With all this talk on the wedge and hitting under water objects, i was just wondering where most people boat (lake ,river, etc.)and how deep is it on average.

Lake Powell has sheer cliffs 450 feet deep and 450 feet above the surface. The problem is you can also go from a water depth of 450 ft to 6 inches instantly. You have to be careful there. People damage their boats routinely.

The California Delta ranges from 0 to 40 feet deep, with most of the larger sloughs averaging 15 to 20 feet. It is tidal, so the water level will change about 4 feet throughout the day.

Most of the bottom is really soft mud so you can generally survive a grounding with little or no damage. The bigger danger comes from just barely floating logs. A high tide can free a log from the bank and create a hazard where there wasn't one an hour ago.

An additional nuisance are the weeds. On many of the sloughs the shallow water (less than 15 feet) can have weeds growing from the bottom that can really foul your prop and rudder.

Shallow Water Seshys Blythe, CA, water levels range from 8feet at the most, to an average of 2-4 feet. Lots of water flucuation and no love from the stumps.

Lake Chelan has a recording on a historical marker overlooking the lower lake that states the lake is just under 2,000 feet deep with mountain peeks up to 9,000 feet high. here is info on the about the lake.

Upper Lake Chelan, Stehekin, Holden Village & The North Cascades National Park

Where No Roads
can take you...
A trip to the head of Lake Chelan is a journey into an unspoiled frontier, forgotten by time. Nestled in the deepest gorge in North America, Lake Chelan is one of Washington's largest bodies of fresh water.

Though the average width is less than two miles, the lake extends 55 miles into the heart of the Cascade Mountain Range with peaks that exceed 9,000 feet. A trip uplake bridges the gap between the arid desert-like climate of the lower Lake Chelan Valley, through fiord-like gorges carved by glaciation, to the headwaters of the lake deep in the Cascade Mountains. Along the way, you will lay witness to some of Mother Nature's finest work, though she certainly didn't spend much time polishing up. She left behind some of the roughest mountain peaks anywhere in the world

ours is usually around 150-200, although alot of the riding spots we tuck into will be about 20 ft. The thing to watch on ours though its it fluctuates 14ft annually so those riding spots can dry out in a real hurry. We also have a really big problem in the runoff in the spring with debris in the lake. Lots of deadhead logs floating around, definatley a bit scary with the thought of taking a digger into a submerged stump or something.

no lake, just a lagoon and it's about 7 maybe 8 feet deep.
