I’m looking for an image/map of Knife Lake that shows just Knife without any of the surrounding lakes and other stuff. Something very similar to this image of Saganaga. I’m trying to find something that shows good detail, including islands. Topography and bathometry would be great. I’m having a canoe built and want the image lain into the floor of the canoe. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know if you're looking for an actual picture or depth maps like these.

For some reason my photo isn’t loading properly. What I attached looks nothing like what’s showing up. I’ll try again.

I can’t get photos to load properly. They’re really messed up. But if you go to this amazon link, you’ll see the type of image I’m looking for of Knife Lake. It doesn’t need to be exactly this, but something similar. Map

I’m looking for something showing just Knife Lake alone. Like in the link above.

I would think any graphic design company could do that for you. Maybe approach the local HS graphic design teacher for a class project.

How do you plan to use it, ie. decoration or function? I recall someone published single lake topography maps on about 7x10 while plastic sheets a few years ago, but have not seen them for awhile.

It’s going on the bottom of my new canoe. Like the photos here.

I have some of those. But they show extra stuff around the lake in question and Knife takes up at least two different plastic sheets. I only have the south arm.

If I were dong this I would contact some of the map companies. I would think that one or all of them might produce their maps digitally and would be able pull out a single lake and produce a map of appropriate size.

That’s a great idea!

You could print an image from Google Earth. Spend some time trimming it to just the lake, and visit a printshop to enlarge, print it out.

I could probably do the same with Garmin Basecamp and a Sat/aerial Birdseye subscription.
CalTopo Has a lot of map options.

That Frost River canoe is one of the coolest things I've ever seen...
 
11/19/2019 05:45PM
Is that a Stewart River? Merrimack?

I agree. But Knife Lake holds a special place in my heart. So that’s what I’m shooting for.

Merrimack. They’re starting the build of my Osprey this week.

If I don’t get a Knife Lake image figured out I think I might go with a big compass.

Her canoe is already going to be too pretty to paddle... that might put it over the top.

Treehorn may have provided just what you need.

If not, I would suggest contacting lakeart.com. They do the outlines of lakes in wood. I don't know if they would provide you with a map or an image that would work, but it might be worth talking to them. I had them do a relief map of the little lake where we have our lake cottage and it is beautiful.

Lol. No issues with that shipping charge! But I absolutely fell in love with the Osprey from Merrimack.
