  Northeast of marker 15 on the Manatee River, a patch of 6 foot deep water extends east and south of Hooker Point.
  A charted marsh runs out from the point, but offers little protection; waters thin rapidly toward shore behind the land mass of the point. Don't get too close to shore.
  Set course for the first of several private homes fronting onto the western shores north of the point. As the main body of Hooker Point comes abeam, drop the anchor Further north lie 4 foot depths.
  The anchorage offers excellent protection from north and northwesterly breezes, but no protection front southerly blows.
