While this might be fine for smaller power boats, it's absolutely unacceptable otherwise. I am probably going to take the plunge and move over to the western shore.

I keep hearing about the markers being moved as well, etc., but I am not holding my breath.
Thanks Calax for the update. Anyway to sound the outside the green side of the channelat various time of the tidal change? I remember several years there where temp. green markers placed before they dredged. Also Joe Palmeranz, general manager of Piney Narrows, is also a good source for local knowledge as he usually posts temp(unofficial charts) of the affected area at the marina.

Thanks again,
