Does your chart show all the rocks in the big lake?
Only God knows where all the rocks in the Lake are! It is not within the scope of human ability to represent each and every one on a chart, no matter what anyone tells you.On a Duncan Press chart, most of the areas without shoals (areas six feet or less) but with rocks just beneath or at the surface will show an asterisk, as in the left illustration below.
Keep in mind that most shoals have rocks on them, often just below the surface. Avoid these areas, or use extreme caution. When the navigation course goes over a shoal area, slow down to "no wake" speed. Shoal areas (and places where the depth is six feet or less) are shown on the 2003, 2005, and 2014 Winnipesaukee and 2004 Newfound, Winnisquam, and Ossipee charts as sand-colored areas. They are also shown on the 2008 Newfound as sand-colored areas.
