The problem - I'm considering commuting to work a few mornings in September by boat from Bear Island. I did this last year too - one morning was fine but the next I had to wait almost 2 hours for the fog to lift so I could head to the marina. I rely on visual navigation - I don't own a special GPS for the lake - so being able to see where I'm going matters.
I commute regularly between Mark and Glendale and that early fog can be brutal. Some mornings it's clear between Mark and Bear, but when I come around Mink I can barely see the front of the boat! I have GPS on the pontoon, but not on the Chaparral. I downloaded an app to my phone called Fly to's a chart plotter. On a clear day, I turned it on and took a straight course to Glendale. The chart plotter makes a track which can be saved, then called up when it's needed. Keep the icon on the track, and it'll get you where you need to go, even through the thickest fog!
