Re: Crossing the sandbar at Harrington Harbor North, Deale

All the time, for 20 years. I draw 3.5 feet.

As for those who state that it is 6-feet, perhaps some places and some times, but I promise you there are 4-foot spots at extreme low tide. It just depends on exactly where you cross and how many times you cross. I've never hit, but I've seen some low numbers many times and I know my sounder to be acurate within inches (we often anchor and swim in shallow areas). Pay attention. The chart is not wrong.

Most of the time, most places, about 6 feet.

Writing full-time since 2014
