2007 cruising books for Texas to Florida

I need some help with finding a good book, or books that will help me through the ICW from galveston to Miami and the USVI. Can anyone suggest some titles that have anchroages, marinas, places to go see or things to do, and perhaps charts?

I'm starting my route planning a little late (only 2 months to go) so any other advice is greatly appreciated too!

Thanks a ton for any help!

Robert

I used the Dozier WaterWay Guide from Texas to Florida, and bought the Maptech Chart Kit. If your bridge clearance is over 50', the Ellender Lift Bridge requires a 4 hour notice. Weather permitting, you're better off to go offshore to the Calcesieu River on an overnight hop. Otherwise, you're looking at 3 days to the same point.

Sweet, now all I need is a crewmember, or else I'm going to fly out and live on your boat for a few weeks, John! HAHAHA
