Maps of east coast boating

Does anybody know of or have any maps of the boating on the east coast? Something that has a concentration of runs in particular areas?

AW has a ton of good info for the runs back east. Might just be me, but it seems like there is a night/day difference between the comprehensiveness of their info between the east and Colorado.

Americanwhitewater.org has a cool new mapping feature

Go to American Whitewater - RiverSelect and pick a state. ONce on the state page, scroll all the way to the bottom and click on the "KML" button. This works with Google earth and show the approximate location of all the runs listed in the AW database and also shows whether or not they are at runnable flows. Can't see the East coast all at once, but you can go from state to state to see which has the highest concentration of runs or the Class of runs that you are looking for. Lots of options from western NC/East Tenn, to Wild Wonderful WV to upstate NY.

The best gauges for western NC are here MyFlows Asheville Area Boating Beta Page (Kayaking and Canoeing Information). Its actually kind of depressing if you look at it right now. Everything is red.

And yeah, Leland's book is bad ass.
