Glenn Housman of FMT (Florida Marine Tracks) shows how his product works on a Simrad unit in the Lower Florida Keys. This is significant because this is a very tricky path to run. It can be done under good tide conditions with good light, but the repercussions of being even slightly off track are serious.
The Lower Florida Keys are home to some of the best fishing and also the fewest boats found almost anywhere in the entire chain of the Florida Keys. Why? It is because the bottom is concrete hard and extremely unforgiving. Many lower units have met their watery grave in these waters.
As his vision became a reality, he collected the best aerial photography and then started running all over the Keys. When I say all over the Keys, I mean he ran everywhere. Every possible way that you can get through areas, he did. He also ran aground a few times. 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.
Hunt Jennings is a professional Kayaker who is also working his way through Nursing School. His kayak life started early as a few teachers taught him a few things and gave him opportunities to learn. This was a springboard to spending a semester at a kayak school in lieu of traditional high school. Through this program, Hunt learned a lot about kayaking and even more about himself. Soon he was challenging not only his own limits but possibly the limits of the human body by doing several first descents on waterfalls over 100 feet tall.
