I went through Poplar Narrows on Friday Jul 19th at mid-tide. I have a CSY 44 that draws 6'6". The depth transducer is mounted apx 4 feet above the keel bottom. I was showing 5 ' in places which gave me about 1' of clearance.
I was thinking of going through Knapps narrows westbound from the Choptank, I called one of the marinas on the narrows. When I told her what I draw, she recommended I not try it. My last time through was sometime in 2012. I went aground between green 5 and red 6. It took a good 45 minutes to cover the distance to red 6 where I had deep water.

I made it through Poplar Island narrows with no problem. I'm not sure about Knapps. On the eastern side, the only red is at the entrance. There are 2 greens on the approach. Past experience is that I could not hug the greens as it shoaled considerably on the green side; probably from n/ne winds. Moving further out helped some but there are lumps on which I got hung up. For the extra hour or so, it's easier to go around the southern tip of Tilghman Island.
Fair winds,
