I saw no difference at all, which as I said surprised me.
Channel markings are sort of nebulous in the Bahamas
from what I have seen, I have C map on the plotter which uses Explorer data and Aqua Map on the IPad
which is the actual Explorer charts
, very often there will be markers on the chart that are not in the water
, and that was before the Hurricane
, Private channels to Marinaís etc were well marked maybe with temp markers but there was something there.
Non private as in government
channels not so much, but 90% of the time there is an Active Capt comment on missing markers there.
From my experience there just really isnít any difference before and after the Hurricane
from what I saw, not navigation
wise anyway. I kept looking for shoaling but didnít see any.
See attached pics, itís the old ship channel just south of the whale, all the yellow triangles are from missing markers, but it was that way last year before the Hurricane too.
