Key Largo to Bimini to Berry Islands

EDIT - I'm an idiot, my charts were in meters, don't want to waste anyone's time with this post :-P

Hello all, I'm planning a Bimini trip in September, and I was thinking about extending it to the Berrys.

I have done some reading online, and have seen several people saying things similar to this:

cross and get on the Great Bahama Bank at North Rock, then on to NW Channel light and then on to the Berrys.
... and several similar statements.

I am reading this as saying that there is a way to cross the Great Bahamas Bank with my boat (3'9" draft), but the charts I have don't seem to support this. If I went by my charts alone they would seem to indicate that I have to go AROUND the GBB on the North side.

Am I missing something? Cutting some miles on this leg would be great, if the way exists...
