    Potomac River, I'll find some photos. We run from north of Georgetown south as far as the 301 bridge. Water depths max around 30 feet... lots of shallows so the entire run all them time is spent watching the depth finder. On of our favorite destinations generally has me showing under 3 feet on the depth finder.

  6. The number on his house is 26 and he keeps it docked in his pool in his packyard.. LMAO...

    Just kidding. not sure what "pool 26" means either.. probably a marker on the water by his section of docking.

    Every dam on the Mississippi has a number, the pool of water behind it reflects that number. Pool 26 is also known as the Alton pool or Alton lake. :smt001
