Tony B if you leave Wheeler lock beware
When we came threw the lock we followed the red an green then headed about 270 degrees. Right around the 272 there was what appeared to be a large rock but had to be a log. I was just getting up on plane an caught it That was close. You can never take your eyes off the water. I shouldn't be texting and piloting

I can't say enough about using my iPad and Garmin's bluechart software for about $50. I spent thousands on my plotters an radar but when the green an red didn't show or things didn't look right I turn to my iPad. I bought it in 2012 and used it to come to Knoxville from Va around Florida. I've spent hundreds for more detailed charts but it's all in the bluechart app for $50.
