The “hazardous rock outcropping,” reported below in this article cherry picked from the latest Local Notice to Mariners, seems to lie along the Dania Cutoff Canal between Harbour Town Marina and Royal Palm Yacht Basin. So, clearly this is a hazard that both resident and visiting mariners must carefully take into account. Our best advice is the same as given below by the USCG. Stick strictly to the canal’s centerline, and proceed with CAUTION!
