Ive been thru that area about 50 plus times (maybe more) I draw five feet and never had a problem but I read the water and avoid the heads. I use a Garmin chart plotter and it’s been excellent.

Back in the 1950s I took a guide (Pinder) who before going thru prayed on the aft deck for five minutes. I admit I was frightened but watching him take the boat I never used a pilot again, it’s a scam if you can read the water. Saying that next time I’ll damage a prop.
