Best source for cruising guides?
I''m in 100% agreement with you. I prefer more ''objective'' info such as chartlets, approach sketches, etc. than an author that ''prattles on'' (ala C. Young).
For example, I have one of C. Youngs guides and find it much less useful than the ''Yachtsmans Guide'' series. Conversely, I''m not a big fan of all the advertising in the Yachtsmans guides either.
I don''t have any VanZant guides. I''ll check em out. Thus establishing my preferences might there be other authors/publishing houses to recommend?
