just a short note,
On our first trip down, we rounded the lighthouse on St, Georges Reef , cleared the reef by a mile or so and turned east tword Cressent City..
About a mile or so after the turn we saw a rock come up from below on the right side of us about 50 yards off. the SOB was the size of a buss and showed itself at the bottom of a swell..
The rock on the south side and the reef on the north.. thats when your butt cheeks come up around your neck and you start gagging for air.. Slowly we rounded south for another mile or so befor we turned east again..
I had watched the charts
and all measurements and was sure I was clear of the reef..
When I got into Cressent city, I asked a couple local fisherman about the issue and they said it was "Fantom Rock" and only appears on an extreme low tide and then only at the bottom of a deep swell..
Its not marked as its only a hazzord for a few hours a month and I guess they figure it shouldnt be marked...
So My suggestion is that you take the inside channel or give the reef a good amount of distance..........
The guys fishing
asked if I thought I could find it again for them as the story is there is great fishing around that rock
By the way, thats Cressent city in the background of the lighthouse..
