sawingknots is on a distinguished road
when i brought my boat up the tombigbee during a spring flood i had to hug the inside of the bends until i just started around the curve then i had to switch over quickly to the other side of the river,all to just manage 1 knot,in the main current i was at a standstill,tidal creeks are somewhat similar,but a little more complicated due to the change in direction of the current,the deepest water will always be in the main current and the highest banks will always be the current side
