On the Water ChartGuides Update: ICW AnchorGuides SECOND EDITION Now Available

This summer we were thrilled when Practical Sailor magazine, the "Consumer Reports" of all things marine, awarded the CruiseGuide and AnchorGuide series "Best Choice" in two categories: mile-by-mile piloting guides and anchoring guides.


But we're even more excited about our newly re-designed second edition of the AnchorGuides and their completely updated content:


  • We've resurveyed over 30% of the anchorages and revised about 20% of our depth-annotated tracks.
  • The screenshots are all new and brighter, sharper, and more legible with NOAA's recent 400 DPI chart enhancement.
  • We've made the tracks, depth annotations, and anchorage bullseyes bolder, so you can more easily see the safe way in and out of each anchorage, with the depths marked every 60 or 120 feet.
  • We've added a color visual index to give you the big picture, as well as color footers for quick state-by-state reference.
  • And NOAA chart numbers are now included alongside each anchorage screenshot.


We really appreciate everyone's input. Please keep those suggestions coming!


The digital editions (iPad or Mac) have just been approved by Apple and are available now at the iBooks Store for $3.99.


The print editions are at the printer and will be available soon, still at the non-profit price of $9.95. Printed AnchorGuides will ship in about 2-3 weeks, in the order received. You can pre-order through our website at:


We are transiting the ICW northbound right now, heading the wrong way for the season ... but the right way to the Chesapeake Bay for the boat shows and gatherings.


We hope to see many of you at the fall events!
