The return through the pass should have been easy . Low water but foççow the marked trck on the chart and sonar on . Vver confidence and letting Penny take photo´s of the instruments to prove how shallow it was and we managed to scrape an area of coral . Probably 10m off track . No damage and quickly floated off. Not so lucky was an American yacht whose rudder fell off 50nm west of here . He is slowly making his way back .
