     Ft. Lauderdale based Waterways Etc. announces the 20th edition of the Florida Cruising Directory, published annually to coincide with the Miami International Boat Show.

     A guide to cruising Florida and the Bahamas, the FCD contains excellent editorial copy, sketch charts, bridge schedules, tide tables, boat ramps, pumpout stations and more. Jam packed with information, including thousands of classified listings, the book attempts to make it easy for the owners of boats of any size to take them anywhere in Florida or the Bahamas. 

     As originally stated twenty years ago, the books purpose is to help make boating "more fun and less hassle for Florida boaters and our cruising visitors." That is still the mission of the book that is published in Florida, by Florida boating people.

     If you don't have onboard access to the internet while traveling down the Intracoastal Waterway, this is the book to have. We have travelled all over Florida with it and have found the charts to be very accurate. Especially helpful are the notes on the charts depicting the locations and information about area marinas & marine businesses, as well as hotels, restauratnts, fuel docks and the like.

     This guide gives you a much better perspective of the areas that the Intracoastal winds through as you are going through them than any Chart Kit ever could. The local knowledge is top notch, providing details such as tidal currents to watch for, anchorages, and area lore. It's no wonder that this guide has been in publication for 20 years!
