Is it worthwhile to go through Kent narrows to get there (shorter distance), or too tricky due to shoaling? Maybe I could go one way (it will be fun to sail under the Bay Bridge) and come back the other? Also, I've heard the marinas in St Michael's are expensive, any nearby marinas/anchorages that you advise? I had posted in another Kent Narrows thread..this was the latest news concerning dredging..nothing has followed since..

Keep an eye out for the latest Local Notices to Mariners..
