This morning, I got to go exploring, and added some important ground to our bottom contours database. There is a spot on the Carlls River where we hit bottom last fall, for example that we now have mapped. I also got Santapogue River (Harbor Club) mapped. Shelly was not feeling well, so she slept in, and called when she was ready to be picked up. By noon, she was with me and we headed out again. We headed west and mapped the canals around Indian Island, Strongs Creek and Laguno Canal. Then headed to Woods Creek where we thought Bill Kruse and Jordan Ward had purchased waterfront property to dock their 40 footer. Wrong creek. But, We found them. They are in the un-named canal between Laguano Canal and Great Neck Creek, right by the two bridges that form a 4-way canal intersection! Geographically a VERY unique location in all of Great South Bay. Anyway, had a great visit there.
Great South Bay certainly has a lot of very interesting creeks, canals, and rivers to explore! Having the ability to do our own bathymetry mapping with our sonar makes it that much more exciting. The boat “remembers” where it has been and makes it safe to go back. And we can share these bottom contours with everyone else online. Very cool technology.
