Hi Guys,

I've been checking the depth around illawong point / bay and came across two different charts that seem to disagree with each other with regards to depth.

The first chart (link below) suggests that depth at illawong bay to be around 2m near the bank and max about 40m at the middle of the river.

https://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/documents/maritime/usingwaterways/maps/boating-maps/9a-cowan-narrabeen.pdf

The second chart (below) suggests around 21+m right near the bank and further out the middle of the river the max depth reach 70.5m.

One of them has got to be wrong.

Anyone here fished illawong bay and can share your knowledge?

The second link is American. It is in FEET. I don't know where they are getting the info from. But even in feet it still is not right

The RMS chart looks accurate to me.

You can purchase actual proper navigation charts.

Thanks itsaboat! You sorted that one out easy, you're awesome! Silly me I just didn't think of it. Yeah, the yanks use feet. Thank you so much!
