Rock Hall shoaling

Looks like 4ish feet MLLW getting into Rock Hall this year. Read the comments. Anyone done any local sounding yet?

Dave,

Two weeks ago the low tide was lower than normal and I ran agound in between the red and green at the end of the jetty. I draw 5.5 ft. My usal approach based on the chart is to follow green day marker #1 to red 4.

Coming out of the harbor I made sure it was high tide and followed a local. The right way to enter the harbor is to align the two reds #4 and #6 about 100 yards south of #4 and proceed slowly. Or wait for a local like I have done several times in the past.

From the article it sounds like the deepest spot is out of the marked channel.

RH Channel Markers to be moved

here's an update from the Rock Hall Wave Rock Hall Wave - All the News We have Time for in Rock Hall, Maryland

"In a phone call and email to Rock Hall Wave, Kent County Commissioner and Rock Hall Town Manager, Ronnie Fithian, forwarded the good news that the United States Coast Guard has approved Rock Hall’s request to move the channel market buoys at the entrance to our harbor. In doing this, boaters, sports fishermen and commercial watermen will find the entrance more navigable. Ronnie said, “I really want to thank Congressman Andy Harris and Delegate Dick Sossi for the help and support on getting us to the right people and to the help we need.”

Town Manager Fithian is waiting to hear back on the date of execution. "

Not sure what the depth in the remarked channel will be but I expect more info will be forthcoming.

Thanks Mary Lou.

Here is the direct link USCG Approves and Plans To Move Buoys At Entrance of Rock Hall Harbor

I look forward to learning the new MLLW numbers.

As a regular on the 'USCG Notices to Mariners' I see no mention of shoaling nor any mention of moving navigational aids in Rock Hall Harbor.. only this..

Mariners are advised that the swim portion of the “Rock Hall Triathlon” is scheduled to occur in Rock Hall Harbor on June 25,
2011 and June 26, 2011, from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Saturday and from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Sunday. Approximately 400
swimmers will compete on marked courses, counter-clockwise along a 1500-meter course on Saturday and a 750-meter course
on Sunday, at Rock Hall Landing Marina (Dock A) near Waterman’s Crab House. Bright yellow triangular turn buoys will mark
the northwest and southeast ends of the swim course. Swimmers will be supported by sponsor-provided kayaks and lifeguard
surfboards. Official patrol personnel on scene can be contacted on marine band radio channel 16 VHF-FM. For any comments
or questions, contact Coast Guard Sector Baltimore, Waterways Management Division, at (410) 576-2674 or
Ronald.L.Houck@uscg.mil. Chart 12272.

There won't be an LNM for the marks until they are moved.

I'm not sure why the shoaling hasn't been reported as it is substantial.

We know it has been reported since the CG has approved although not yet implemented a channel marker move.
