Re: Maps of Marinas

Thanks again to those that contributed marina maps to the online library I started. There's already 30+ maps up and most have them have been viewed multiple times and downloaded too. Seems like this resource is helping some boaters out. Reminder that, if you have a slip diagram, you can contribute it to the library by emailing it to me. Thanks again.

After cruising around a marina one night (a rather large marina) and not finding the guest slip or the fuel dock, I then kayaked around for an hour until I finally gave up. I tied up to a derelict dock and headed out in the morning sans hot shower. It was not the most fun I've ever had. Would have been heaven to be able to find the slip, have a hot shower and use their bathroom. Often marinas will leave the key in the dock box for you so you can get through their security gates. But if you can't find the dock box you're punished with no shower and no electricity, etc. The joys of sailing!

Re: Maps of Marinas

@ Dean101, thanks, mate. Personally, I always seem to come into a strange marina when it's night, cold, raining and I'm tired as hell, so the last thing I want to do is cruise up and down the rows looking for the transient slip or the pump out or the fuel dock. Hopefully other mariners will find this useful too. Based on the amount of traffic thus far, looks like they are. I'm going to link to bobwebster's printable noaa chart too because that's a fantastic resource he's built. Open to any suggestions anyone has to improve it.

I've noticed this also. Seems to me that they would look at it as free advertising to submit a property map, not to mention possibly reducing the number of "lost souls" wandering around the marina confines looking for that elusive slip or fuel dock. If you are creating a website database and have good contact info, maybe the sailnet crowd could request their particular marina to email you a digital copy of their map. I'm not sure if it would be considered copyrighted, but it may not hurt to ask for a release to avoid problems down the road. It's a really good idea you have.

Re: Maps of Marinas

Library is up but far from full so, if you'd like to contribute a map, please email to Dale@TheMarinersGuide.com. It's only been up a few days and has been getting a decent amount of looks every day (even today, surprisingly). It's also had several contributors and downloads so I guess some boaters finding it useful.You can see it for yourself at TheMarinersGuide.com, click on Marina Maps at the top left.

Good Luck
Very much my thinking re. allowing others to submit. The more I think about this idea, the more valuable I think it would be.

Re: Maps of Marinas

I always referred to Brian Fagan's Guide, there is a line drawing for most harbors with fuel and other spots noted.
The Cruising Guide to Central and Southern California: Golden Gate to Ensenada, Mexico, Including the Offshore Islands: Brian Fagan: 0639785801825: Amazon.com: Books The Cruising Guide to Central and Southern California: Golden Gate to Ensenada, Mexico, Including the Offshore Islands: Brian Fagan: 0639785801825: Amazon.com: Books


And a waterproof chartbook
WPB Los Angeles to San Diego inc Ensenada, Mexico, 1st Ed.
But the last few years I just punch the info buttons on the gps to bring up any detail including phone numbers and charts.
And The Log does an updated guide every year that helps find stuff.
