Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture
Zanshin: I always like to be self-reliant and use the GPS to find the outer "chanel" marker for Setting Point on Anegada. After that you can use the inner markers for a guide, but you really want to read the water visually. You obviously know why!
My recollection is that you can stay in at least 7' if you are careful. We've been in boats that draw 5-6' and it isn't comfortable when you don't trust the accuracy of the bareboat depth sensor. We save our incoming track and refer to it on the way out.
I've considered that it might be easier to anchor off Pomato Point and dinghy it. That looks like what you are considering.
