I don't but stay away from the lagoon...seems it has added about 9' of sand just outside. Everywhere else here I think the charts are OK.

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.

Eder -- Just curious which charts you were using with Navionics -- NOAA charts, Navionics charts, or the sonar charts?
