Re: Maps of Marinas
All well and good, Marinas.com , Active Captain, Google Earth, but I know exactly how the Op feels. Sure you can get a feel for the land and approaches, but where is dock West C-23? Strange marinas can be confusing. When they try and tell you over the VHF it can be even more confusing. Throw in reduced visibility at night and you can find yourself in a real bind.
An actual layout of the marina detailing slip numbers and location you are not going to find using Google Earth, Active Captain, or Marinas , com.
The best bet is to contact them over the phone before departing and have them fax you over a marina layout. Hard to do I know when you are out cruising.
Some you can find on line, but as far as a compilation book detailing marinas in your area, I would be surprised if one existed.
