The "right" side coming or going? Summer silly season is coming to an end soon. Hopefully the deck boat operators will have it figured out soon for you. (Humorous context intended)

The right side of the channel applies whether you are coming or going. (Humorous context also).

My channel out has marinas to my starboard on the way out. A lot of boats crawl in and out all over the place. I hug the port markers all the way out on plane to minimize wake to mani as even though it's minimal.
