Re: Rock hall?

I've always gone across the bar at the two yellow range marks. Never had less than 5 feet under my keel (7 feet actual). I stay within 30 feet of a straight line to the south side of the towers. My chart shows that as being a maintenance channel with 6-7 feet.

Keep in mind the Gemini draws 22 inches with the motor down.
I've been followed across by a Sabre 34 and a Catalina 27 - both drawing 4.5 feet.

The only drama I've had was when my motor quit half way over one day. How fast can you replace a fuel pump?
