swampcreek is on a distinguished road
Although I've been through them many many times I would NEVER suggest anyone to do it. I started this back in the 1970's as a kid on a 15' trihull and have took every boat I own through there since. As a matter of fact I even "fudged" my lowest depth reading of 6'through them (it was deeper) to be on the safe side figuring someone with a deep draft boat might try it after reading my post.

OH! we have pictures, the camera is not here right now! I'll post them shortly.

I'm going to grab some breakfast and go sailing today, I'll probably motor a little closer than usual to the MYC to "plant the seed" with the Admiral.
