Description

The lake is a long, narrow, and shallow body of water separated from the ocean by an island varying in width from 0.1 to 0.5 mile. Considerable dredging has been done in Lake Worth for private channels and for real estate development. Local knowledge is necessary to carry the best water outside the limits of the marked channels.

There are many excellent and complete marinas and repair yards for yachts along the shores of Lake Worth.

Little Lake Worth, at the north end of Lake Worth, has a basin which in 1969, has depths of 12 to 14 feet. State Route A1A highway bridge across the entrance has a 27-foot fixed span with a clearance of 8 feet.
A privately marked and dredged channel leads northward to Little Lake Worth from the Intracoastal Waterway at Mile 1014.2.
The reported controlling depth is 7 feet.

Le lac est long, étroit et peu profond. Il est séparé de l'océan par une île dont la largeur varie de 0,1 à 0,5 mile. Un dragage considérable a été fait à Lake Worth  au niveau des chenaux privés et pour le développement immobilier. Pour naviguer en dehors des limites des chenaux balisés il faut connaître le coin.

De nombreuses excellentes marinas ainsi que des chantiers de réparation de yachts se trouvent le long des rives du lac Worth.

Little Lake Worth, à l'extrémité nord du lac de Wörth, a un bassin qui a des profondeurs de 3,6 à 4,2 m. L'entrée du lac est traversée par le pont de l'autoroute A1A avec 8,1 m fixes et une partie mobile de 2,4 m.
Un chenal privé dragué et balisé se trouve au N de Little Lake Worth, au point 1014.2 de l'intracoastal Waterway.
La profondeur de contrôle est signalée 2,1 m.
