I marked the lump this morning that I found last night, “blue marks” on chart. This is abreast off the sunk barge and the upper end of Osage’s empty fleet on the LDB. These marks are 10ft. of water on a 8.5 Cape gage. The furthest mark out to the sailing line is at:

37*15.203N
089*28.230W

It is far enough out towards the sailing line for large tows that want to line up on Gale light S/B to flank Gray’s Point may clip it with their port string. N/B tows that jump around Grays and make a fast run up to Cape LaCroix run right over the top of it. It runs about 200 ft. in length North to South and about 200 ft. in width from Sailing line to LDB.
