Tom, great to hear that you're on the move.

Ports is a great book, many gunkholes are listed and many are not. They also sometimes list the private properties or ask you to respect the anchorage as there is a cottage near by.

What I usually do is, chart my destination and then go to Google Earth to see what's around...ie: cottages, shoals, beaches.

Once you get to your marina, you'll find yourself with more information than you can handle by talking with your fellow sailors. You'll also get some help on this site. There are a few from the Midland Area.

Happy sails.
