Here are some of the routes I’ve used in my chartplotter along with a date that the route was used.
These routes were created using RosePoint Coastal Explorer and converted to the .gpx files listed below. I then import these files into Garmin’s HomePort software where I create the .adm files used in a Garmin Chartplotter.
While these files are created based on updated electronic charts, these routes may need modification due to changes in the waterways and/or the users preferences for routing, water depth, marine traffic, etc. Feel free to use them at your own risk as the basis for creating your own routes.
Essex_to_Hartford.zip – June 2015 – Approximately a 39nmi path from Essex Island Marina, Essex CT to Hartford CT.
Essex to Devon.zip – June 2015 – A 45 nmi route from Essex, CT to the bascule bridge on the Housatonic River in Devon, CT. A long, fairly straight run.
Milford to Devon.zip – June 2015 – A 9.5 nmi route from the bascule bridge in Devon to Milfor Lisman Marina in Milford, CT.
Essex to Milford.zip – June 2015 – A 40 nmi route from Essex, CT to the Milford Lisman marina in Milford, CT. This route is a bit more scenic than Essex_to_Devon.zip since it stays a bit closer to the South coast of Connecticut.
