Where are we? A Google map for lost readers to help you find Lake Hinuma and some of the places most oft mentioned in my posts.

And here's a nice map I "borrowed" from a fishing website showing the bottom contours of the lake. The black numbers are for meters and I have added blue numbers for feet.

Thouhg the draft of the Lido 14 is only 1.3 meters with the centerboard down, it does strike bottom at the dock. I carry a laminated copy of this map in Bluesette to help keep me from running aground while exploring shallower parts of the lake.

Until next, sweet sailing.
