    Do the maps show where shallow waters are? My father has a Princess 32 at Wyre Piddle on the River Avon and there are places where it catches the legs on the bottom of the river once we get past Evesham.

      Gareth: My maps don’t show the location of shallow water. On a river the locations of the shoals will be constantly moving and varying with the flow on the river.

      Have you tried contacting the Avon Navigation Trust as they are the navigation authority for the river.

        Yes I have tried contacting A.N.T. but they said they managed to get up there with a cruiser without issue. Thanks for your help anyway.
