With the negative tides this summer things should get real busy for TowboatU.S.

Here is the latest official word:

WASHINGTON – STRAIT OF JUAN DE FUCA TO STRAIT OF GEORGIA – SWINOMISH CHANNEL SOUTH ENTRANCE – Shoaling (Revised from LNM 14/22) Significant shoaling exists in Swinomish Channel, especially the South Entrance between South Entrance Buoy 5 (LLNR 18802) and South Entrance Daybeacon 12 (LLNR 18812). The project depth of Swinomish Channel is 12 feet, however, the controlling depth of Swinomish Channel is 4.1 feet based upon the latest available hydrographic data. This controlling depth of 4.1 feet is reflected on NOAA ENC products. Raster products do not reflect this sounding information, as they are no longer being updated with most routine corrections. Mariners should consult ENC cells for the most up-to-date information. Mariners should transit the Swinomish Channel waterway with caution, especially at low tidal conditions.
