Thanks for the advice. I'm still thinking that it looks like an intentional navigation cut in the ledge from the old days and that it may be runnable.
It looked like Musky water on Google Earth, so on one of the rods I put on heavy salt-water braid that I use for bluefish. Musky teeth and bluefish teeth are about the same for cutting line (I guess, I've never caught a Musky).
I know with a little effort I could line the boat on the Maryland side. The West Virginia side is cliff, so I wouldn't be able to line it there. It might be easier to find a launch above the ledge and come down. I did find what appeared to be a rarely used launch when biking and exploring one time and marked it on my GPS. I ought to download it and see where it lays. Unfortunately, I forgot to mark the ledge! (Big bonehead)
I've got a buddy who has been bit by the musky bug, who has a bit of an adventurous spirit, and may enjoy an exploratory trip to see whether we can make it. I'm surely not going to try it without some ballast keeping the bow down.
There's always Antietam if I don't mind the carry (and I don't).
