FL to Aruba in April


You will find Passages South offered by Amazon, and at a reduced price. However, buy it new there rather than using one of their resellers, or you are likely to get an earlier edition...and with guides, newer is better. Blue Water Books and other marine book retailers will have it, as well.

WM will undoubtedly carry it. Interestingly, I learned last week from a book publisher that WM sells 40% of all retail marine publications. Given the typical condition of the book rack in the WM stores I''ve visited, I found that pretty surprising; they must do one hell of a mail order biz.

Given Sailnet''s business plan (essentially a ''virtual marine retailer'' with a reduced pricing structure), I would think they could chew away a chunk of that WM business in a heartbeat if they chose to.
