Some of you may already have seen this on facebook, but I thought I'd post it here, too. It's pretty sobering.

This is a great example of what we have to deal with in areas like Kuna Yala (San Blas Islands) and why it is absolutely essential to seek out local knowledge. The “official” charts we all have for this area are based on similar sets of data, regardless of the company or government we purchase them from, and as you can see, they are woefully inaccurate in many instances. This also speaks to the need to keep our eyes open at all times and in move around in good light in order to see the reefs lurking only a few feet under the surface. The brown color represents land, green is reef. The black line is our plotted course (from the guidebook) and the red line is our actual track. The “anchor” mark with the circle is where our anchor lies, and the circle designates the limit of what should be a safe swing area. The other anchor mark is where the book said was a good spot, but it was too close to a dock for my liking.
