Slow down, stay in the channels, plan your arrivals in unfamiliar waters for high sun angles so you can clearly see the markers (notwithstanding where the little boat is on your plotter!), keep on top of your navigational skills at all times, don't drink while under way - not much else can be said in general, but those points should keep you off the rocks anyway.....  :)

Why water low in that area ?   What size boat you using Nikdee?   Where you boating out of?  How long you beenboating on Georgian?
Whats your favorite spot and why?    I will definitely be going to Beusoleil island..it sounds very popular?

Is there a good link showing me these spots or do I have to wait to buy a chart?

I bought chartplotter but I dont pick it up till April.


Thanks for the tip


Tim
