        Cruising News:
        2/Nov/11 Arriving at high tide in our 42ft sailboat, draft 5’6″, and taking note of previous information on shoaling, we turned into the Creek taking a centre line between the banks and proceeded down the centre of the creek approx 3/4 of a mile until waters started to shallow quickly to 7ft but up to that time we did not see less than 13ft on the depth sounder.
        We retraced our track and set anchor about a 1/2 mile above the entrance where we recorded 7ft at low water that night.
        3/Nov/11 Departing this morning at 1 hour before low tide we followed the south bank out – we registered good depths between 11-20ft. The creek is narrow and is best in a NE but where we anchored was adequate swinging room for us even at 42ft long. Excellent holding in good, thick mud.

        At the entrance to Cattle Pen Creek, the shoal to the north seems have made out toward the channel. The USACE line on C-Map ran us through 7.7 foot (4.4 MLLW) water at half tide falling. A turn to port (northbound) found deeper water.
