I guess the secret is out now about this big corner of the world. Glad you had a good trip Brad.
Rob and his Outers have this route well mapped, port cleared and documented. It's enjoyable with a little of everything; big lakes, small lakes, moving water, no water. Someday I hope to return to do the full loop.

Thanks for your comments everyone. Clearly I need to learn more about NAD27 and WGS84.

@Paddle: yep, it's a Shearwater, purchased from another CCR member about four years ago. I'm liking it more and more as time goes by. The wood looks nice, but I prefer low-maintenance. I'd probably trade for another Shearwater with aluminum or integrated gunwales.

I just had a look at that software you were using. Seems like the default is WGS84, but if you use the config menu you can select Nad 27. That should make things line up a bit better. My GPS coordinates for many of these routes have evolved as the quality of my handheld improved. When those Municipal maps were complied I was still using an old Etrex, so the latest maps should be the most accurate. Also, the municipality is no longer in the business of supporting local canoe routes, that finished in 2008, so those maps are at this point merely for reference only, kind of like those old MNR brochures. Any maintenance done on those routes is usually from the Outers club or my buddy and I. There is no longer a budget to replace signs, and they are frequently knocked down by bears, or (gasp) stolen by canoeists.

Really enjoyed the trip report. Always brings back great memories when I see reports from this area. I love the area and did Marshall and Gripp this year again as well as a couple of fishing stops at some other lakes.
