Great Lakes Guide

Waterway Guide publishes Great Lakes edition

Waterway Guide, the Annapolis, Md.-based publisher of cruising reference books, has released its 2005 Great Lakes edition.

The 480-page guide covers all five of the lakes as well as their connecting waters (as far south as the Gulf of Mexico), “with detailed information on more than 1,200 marinas along the way,” said Waterway Guide owner and publisher Jack Dozier.

The Great Lakes edition is the fourth for the company, joining the Northern (Delaware Bay to the Canadian border), Mid-Atlantic (Chesapeake Bay to the Intracoastal Waterway in Florida) and Southern (Florida, the Gulf of Mexico and the Bahamas) editions.

All of the guides carry a $39.95 cover price. Goto: http://www.waterwayguide.com/

A good story from my old cruisin’ grounds, though it’s not as tough as he makes it sound.
“Wild on Superior”~ By Marlin Bree, in “Cruising World” (April 6, 2005)
A solo voyage into the northern arc of the world's largest freshwater lake mixes brief moments of fellowship with long spells of perfect solitude

Re: Great Lakes Guide

This book is terribly inaccurate. Don't get it. See my post in the book reviews section of this site for details.

It's fine if your draft is 2', but for a monohull sailboat... it's best to keep looking for other guides.
