Coming through Ponce De Leon inlet
Depending on the weather We plan to move our CR38 (5 foot draft) from Brunswick to Daytona in November.
The plan is to go outside and come in at Ponce De Leon inlet at New Smyrna Beach.
A few questions comes to mind.
Is this the best inlet to use? If anything better, please tell me which inlet, and why you would not use Ponce.
Please share some insights about navigating the inlet - should I plan for high tide?
Any recent knowledge/experience using the inlet after Mathew?
Looking at the charts, after entry one can go immediately north, go west or go south.
The west channel looks too shallow and the north seems strangely void of markers.
The plan is to go south first and then turn and follow the main channel back north.
This plan right now is only based on not seeing channel markers in the North channel - Any thoughts here.
