Recently purchased the "Mid-Atlantic Waterway Guide 2001" by Intertec Publishing.
I'm impressed with the content and quality of the material. Anyone interested in cruising the ICW should have a copy of this book.

Information on the waterway even includes shoaling information as recent as summer of 2000.

A bit pricey for me at $40, but a worthwhile addition to the library.

What are the Northern and Southern limits of coverage?

John, the edition I have is the "Mid-Atlantic" which covers from the Chesapeake Bay to the Florida border.

There a two others: Southern....Florida border to Key West, Northern....Maine to Chesapeake Bay.

Thanks, Joe-

Is there much detail on the Savannah, GA/Charleston, SC area?

There's plenty of detail in the text, but the chart excerpts they use leave a little to be desired. They probably serve the author's purpose, but you would, of course,still need current charts.

Thanks again, Joe-

I'll be down (over?) in the Savannah/Tybee Island area in early April with my boat, and am trying to get well charted and informationed before I get there - I appreciate your input. Tom Zeno has put me onto an IC Waterway chartbook that covers Norfolk, VA to Jacksonville, FL that I have ordered. It is even pricier than the one you have, but it sounds like it will have the charting I want. I should see it in a couple of days, and if it still doesn't do what I need, there are some NOAA charts in the new West Marine catalog that will. And if that doesn't work, I guess it's the string and lead sinker routine!
