Reviews from current users...

Chuck, Just received my copy and have looked through it. It appears to be exactly what I wanted/needed. By including the small chart pictures, it is easy to visualize the anchorage and compare to the chart plotter. Comments on depths to approach and anchorage are very helpful and often missing from other "authoritative" sources. I've spot checked it to anchorages I have personally used and your information appears to be "dead on". I will highly recommend to my cruising friends.--Rick Brown, USCG Licensed Captain

Hi Chuck and Susan. Firstly, we love your new publication, “The Great Book of Anchorages.” Exactly what we were looking for as we head off to the FL Keys in about a month. We’ve noted in our ChartKits a great majority of the anchorages we can manage with our boat and really appreciate the comments section included with each site.….. We definitely will be taking “The Great Book of Anchorages” along with us. Thanks so much for compiling this useful book.
--Barb & Roy M, S/V Waterdog

I was finally able to pry the book out of Bill’s hands to read it today – great job! Finally a book dedicated to boaters like us who like to stay off the beaten path! The Great Book of Anchorages is an excellent resource for anyone heading down the ICW – intuitively laid out with keen insights on approaches & amenities at each locale. Kudos to you both for putting this together; it will be a tremendous asset on our trip south. We can’t wait for the next installment – the Bahamas edition!
--Bill & Elisa O, S/V Phoenix

This is the book we wish we had on our first trip down the ICW. Heck, we wish we would have had it on the last trip. --Mitch T, S/V Shadow Marie

"The Great Book of Anchorages" is the most knowledgeable resource we have ever seen! --Paul and Gail P, S/V Opportunity

A great book for cruisers that want to save money. The layout is clear and to the point. The charts are helpful in seeing the anchorage features and the comment box is insightful. Overall this is a great book, lots of information and the price is right. --Pete and Jan H, M/V Norseman

Hey guys......very very nice publication. This looks very exciting, and much better than "that other anchorage book"......I got a bloody headache just trying to remember all the codes! Good job on the pricing of the publication too......right in there. --Janice and Dorsey W, S/V Sun Dazzler

Not only will I recommend this book as a must have navigational tool to those attending my seminar, "Sailing South, First Timer's Guide to the ICW", it will be in my own cockpit on this, my 20th trip on the ICW. Great job guys. --Wally Moran, creator of the video, Sailing South, First Timers' Guide to the ICW
