Re: Navigating Hart-Miller/Pleasure Island Cut

I went through the Miller's Island cut a few days ago at dead low tide. I found a few spots where the depth finder read 6 feet, which is not a problem for my 4-foot draft. Coming through at night, though, would not be my first choice. And, Hawk Cove is not a great place to anchor if the wind is NW or N. Better to go to the eastern shore and duck into Worton Creek or Fairlee Creek, both of which are well protected. Worton could be considered a good hurricane hole.

If you stick to the western shore, there's a decent anchorage near the mouth of the Gunpowder River behind Carroll Island. Fairly protected unless the wind decides to kick up from the east, which is pretty rare.

Good luck,

Gary

Re: Navigating Hart-Miller/Pleasure Island Cut

Found this link just before ducking into Hawk Cove for the night. Thanks for the thread and saving me a little time! I sailed through there many times years ago in my 26' Clipper Marine. However, I wasn't sure if my 42' OVNI would have a problem in there now. We saw a constant 2.3m (7.5'), with a low of 2.1m (6.8') just after low tide (28Sept14 Low 4:31PM 0.4ft). Plenty of room! Just be careful in the channel after dark.

Thanks. Also to Gary. Sounds like it is at least an option.

A few weeks ago they were thick as fleas on a hound-dog's back. Most are situated, however, in pretty shallow water, mainly depths of 5 to 10 feet. This time of year there's no oxygen below 15 feet in that part of the bay so the crabs migrate to shallower water.

Good Luck,

Gary

Re: Navigating Hart-Miller/Pleasure Island Cut

One of the many benefits of having a wide-beamed boat with a full keel with an attached rudder is that it's almost impossible to snag a crab pot. Notice, I said almost! One of the guys in my marina snagged one with a similar boat, the tide was dead low and slack, therefore the line was able to catch on one blade of his prop. It's the only one he has snagged in two years. I make 60 to 70 trips a year, often sailing at night and have never snagged one since purchasing the Morgan with the full keel. I snagged three in one day with the Catalina 27, all of which brought the boat to a dead stop.

Cheers,

Gary

Does anyone know how to post there?
