Help for navigating from Port Huon to Franklin

The stretch of water between Port Huon and Franklin Marina is tricky to navigate in a boat with any sort of draught.  David Nash demonstrated the problem to Graham Rankin and me one evening when he brought us upstream on the Yukon between tides, and located a mud bank off Herriot's point with his keel!  LBT member Doug Emery has created a custom Google Map to help alleviate this problem. It documents all the critical points along the way with both text and photos and with lots of useful advice for keeping on course.  Get it from Doug's site:  http://www.setech-it.com.au/huon-river-navigation.html
