Updated 11/13/2020 for changes to Fernandina to avoid minor shoaling (was 7.0 MLLW, found path for 9.5 MLLW) plus other fine tuning to increase leeway in shallow spots. Also, all four Long Tracks were modified to correct a problem of downloading into Navionics - they all have a new date of 11/13/2020.
I've edited my tracks to take out all the circling I did waiting for bridges to open and to remove all side trips and then connected them all together. The result was four tracks covering from Norfolk, VA to Ft Lauderdale, FL, much like the old magenta line but updated to avoid current ICW shoaling.
I've also included a package of 18 side trips that start adjacent to the blue dotted Bob423 ICW track and show the way to marinas and anchorages that I use. The side trip tracks are in red to avoid confusion with the blue Bob423 ICW Track. All GPX files have been tested to load properly and display with Aqua Map and Navionics. Garmin Active Captain will load the files but won't display the entire length.
Note: the tracks are good as of the time stamp on the GPX file, they may not show the deepest water after that date due to shoaling which is a continuous problem on the ICW. As always, the Captain assumes all risks in using these files.
