I have to agree with Smack. Doing a search can give you a lot of what you're not looking for.

Sorry for coming across so bad, but to me, cruising under sail has been something I've been interested most of my adult life, even way before I was able to afford my own boat. Also , before there was an internet.
My feeling about this poster is, that he is lazy about educating himself about things that he is "supposedly" interested in. Almost everyone on this board, including newbies, has shown that they are passionate enough about sailing and are constantly absorbing everything about it.
Also, in the original post, the word FREE wasn't mentioned once. For me, that would have changed the whole tone of the post.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Well... Yes and No..

Hello reader. I am new to your forum.

I am from canada, and I just bought a boat in Hudson Florida... I have been searching for days on the net exactly as Waveride24 did... And guess what? NOAA charts does not give a clue about the intracoastal waterway... Yes I foudn all kinds of books to buy... But the iossue was to fond precise informations like waypoints and charts to navigate the ICW FOR FREE... I am not a beginner in that domain, but still, nothing crunchy to be found...

The link other members of the forum gives... are fine for some purpose, but I could not find either a single site with everything at once

The Cruiser's Net Website at Cruiser's Net is focused entirely on the ICW. One should be able to find about everything one needs to know.

FWIW...

sail harbor marina in savannah GA is right on the ICW and very economical as well as super friendly! I have a slip here for my 35' alburg and am very happy with the marina.

Re: Charts and Maps of the ICW

I am ASTONISHED at the arrogance of a few in this thread!! I just finished writing in my Blog, of how the sailing community is tight knit and always willing to help each other!

Seriously? The ICW easy to find anything out about?? I've researched for over a month now, on what the ICW route is. All I've found was small, poorly detailed maps, of PART of the system. Each map appears to show it running along the eastern coast, unless you can find maps that will expand. Yes, if I put the whole thing together, I'll figure it out. But seriously people, if you do have time for someone asking the question, how do you have time to write the response?? The arogance of calling someone out is bad, but I can say first hand, this example demonstrates the arrogance in vivid colour! Thankfully, my experience of the genorosity of the sailing community overwhelms the arrogance, and my overall opinion remains unchanged... but shame on the few just the same.

Re: Charts and Maps of the ICW

Tranq, this thread happened back in 2008. Most of them are probably long gone by now. Don't despair. Things have changed for the better. Mostly.

Active Captain is what I think will help you a lot and it is free. It is one of the best resources for the east coast ICW.

Re: Charts and Maps of the ICW

Tranquilo,
Welcome to Sailnet, I see that you recently joined.
The post that you are taking offense to was posted in 2008, I believe the offensive post was placed by a fellow that no longer visits SN. 8-)

As for ICW info, it runs from Norfolk Virginia to somewhere near Galveston Texas. The Salty Southeast Cruisers Network is a very active, frequently updated, easy to use web based site that spans the ICW. Active Captain is also very good on the ICW for an internet based source. Skipper Bob's is probably one of the most respected sources of info in print and there are many more cruising guides in print that are very good. I used the full size Maptech chart for planning the ICW and kept a smaller guide at hand while traveling. Maptech gave me the large picture for planning and the smaller guide was good for referencing as I was going along.

Cheers!
