Re: Fairlee Creek entrance with 6' 3" draft?

I just sounded the inside of Worton Creek from Green Point Landing Marina all the way back to Worton Creek marina .... at mid tide (~1+ ft above MLW) I was getting only 5.8 ft. depth just south the private green marker just after Handys Point Marina when going towards Worton Cr. Marina. (My wife is an editor of one of the famous Bay Cruising Guides ... so I regularly check out approaches, etc. These are only preliminary data soundings, as I need to average a few times to get the correct depths.) This section of Worton Cr was filled in considerably during Hurricane Floyd but is now showing deeper water again. A 6 ft draft will get you all the way to Worton creek marina at mid normal tide ... but you will bump here and there, so take it easy.

BTW - Green Point Landing only charges $1.50/ft with 30A power and $1.00/ft without power for transients. If no one is there after 4PM, just take a Tee-Head and settle up in the morning.
