After the Keys were complete, he began running other areas, like the 10,000 Islands and eventually the entire State of Florida.
He has covered 1000’s of miles of inshore water in his skiff and kept these tracks over the years. Now, Florida Marine Tracks sells chips that can go into a Lowrance or Simrad unit and overlay the most incredible aerial photos and the actual safe tracks that Glen has run.
