Typically we use Navionics to suggest a route and follow it (not blindly, mind you). As we headed south we notice a split in the channel. Turns out the north side was called a "small craft" channel. Hey, it got us off the main channel, and the container ships therein!
It was an awesome ride. Not only were the depths nice (rarely saw anything less than 20 feet) but it was wider than the main channel, so we traveled about 1/2 a knot to a full knot faster.
We know because our buddy boat, Highwind, took the main channel. For science!
|Awesome weather, awesome water.|
Such a good day.
Clearly, despite being a Wednesday, this is a holiday.
