Going fishing / boating for the first time since Hurricane Ivan. Should be interesting as my Garmin posits are now all gooned with moved wrecks, and coastlines that no longer exists...
let you know how it goes.
Red Fishing baby!!

Wow..you just threw me with something I never thought of before...do you think your insurance will also cover the cost of new charts for your boat, since the coastline/bottom has changed so much?!
It must be weird leaving your "home port" and not really recognizing the same shoreline, etc...would be very confusing for someone like me, who navigates by landmarks on shore (often) and whose shoreline changes only very slightly from year to year.

Do you a little recon for your new GPS settings while your hunting for redfish.
That sounds like a plan.

Buck, yes it is going to be wierd. Landmarks are to Sailors what Streams are to Salmon. My Garmin 188 has the charts for the Pensacola area and I have plotted several wrecks public and private that I stubbled upon or used. Additionally, all my other markers are "Pre-Ivan"
Before going out I make several assumptions:
1. The Channels WILL be different depths
Lots of folsk lost their boats in the covered marinas. Dry stacked cord wood now. I have seen Many MANY Whalers destroyed many of them Classics.
Bright side.. Lots of Trailers for sale now.
Texas.. my thoughts exactly Going to drop my Stretch 25+ down to test the depths and verify Garmin bottom contours and rebuild my wreck posits.
