Motoring, no wind, against the tide, glassy smooth water until wind picked up and tide in my favor after Marcus Hook.
Used a line between the overheaad power line 1st pylon off DE and western-most tank/standpipe at Newcastle for 1st range, to line up with the Newcastle range light, then green 5D on the Deepwater Point Range.
Water shoals rapidly on DE side, more gently on the dike side, but I may have been over the shoal between the two fingers of deeper water at the Newcastle range.
The dike at low tide looks menacing, so I would keep well clear even at high tide.
