Summary

THE trusted planning guide to cruising the Chesapeake, now updated and improved to work with online navigation sites and tools *Gunkhole: A small, quiet, out-of-the-way body of water seldom frequented by the boating fraternity because it is difficult to find or enter, or at least perceived to be. Cruising the Chesapeakeis also the only cruising guide that addresses the history, lifeforms, and lifestyles of the Chesapeake. Written by a lifelong sailor and resident of the bay, the updates on this version ensure that you stay safe and have fun exploring this vast region. The guide is the only one to contain cruise itineraries of 3-, 9-, and 16-days, organized for southern, central, and northern areas. (That's a total of 9 suggested trips, over 54 days worth of cruising!) Inside you will find: Updates to the cruising guide narrative sections Appropriate GPS data added to all anchorages and harbors Change/update assorted sidebars on navigation hazards and safety topics New listing of marinas and their facilities (there are over 350 marinas in the Chesapeake alone) "Shellenberger has perfected the art of gunkholing...An excellent book for both those who enjoy weekend cruises and those who merely want to know more about Chesapeake Bay." -- Daily-Press(Newport News, VA) "A truly monumental guide." -- Sunday Capital(Annapolis, MD) "With more than 3,000 miles of shoreline, the Chesapeake Bay offers a treasury of cruising spots.
