Re: Rock hall?

Our draft is 4' 4", when we head over to Rockhall/Swan Creek from Rock Creek off the Patapsco, I usually line up the range lights for the Brewerton Channel then just before the light tower I take a heading of about 100 so we pass North of the range light. Don't go just South of that range light however, trust me on that one (This is what I do, not suggesting anyone else do the same, not my fault if you run aground )

The only time I recall ever touching bottom crossing the bar was during a low tide with a good breeze blowing the bay South in which I should have had the sense to go around and once coming into Swan Creek during late fall and caught the bottom off Gratitude Marina.
