FWIW, NOAA's chart has your point of impact shaded in blue (shallow water) instead of the white that your plotter shows. I think the blue color better highlights the true danger. This is another reason why I prefer using my computer-based plotter that can use whatever raster or vector charts you choose. NOAA charts in coastal US, NGA charts in BVI, etc.:
