Taking the owner's position may not be popular, but if he draws 6' and he know it, and the chart shows 10', and he knows that, and then you add possibly 8' of tide, (we don't know what the tide was doing, but assume the owner knew at the time) giving you 18' of water depth for a 6' draft... there are some channels shallower than that. Asking about observing the buoy was the right thing to do, but the skipper seems to have already worked out the equation.
