MJBrown LaBatt if you're going into Sailing Emporium try to do so at mid to high tide. We were in 2 years ago with a 5' draft and just got by. Bumped a little but managed to swing away from the shoal. If you give SE a holler they'll tell you which side of the docks to favor. As far as cutting across the bar I'd only do so if you know where the deeper water sits. It lines up with the range lights but still requires local knowledge to do so safely.

Anyway, we'll be going to the Sailing Emporium. If you happen to be near the breakwall the charts show 4' depths leading up to G5 and R4. From what others have mentioned above, it sounds like we're fine - I'm just surprised that the chart is THAT inacurrate, especially when it shows surveyed depths of 6ft just past that area as of June of 2008.

MMR We're heading over to Swan this weekend if we can pry ourselves away from a neighborhood party.

You want to go into the harbor and Sailing Emporium or around the Swan Creek side?

We can check depth for you (we go straight over the bar, since we only draw 2ft ) if you like....

labatt Thanks all - there's a Precision Rendezvous at The Sailing Emporium at the end of June, and since I used to own a Precision I was thinking of going there. The charts are definitely pretty far off from the real depth.

sck5 I sail out of Swan Creek - If you are going to Rock Hall and are anchoring out you can do it there or get a transient slip in one of the marinas there as it is only a very short walk to anywhere else in R H. I went for a sail two weeks ago with a guy who fishes off of RH all the time and he said he never saw less than 6 ft. on the bar as long as you keep outside of the two beacons there. I draw only 4' 6" so it is less of an issue for me.

SVAuspicious My experience is similar. Two years ago I went in (5'8" draft) with plenty of water going around the outside of RH harbor, and left -- again with plenty of water -- in the short channel across the middle of the harbor.

I was in Swan Creek last year a couple of times and there were no issues inside the bar getting to Rock Hall. I don't have enough local knowledge to try crossing the bar directly into RH. I do skip G1 (I think) and honor G3 to get behind the bar on the way to Rock Hall or Swan Creek.
