Creating your own Personalised Charts

My earlier post on creating personal charts using UKHO data highlighted the amount of freely available, detailed, survey information available.

I’ve now updated and renamed my old DrDepth page to include a more detailed “how to” guide to using ReefMaster software to create personalised charts for use in Lowrance and similar kit.

The topic may seem a little technical but there is some very useful information out there without working up too much of a sweat (just browsing the UKHO imagery will show features that do not stand out on Navionics or C-Map charts).

Updates to Corkwing

Holiday season is upon us, so when I can’t get out fishing and get bored with Xmas tedium (both happen too often!) I tend to make larger updates to this site to keep it up and running properly. So this time…

Quite a chunky change is the move to a new look and feel for Corkwing, that makes better use of images and allows me to highlight particular content or trip reports. This means quite a few tweaks still need to be made to take advantage of the new capabilities, mainly through adding or changing images, which I’ll sort out over Christmas.

Also some updates to pages, including a new one covering Loch Leven, which I’m fishing more often these days. Some have expanded content and others some additional images added.
