   West of marker 13 on Gordon Pass inlet begins a channel that leads to a series of canals lined by sumptuous homes. Minimum depths are 6 feet.
  The channel can be reached from the Inland Waterway by heading west at marker 73 or from the Gulf through Gordon Pass.
  As you round the point of land that lies east of the channel entrance, a bay-like area to the north offers 2 tempting anchorage, but it is a cable area, so pass it by.
  Instead, continue to follow the shore to starboard, heading cast into the first offshoot north of the entrance Here depths are 9 feet, until the stream tarns north and opens out into a wide bay with 7-9 foot depths.
  A small ocean freighter could anchor easily here, and protection from all winds is superb.
