I have a friend with a Hans Christian who loves Sore Thumb, and he reported scraping badly at high tide thru the inlet, but he does have a 6' draft. I think you would be safe at high tide in the channel.

The best thing to do is ask the commercial fishing boats that go out of Captree and you might get some good info from the Coast Guard station at Fire Island. They monitor Ch 16.
