I hit a rock on the east side of Boat Passage (Winter Cove). I had not noticed the the current was pushing us as much as it was. The depth sounder read 4.9 feet. We hit, bounced up and then came down on the rock. We were lucky. There was some hull delamination. That was a valuable lesson. When Sailing Directions indicates that local knowledge is required, believe it.
