I believe it can be a HUGE fine if you get caught running through the seagrass there and causing damage. Seagrass is protected and it will cost a lot more than fixing your props.....

Default fixx

keep a eye on the "high tide and low tide reports" obviously the high tide will make it easier making the trip..
