The lagoon dries at low tide as does the area to the west.

There is an 18 foot tidal range in the area. What did your deep sounder say? I allows use a lead line off the stern in this area.

I dropped the anchor in 65 ft and 240 ft of chain....the wind that nite gusted from the NW putting us into the area toward the lagoon S of its entry. I think the sand shoal in front of the lagoon mouth extends much further than Navionics or my chart indicates.

Oh well...after a few fresh cod tacos and a bottle of red wine my wife has forgiven me.

If you do clip something hard in the area , you can go alongside the Gov't dock there to check (unless you drive a finkeel). I've dried out there for annual bottom paint when weather suits.
