Not really - big trawlers use the channel and the Coast Guard last reported ...
Yeah, I'd love to hear about your experiences if you end up getting into Chincoteague! My wife, kids and I love it there. I've dinghied around on the eastern side of the island (brought the dinghy in the car), but I've never taken a boat through there. I've seen some bigger boats anchored in Tom's Cove, but I've heard the channel in requires local knowledge.
The controling depth as 8', though some users draw 12' (they watch the tide). They do move the markers, but the Coast Guard is right there and keeps on top of it. Easy during the day, but don't do it at night without local experience, since the markers are not all lit. Safe as OC, I think.
