I've read as much as I can.
am hoping going in the off-season will help.
plan on VHF-ing the hell out of it up to the start.
but anything else?
Yes- don't hit the rocks!
Seriously, hundreds of boats go through there each year and very few have a problem.
Calling on the VHF
for concerned traffic (tugs and barges) is a good idea. Staying in the middle and not pulling over for someone to pass is another.
I went through there several times at higher tides and never saw the rocks. Go through at low tide and you can see and avoid them.
