I have 7+ years into that idea. Perhaps you might download the free 30 day trial of PolarView (polarnavy.com) and see all the anchorages they list. It's approaching 10,000 separate anchorage locations, every one with local knowledge (details, approach, tide, dinghy dock, pets, services, and 6 "star" ratings). PolarNavy explains it all. There are a variety of phone/tablet apps that do the same thing - 26 as of today. Garmin's BlueChart Mobile is an nice example app for iPhone/iPad that has it all built in too.
