For sure. Which is why it would be important to head at 140, which takes you southeast and away from the wider and shallower north end. Just looking at the chart, heading due east from Rockhold #1 would definitely not work.

Doing this could really cut down on our motoring time when daysailing! I plan to try it at low tide too--we draw 5 ft BTW.
And remember that the further north you get, it can get very thin way out. You still need to give the north shore at least 1/2-mile almost all the way.

That cut takes you across the bar in the same general area, and might be easier than looking for the Herring Bay bouy in the haze.

Ok. I did this on this mornings high, outgoing tide. I did the straight out from Rockhold creek No. 1 towards the green spider. Never saw less than 7.5 feet.

On my charts, if you follow a course connecting the Rock Hold Creek 1 to the Herrington Bay 1, you will be fine. It crosses just south of the 5 and 4 ft marks on the marine chart.

I went across the bar a couple times in May just to try. You just have to be careful where you pick to cross and watch the depth gauge.

HHS had some great fireworks last night. We caught the bus from HHN and made it just in time for the show.

Happy 4th of July everyone!

I've never watched the fireworks from there, but I do know Herrington Harbor South will have their firework show on July3rd. I believe they will shoot them off the sea wall.

Does anyone know if you can see fireworks shows from the water near Herring Bay for the 4th? I've never done 4th on the water?
