Re: Kent narrows vs. around Kent Island

We travel through the narrows frequently and draw 4'6" no sweat. As far as the current, nothing that woudl make me go around...never had any trouble with it even waiting foir the bridge,. If it is behind you I usually find my place in line and turn around facing it feathering the enginge until the bridge opens...usually confounds the powerboaters.

If you are looking for peace and quiet anchorage hand a left at the Wye River on the way to St Mikes. Shaw Bay and Dividfing Creek are a few of the good spots,

Santa Domingo as mentioned on the other side of St Micheals, but will takew some time to get there. join the museum and stay for nothing.
