Volcano: chart shows up north of jetty (Porto Levante) batimetrics of 5, 10, 20m
I ask locals, 50m from coast-line, fishing
..while I was trying anchor
for n times...
" here bottom is 150m"
Volcano, east of punta Gelso. Idyllic bay with Crystal waters (not addressed..at all.)
It is said to anchor
in 10m waters, just before buoys... when I found myself in 6m depth
just well in the middle of bay
Taormina: on the southern bay under the cliff, it is not written that bottom is 40/50m, though "anchor symbol" is shown. Symbol is repeated around the corner (NW) of beach, where locals told me Not-to-go
Batimetric are correct, but chart fails to recommend to drop anchor FRONT OF RAILWAYS STN. in 7/10m water
(too easy to say!?)
Enough to say that a rock solid reputation is faded away, after years.
My edition is dated 2008, but the newest 2016 is exactly the same.
Honestly!? I do believe no one can live enough to write alone one single
book, not to say the many they issued....
More, beyond description of marinas/harbours, little is left to the adventurous explorer "sotto-costa". Not happy, really!
