St. Petersburg to Bradenton beach ICW
 
Hey I'm planning on going from Tampa Bay to Bradenton beach. I'll be staying on the magenta line from the sunshine skyway center span south to Bradenton beach. I draw about 5'. It looks thin on the charts. Does anyone have any local knowledge or warnings for me?

Ian--

With a Ranger 22 you have nothing to worry about but the power boats. Take a good pair of binoculars so you can pick out the marks and watch your ranges. If you do run aground, which you shouldn't, you can get out and push, if necessary, but you should do fine.

FWIW...
