Channel to Houma


#1

Can I get up the channel to Houma at 13’6" draft?


#2

Anything over about 12’ as I recall will have you dredging most of the way. Been a while since I made that run though.


#3

There are a couple of 14’ spots. I know of several tugs that have gone through the canal in the last year with a draft greater than 13’6". They had to be careful with the squat, though.

Stay in clutch and you should be fine. At about cocadrie it deepens up.


#5

With no problems.


#6

Have you tried looking at the Corps of Engineers soundings for that channel?


#7

Made it just fine. Thanks all for the input.
