Good Luck,

Sure, I have no doubt that particular area as charted bears little resemblance to reality...

However, I doubt that waterway - with a project depth of 4 feet or so, and probably considerably less in spots, and the 35' clearance of the fixed bridges over Chincoteague Bay - is included in what most people think of when they hear "Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway"... (grin)
