Bottom Conditions: I found the bottom to be good holding mud, with some medium vegetation. My 25lbs Mantus anchor held fast, but came up with some effort covered in mud and a lot of water hyacinth.
Hazards: Most of the middle of the sunken island seemed clear of hazards, but the perimeter is rich with submerged tree stumps which represent potentially dangerous and hidden danger to vessels. Some of these are charted, but one should keep a careful eye out within 20 feet of the perimeter, in addition to the usual visual awareness.
