  North of marker 24, boaters can carry 7 feet of water to within 50 yards of the southwest shore of Chino Island.
  The anchorage is well protected from north and northeasterly winds, but wide open to breezes from all other directions and to wakes from passing boats on the ICW.
  The shore is shrouded with lush vegetation, but the island is private, so it is not possible to go ashore.
