Shamrock, did you decide to go outside?
Hard to say where the powerboat ran aground. The channel behind Bay Head is narrow and shallow. You'd definitely be challenged to not bump bottom with 6 ft. draft
If you go outside, give barnaget inlet a wide berth..I like to stay 2 to 3 miles offshore
.. in between 40 and 60 feet of water
. Do not try to cut the corner around Sandy Hook..follow the shipping
channel in from the outer marks, you can stay north of the channel, but I'd be wary of cutting in from the south toward the false hook channel. You can probably set waypoint for fl red 6 or 4 but I wouldn't cut the corner any closer.
