I have both the Third Edition and Fourth Edition of the Kettlewell's "ICW Chartbook". I like the newer edition because all the charts are the same scale ... makes it easier to estimate distances with out setting and re-setting dividers. Also it has more current
Navigational Aid numbers. Probably not "exactly" current
... an impossible task as the ICW
is over a thousand miles long and the Coast guard is constantly making changes.
There are little anchor
symbols here and there showing suggested anchoring
spots on the Fourth Edition.
For bridge schedules, try: http://www.fortpiercecitymarina.com/...dge_sched.html
A schedule obtained over the net can be printed out and is (hopefully) the latest revision. Anything printed and bound is going to be current only to the instant it goes to press and that could be months or even a year old by the time you get it.
There are a few other ICW
links with up-to-date info accessible from http://www.snowbirders.net
(disclosure: this is my website). Click on "ICW Links" on the mail menu.
Tom and Mel Neale post a great report (from time to time) about ICW conditions including bridge information as available. Follow this link: http://my.boatus.com/forum/forum_topics.asp?FID=136
Good luck with your plans.
