My boat draws 6′, any difficulty getting to this area following the channel from the Clearwater memorial bridge. I noticed there is an obstruction between marker 8 and 10.
We have been through there 6 or so times now. We draw 4′ and never have had a problem. The obstruction does not appear to be the issue. For what it’s worth, we have not noticed any fluctuations on the depth sounder when traveling over its charted position. The shoaling near R12 is a big problem, though. We were in the 5′-6′ range for depth. Better water is supposed to be on the inside of the No Wake Markers closer to shore. We were @ 30 ft just to the outside of the markers. The tide was @ +1′ MLW.
