Cruising Guides to the South Pacific

Hello folks, can I pick your brains as to what guides folks have used for cruising the South Pacific?

The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars, until I die.

I've heard Landfalls of Paradise by Earl Hinz is excellent. Charlie's Charts of Polynesia is also a popular choice. Both are readily available online.

The UK Royal Cruising Club has a guide for the So. Pac. that's for sale to the public, but it's about 5 years old. See Pacific Crossing Guide
