Hi all, I'm preparing for a winter Bahamas cruise
and pulling together the necessary charts
and guides. I'm on a pretty tight budget
, so I'm mostly looking to anchor
out and eat cheap
rather than stay in marinas
. So far I've found used versions of all the Explorer Chartbooks and Dodge's Abacos guide. How does everyone feel about Pavlidis' Exuma Guide? Does it offer a lot of useful information that's not in the Explorer Chartbooks? I feel like the Explorer Chartbooks already have lots of waypoints and useful information on towns and stops.
Also, does the new 3rd Edition of The Exuma Guide ($60) have a lot of updates versus the older 2nd Edition ($25)? And finally, how does everyone feel about "The Yachtsman's Guide to The Bahamas"?
I would check out all these books
myself, but I'm in the middle of Texas
so all I can really do is order them online = ).
