Re: Fishers Island
I hope to visit Fishers Island on my trip to Rhode Island this summer, or next. While I can't offer any personal experience, I can recommend a beautiful book for your cruising:
"A Visual Cruising Guide to the Southern New England Coast" by James L. Bildner, a sailor and helicopter pilot, who took some great photos of Fishers Island and many other spots in N.E.
It is such a beautiful book, my 2 and 1/2 year old, likes to take it out of the bookcase and look at it, comparing the photos to the charts. Just the spectacular photos of Cuttyhunk are worth the price, even if you never cruise the area.
