        Anchored on Cane Patch Creek April 10, 2009 just north of a small patch of higher ground which effectively gave protection from south wind 10-15 mph. Anchored in 20 ft at low tide – had 100 ft of road out. Lots of swing room.

        At the Cane Patch Creek off the Buckehead River at 1 hour before Low, we found the center line depths to be at least 4 feet less than charted (still 12 feet, though). Starting with the charted 35 foot
        spot at the first “jog” depths ran truer to the chart.
        We anchored 2 hours before being blasted by a blue-green squalll with 52 knot winds from the west with the average wind in the high 30s for about 20 mins. We didn’t budge. (All chain, 50# Delta, 11+ ton sailboat.). We’d call this a hurricane hole — at least for winds. It’s too close to the coast and would be a storm surge sluice.
