A submerged dock lays off the Fort McHenry National Monument, in the Patapsco River, Baltimore MD—and a well-known marked hazard zone. The depth surrounding the object is navigable at depths greater than 30 feet. Just over the hazard, depths are only 5-8 feet, making it impossible for a traditional survey vessel to navigate.
