Thanks everyone. Joe, I'm going to Google earth those places this evening. Board down I'm all of 6 feet. Up I'm around 2. And it's a cast iron swing keel so hitting bottom is no big deal. I have a depthfinder, gps and separately a navionics chart plotter app on my phone. (Droid - well worth the $10 but it does suck battery) really looking forward to this. May do the private ramp and hope my $20 ramp fee buys some protection for my tow rig.
Keep the expenses low and the good times high.
