This weeks Local Notice to mariners said that there is shoaling across the channel between LE and #2 to a depth of 5 FT at mean HIGH tide. Normally they give the depths at Low or Lower low tide so the Waterways section of the Coast Guard was contacted to see if this was a typo. They stated that they verified that the depth reported is at high tide. There is a meeting scheduled with the CG and the Army Corp of Engineers to discuss LEI.
Also, last weeks Notice to Mariners reported that #2 in LEI was missing and several of the buoys in Barnegat inlet are either missing or off station.
