Just hug the red coming in from the Bay. I posted a very accurate bottom survey a month back that will tell you exactly. Go to the following and download the PDF. Then zoom waaaay in.

Re: Knapps Narrows depth?

We just went through westbound last weekend (9/14) in a Beneteau 361 (5' draft) about 2 hours after high tide. Minimum water we saw was about 1/2 ft below the keel. Pretty much ran the line between marks coming in from the Choptank and then hugged the southern shoreline (west side of bridge) as we were exiting to avoid the marked shoaling area just across from Tilghman Island Marina. We then ran the line of channel marks to avoid the shallows immediately north of the channel leading to the Bay.
