Good stuff!

it looks calm for an entry to the Deben, my pulse always quickens after taking the turn past Woodbridge haven buoy on approach on the Ebb in a breeze

Many worry about the Deben bar and entrance but if you follow the Buoys it is fine. I suppose it being my home waters makes it somewhat easier. If you look on line you will fine some drone footage of it at low water which helps

Yes I agree, this area of permanent shifting sands needs serious research if you haven’t attempted it before ignor it to your peril literally many have perished over the years its responsible for hundreds of wreaks and groundings the more you draw the higher the stress, we slammed the bottom in a very confused sea between mid knoll and the spit
