Waterway Guide Media recently released four updated cruising guides for the 2019 season: Chesapeake Bay, Atlantic ICW, Southern and Bahamas. Inside the covers are mile-by-mile tips and local knowledge for navigating waterways; marina and facility tables and maps; aerial photography with marked routes; anchorage information; GPS waypoints; bridge tables; distance charts and “Goin’ Ashore” articles on what to do and see in ports along the way. Each guide is spiral-bound to lay flat on a chart or cockpit table, and the covers are made of heavy, laminated paper for long life.
