the distance from the top or surface
to the bottom of something.

Looking west from Point Nepean to Point Lonsdale Lighthouse.

During my school days, I am sure we were told that

the entrance to Port Phillip Bay, known as The Rip,

was only 6 fathoms (36 feet) deep.



Point Nepean from Point Lonsdale Lighthouse.

Google states that Port Phillip Bay’s deepest portion

is only 24 metres (79 ft) and that half of

the bay is shallower than 8 m (26 ft).
