'Explorer' Type Charts for Eastern US?

I have been using the Explorer Chart books for the Bahamas and have found them to be the best, acurrate and full of good information about the different locations and anchorages (no, I don't have any interest, monetary or otherwise). Is there any similar type charts for the east coast of the U.S.? If not, what would be your recommendation for book type charts? Many thanks for the info.

Maptech ChartKits are the closest thing but fall short of Explorer. Here you need guide books to go along with the charts.

As far as accompanying guides go, I would say the best coverage of the whole coast is from the Dozier ICW guides, though many smaller area guides are more comprehensive.

Interestingly enough, a thread about crap sticking to the side of the toilet got 28 posts, while a post about actually cruising got 1.

The Maptech chartbooks are OK, but in the Chesapeake Bay, I prefer the ADC Chartbook. The pages are plastic coated and waterproof. You can write on them with an erasable marker, and wipe it off later.

When the first answer is perfect...you don't need more replies!

Seems logical to me: most people crap once a day, but only cruise a few times a year.

Make sure you get the Skipper Bob publications. There are a few, but the two I'd recommend are the anchorage guide and marina guide. Even if you aren't traveling the ICW, they will still describe where you can anchor and facilities at all the major inlets.
