Description

  We anchore on the central waters of Long Key Bight, which lies west of Channel Five's flashing daybeacon #2.
Don't think about approaching any of the bight's shore-lines. They are uniformly shoal.
Clearly, this is not an anchorage for deep-draft vessels, it's not for craft with more than 4 feet.

Minimum depth: 4 to 4 ½ feet.

On mouille dans le bassin intérieur de la baie de Long key qui est relié à Channel Five au balisage lumineux #2.
Il ne faut pas vous approcher de la rive de la Baie. Elle est bordée uniformément de hauts-fonds.
De toute évidence, ce n'est pas une zone de mouillage pour les navires à fort tirant d'eau, ce n'est pas pour les bateaux de plus de 1,2 m.
La profondeur minimum est de 1,2 à 1,5 m.
