Navionics autoroutes me from Freeport back to West End and around the North and I want to make sure Iím not missing something. Looks shorter to cut through the waterway and run north to the channel but perhaps thereís backtracking required that Iím not seeing.
I ran through the waterway last summer, but like you say autoroute has you going around for some reason. There was no problems cutting through just follow the markers exiting to the N side. Unfortunately the crossing was a better ride than running around on the bank for my trip. It blew a solid SE-25. It was one long wet ride to Treasure. Lol
