Unfortunately not, Donna. A late week flurry of work interfered with our plans. I suspect that we will transit it at some point this summer and I'll be sure to post the results on this thread.

On a related topic we have recently transited:
Knapps Narrows
Plenty of water for our 5' draft. The only "thin" area was in the channel about 30' off the Red #4 on the west side. Close but no bumps.

A nice restaurant on the south side of the bay bridge on Kent Island. We headed straight in to the outer channel marker at low tide. We didn't bump but there was <6' in a few places. We took a WAG at the route so there may be a deeper way in. The channel was 6+ into the harbor. Great docks.

And one more:
Tangier Island
Went softly aground coming down the middle of the eastern channel. Barely made it in by hugging the greens. Exiting the island using the western channel provided plenty of water.
