    Default Chart Abbreviations ?

    I took these abbreviations off my charts from Homer to Gore Point and out to the Barren Islands. I know what some stand for but there are several I do not know.
    I made this list of all I could find.
    If you know others please list them.
    I made this as a MS Word Document hoping to be able to attach the file so others could just open and add info. Can this be done?

    Ken, check out US Chart 1. It has every symbol & abbreviation used on NOAA charts. I believe you can download a copy for free on the NOAA website.

    Don't forget the notation "bears at low water". I always wonder where they go at high tide?

    Just far enough into the trees so you can't see them

    Thanks for the info. I found NOOA site.

    Hi Eric,
    Remember me we fished together a few times?
    I am living in Anchor Point now.

    I sure do. I have several of your videos. How do you like it up there? I have been working on finding a place in or around Craig, but am open to other possibilities.

    Hi Eric,
    I like living here. Last summer I built a garage/shop next to the house to store my boat during the winter.
    After making the decision to move to Alaska. I thought about moving to Ketchikan or being near Bob in Klawock on POW. I also made the decision that I did not want to live on an island. I did not like the idea of having to take the ferry or fly to leave the island.
    I settled on the Homer area and found this property in Anchor Point that fit my needs.
