So I presume that there are not many coral heads that you have to worriey about but just plain shallow. As you mentioned doing that run at night. The area you went I hope you have done it before in the daylight or did you not worriey about the coral heads.

Re: Route planning for Key West - Andros - Exumas

Well, we didn't see any coral heads because it was DARK

On our route, it was the kind of shallow that you associate with that nice sandy bottom - all very gradual depth changes, nothing seemed to be poking out at us. There are some little "plus signs" on the chart, that I think signify rocks - most "always underwater/submerged"....

On the dawn picture I attached in a previous post, you can see some little cays - one of these is at 23*34.53'N, 77*20.34'W, if you want a reference point. No coral heads there, anyway!
