We transited Knapps Narrows on 7/1 about mid tide and had no problem. We hugged the R4 on the Bay side and found at least 6.0' of water. The River side had some areas in the upper 5' range. Since we draw 5' we were nervous but we never bumped. We managed to transit the River side 2 more times as we went back to Knapps Narrows to stay at the marina for 2 days to avoid the sweltering heat and went through ok.
