When I ran the ICW in Louisana & Texas, during restricted visibility. I use the Radar, Fathometer and the tops of the bushes & trees to determine where the channel is at. And use the chart plotter to see what twist or turn is coming up or in. Freaking GPS has had me a couple hundred yards to one side or the other and nowhere near the water.

Besides, Near misses are lessons learned and not to be forgotten.
