the wreck of the "Elizabeth,"
staying 150 to 200 feet from its center.
A steam-powered wooden-hull
vessel, the blockade runner
"?)!izsbcth" wss 2 converted (]olf
coast steamer once called the
"Atlantic." It was stranded and
burned at 1-ockwood's Folly Inlet
Sept. 24, 1863, according to David
Stick's "Graveyard of the Atlantic,"
supposedly through the activities of a
Federal spy who was later found to
have been on board.
The "Iron Age" was the only
Federal vessel recorded as lost in the
Union's blockading activities. The

All three wrecks showed up in elec
