I have a question concerning the marker on the south side of Ragged Island....

when approaching it from the South shouldn't it be passed on the left? It would seem so but I idled past it one day recently and observed a large boulder under the surface which when the Lake is lower may cause interference.

Duncan Press's Ragged Island


Bizer's Ragged Island

Answer: When going south and west around Ragged Island, go out in the deep water, as the course suggests. OR, if you are going to land, go at NO WAKE speed (6 miles an hour) and keep one eye on the water. There could be rocks, as you noticed on the Ragged Island site, as there are in most shoals.

Go at NO WAKE speed whenever you are in a shoal area.

When you're not sure what a buoy means, try the Duncan Press chart. Forty-some years without a complaint tells us: the courses around the buoys WILL be accurate.

This is one of the many cases where the Duncan Press chart is preferable to the Bizer map. Compare the two... The Duncan Ragged Island has a course; the Bizer Ragged Island does not.
