Good anchorages in google (maps/earth)?

Hi all,
in many sports I have seen that a communities have saved good places in google maps or earth. Has someone a collection of their favorite and save anchorages for the south pacific?

Thanks CPT Balu

Advertising good places on the internet can cause them to become over crowded faster.

While not a direct answer to your question [and in case you are not already aware...] I'll mention SV Soggy Paws and the excellent S Pacific compendiums they curate.

You may find some of what you are looking for there...

Cheers! Bill

Be sure to check out Zuluwaterways.com and Noonsite.com. They have a lot of good information on anchorages, repair facilities, cautions, and much, much more.

Thanks for Soggy Paws.
Another good source is the Cruiser Forum Wiki accessible from every page in the forum.

John, then you must join another forum. This forum is all about helping each other . And it achieves that very well. Nothing wrong with sharing positive experiences. We will all gain much more by reciprocating and helping each other than ringing it alone. This site is excellent at achieving just that, for all our mutual benefit.
