Doh! That's the anchorage I was talking about, got confused with Gardner's Basin. Whoops. Glad to hear some up to the minute local knowledge. They used to have the channel marked with some makeshift PVC pipe and the like. Doing so, we never had issue with our 5' draft. We tended to anchor in the east side once in in there. We had a lot of fun launching the Whaler and exploring the surrounding marshes and channels. Go one way and you could be in the Low Country somewhere, on the other, a big decayed urban blight; weird juxtaposition.
