Solomon(+) offers a plan:

+ The distance from the work area to the point on the latter bayou is several miles by water fewer than land. It occurs to me that the expense of transportation would be materially diminished if we use the waterway.
- It's a scheme. Plenty of engineers have schemed similarly. The passes are too tight.
+ I reckon'em at more than 12 feet at their most narrow.

What does "scheme" mean in this context? Plan? I think he's using it like "theoretical", do you agree?

Thanks for your help.
