Thanks Dave! I'm hoping not to have to go around Knapps Narrows all the time--we use it frequently to get to the Choptank, our closest stomping grounds. The Narrows itself and even the eastern side isn't the problem, but the west side entrance, from say Red #4 through the next 50 yards, is. I think it will be doable, but maybe not at low tide.
