Re: Hit a rock today

Yes, welcome to the club. I guess the lesson is that charts cannot really be relied upon to reveal all the rocks. Keeping well clear of shallow areas and well clear of buoys is the best strategy. The little * should maybe be interpreted as "there are rocks around here." I took a good chunk out of the fiberglass encapsulation on my keel a couple of years ago in the marked channel but obviously too close to the buoy on Lake Champlain.
