Nice sig, particularly the 4'10" draft part

I guess what bugs me about QT is never have I not been able to get into a creek I wanted to! Still Pond Creek, done it many times, sure I bumped bottom here and there but I got in without to much pain.

You didn't stay very long..like in and out. Saw you around 10am on Sat. as we sailed up to the red #14 QT entrance bouy. Spent about an hour and half taking depth soundings from the dingy after anchoring..seems the last green can may have moved abit to the left... Watched several power boated run aground when they followed to closely to the green cans. Also watched (2) power boaters cut between the "Danger Shoal" sign and the first green can..and than take it way wide to the right of the second green can..now that was interesting!

Only one other sailboat inside along with (3) rafted up groups of power boats... All-in-all a very nice night with a full moon and music from a wedding on shore.

The cause of the problem was it trapped the sewage overflow problem on the Corsica River upstream. Don't know if they got that fixed yet - it was big news then!
Some pointers would be nice
