I "heard" it on the internet too. It would be a shame to have missed the stop in Tangier and we almost skipped. The North entrance from the bay side got to 6.5' at just one point. Best Mode draws 5' and we came in and went out at about mid tide. In fact, 21 knots and 3' seas on our careful departure. We traced the GPS line right back out on our original path. I don't know about the East Side entrance, we just came in from West side and followed the markers coming in from the North pf the island. We stayed two nights as the winds howled and I wasn't keen on bouncing the bottom.
PS: No pump outs, BYOB and keep your trash onboard. Milton Parks at Parks Marina greeted us with open arms. Stay there, it's a treasure and only $30 for a 40' boat.
