Re: east coast provisioning stops

One sees a need and fulfills it; that's one of the basic tenets of capitalism. People use various sources of data to satisfy their needs or solve their problems; that's ingenuity. Some people just complain; that's counter-productive for everyone.

These spots are often not near a grocery store, or a restaurant, or West Marine but simply a place to anchor for a night. Someone needs to compile a comprehensive, list of places to anchor for sailors who don't have local knowledge.
There are two good ones I know of - Mark Doyle's On the Waterway Chartguides, and Chuck Baier and Susan Landry's The Great Book of Anchorages. Both excellent resources, and as one who lectures and writes on the ICW, I highly recommend both of them for those wanting good, accurate anchoring information on the ICW - information written by marine PROs - not Joe from Nebraska who bought a boat and loves to post online, and inaccurately, about all the neat places he's found to anchor.
smurphny and Seaduction like this.

Thanks for posting that. I have never heard of the Baier/Landry book. Will check it out.

Re: east coast provisioning stops

it's The Great Book of Anchorages - and I have no commercial interest in the book, although I did review it favourably for SAIL.

There is a lot of good info out there, but will there ever be the complete source of our coast for the visiting sailor? I don't think it's possible, but it's worth trying to improve.
This exact thought was what led me to develop my boat show seminar, Sailing South, First Timers' Guide to the ICW. After a few trips south, I'd figured it out and it was a lot easier trip. In Georgetown Bahamas, I got into a discussion with some others about what information they would have liked to have for their first ICW trip. That was revealing.
Sure enough, the information is all available, and easy to find. The real problem is that newbies don't know the questions to ask! That only comes from experience.
Still, Xort's idea here has given me an idea that I plan to include in my seminars, and I suspect several others have found this thread useful. I hope everyone continues to post the information Xort was looking for here.
[edit - good news, Xort has restarted this thread, under provisioning stops - see ya there!]

Lots of room to anchor out as well.

Yes, Port Washington. Fixed it. Sorry, thought it was in there when I quoted the first post on it.
