Fwiw, I've gone through at GC3 several times since Sandy with a draft of 5'6" at low tide with no problem at all.

Re: Rock hall?

Haven't heard anything about H. Sandy changing the shoaling in the Upper Bay. We did get a lot of rain here and some high winds but not the extended wind and wave action that might change the shoaling. I think (though I don't know) that most of the shoaling here is an ongoing process not like on the Atlantic coast where a single storm can change things dramatically.

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.

Re: Rock hall?

I draw 5'5" and always cross the harbor from the entrance to Rock Hall Landing. Pay attention to the marks - very important. The entrance to the harbor was silted in but they dredged it last July 12 and I was there September 12 for Fall Fest.

Re: Rock hall?

Used to cross the Swan Point Bar both north and south of the range light. My former boat drew 5'6". current boat draws 5'. At low tide with a 5'6" draft I've 'bumped' before but never went aground.

Suck it up and watch you depth gauge.
