That area is a little deceiving. Just north of the Casino building is a dive area that is roped off. The designated anchorage area is just further out from that dive park. The depth in that area...

I actually haven't bought any of the wire yet so I'm good there. After crunching numbers this afternoon I scaled back my large stuff to 2/0. I think I went overboard and wasnt realistic with it.
