When GDW did the module, Pirates of the Vistula, they missed a far larger possibility for adventures and campaigns right at their doorstep. While this would not have been available in 1986 in free PDF download format, the maps and charts existed in paper form, as they do today, and sure could have been used in a bunch of different ways.

There is the Inland River Transportation System, all of the charts of which can be accessed here, along with detailed charts of bridges and locks on the rivers.

Then you have all of the nautical charts from NOAA, covering the coasts of the US including the Great Lakes, Alaska, Hawaii, and the Caribbean. They are located here.

Between the Inland River Systems and the Intra-Coastal Waterway System, you have close to 12,000 miles of water to work with. That does not even touch Alaska's Inside Passage or the New England Coast, or the Great Lakes.

I march to my own set of bagpipes. Caution: This individual thinks that studying logistics is FUN.

They that go down to the sea in ships,
that do business in great waters;
These see the works of the LORD,
and his wonders in the deep.
