    Great informative article. The mix of description, actual accounts, sound, and photographs congers up a vision of the past free from the usual nostalgia about Mississippi river boats.

    I have been reading ‘The Riddle of the Sands’, a story in which water depth plays an integral part.
    I found this article from looking up ‘sounding’ and ‘fathom’. Didn’t even know how much a fathom was, and not being a sailor , I previously had no idea of the importance of being able to detect this invisible landscape. Such an interesting piece of writing and I will bore my friends and relatives with my new knowledge. Thank you very much for making it available.
