G'day Guys

I am looking at sailing from NC to Aust beginning in your summer 2009 via the ICW. I have been looking for a good book on cruising the ICW but have come up trumps. Any help from yourselves would be much appreciated.
Regardss Mik

hey mik...welcome aboard!
The ICW has a number of books/guides written about it. Best charts are the Maptech chart kit. A 6' draft and 64'stick are about maximum for the journey.
Skipper Bob's guide to anchorages along the ICW is a MUST if you don't want to pay for expensive marinas on the journey more than necessary. Dozier's Mid Atlantic and Southern Waterway guides are comprehensive.

Finally, if you plan on doing inside and outside hops on south....the Dodge Guide to SE US inlets is indispensable.

If you'er gonna be a sailor at all, then run the outside and be a sailor!
The ICW was not really made for the "Blow Boat" but for the power boat!
Good Luck!
