'not at all a stupid question. There are about 7 or 8 well known places between the Chesapeake and Florida
where this draft can be at or near aground and a couple more brief points in Florida
. Most of the spots are in South Carolina an Georgia
. Two strategies will get you through these questionable places. Travel at these points on a rising, but not maximum tide and get feedbackreports from those you have overtaken you and those that you meet. Ask them about the depths they encountered and if they found a side to favor. It's also important to note that those that report a four foot spot usually had a far deeper option to their port or starboard.
