The last red mark, as you are coming into the canal for MacRay and it's gas dock seems to have a mind of it's own. It seems to be closer to the green maker across from it making the channel kinda narrow. When we headed out Sunday it looked to be further out. When we came in and met Fast Eddie heading out we went around that marker (put it on my port side).

Is it me, or is that marker out of place?

It's buoy #6.

Twice when we came in it was in the middle of the MacRay entrance instead of lined up on the side with the other red markers.

Then when we went out it was back lined up. I don't know if it is the wind and waves that move it or if somone moves it and puts it back where it belongs and then it moves on its own again.


It was easier to go on the wrong side of the marker since we knew the water was deep enough instead of going on the correct side of the buoy and head towards an outcoming boat head on.

It's been doing it every week so far this year. I think they have too short of chain and the bouy is lifting the anchor when wakes are lifting it. They are still using last years chain when the water was lower. Just my thought...

Was just through there sat also and still am annoyed they don't dredge the channel and line it up with the end of the sea wall like it USED to be. Its so damn narrow coming in there. I can't imagine two 50+ footers having to pass each other between the bouys.

LOL I was more interested in seeing if I was the only one who thought it was out of place.

Yes it is very tight there.
I think it's there because the channel filled in is shallow to the righ of it coming in.
I think thats what Brian said.

When I met you at that point yesterday and went around the "wrong" side of the buoy I had at least 3 feet under me. It just seems like it's moving back and forth a good distance.

That's the only thing I see on the calendar. I don't know if they expect that many people for it but it could be something else.
