Reference: PC-ICWCB-NOR. A perfect navigational backup for that fluky chartplotter or iPad Navigating the Intracoastal Waterway from Virginia to Florida, or vice versa, is certainly possible with only a chartplotter, but prudent mariners like you know it's smart to have a back-up.

The preferred route is marked in magenta on the charts to guide you all the way down (or up) the entire length of the Intracoastal Waterway.

The Intracoastal Waterway Chartbook is a complete set of navigation charts for the 1,090-mile Intracoastal Waterway from Norfolk to Miami, as well as charts for all major Atlantic inlets. The chartbook also includes a complete listing of waterway bridge and lock characteristics; anchorage listings; mileage charts; charts for a picturesque alternate route; and―new to this edition―marina listings―all in a compact, easy-to-use format. The preferred route is marked in magenta on the charts to guide you all the way down (or up) the entire length of the Intracoastal Waterway. Safe anchorage locations are also shown to keep you and your vessel safe--and rested--as you cruise. Waypoints are also given for critical locations along the entire route, allowing you to pre-plot your course in your GPS. Use this all-in-one chartbook alone or as a backup to your electronic navigation.

Statute miles are noted in fi ve-mile increments in the chart margins, along with bridge, lock, marina, and anchorage locations. A handy place-name index makes it even easier to go right to the chart showing your destination.

While generally useful as an aid to navigating the ICW, this book has some flaws that seriously detract from it's utility.

First of all, the paper is incredibly thin and of fairly low quality, about one step up from news print. It is so susceptible to water damage that my book actually arrived, new, with one end of it slightly wrinkled from exposure to moisture on the shelf or during shipping. While I appreciate that this is a specialty item and that increasing the quality of the paper would have significantly increased the cost of the book, it would have been worth it. You literally have to keep it in plastic bag and handle it carefully with bone dry hands if you don't want to damage it.

Secondly, the small size of the book is a double-sword. The charts are not to proper scale (although they are all the same scale, which makes translation easier), which means using them for actual navigation less than straightforward. Also, since they are reduced, some markers on them are virtually impossible to read.

The book is useful to a degree and has it's place in your arsenal of information for planning and executing a trip along the ICW, but really only as a tool for general planning. It's the only source that I know that provides a sequential, portable collection of the charts for the entire ICW. So it's good to refer to at the end of the day when you're planning your next few days travel, but as a serious tool for navigation, or something that you can keep in the cockpit, it has some serious drawbacks.

I'm really sorry to have to write such a negative review, but Amazon sent me an email asking what I think of this chart book, and so here it goes. Maybe it's just the electronic version, but the charts are way too small (even when zoomed in), and they don't provide enough information. I had heard that this was a must have when passing through the Intracoastal, and this book has been almost entirely useless, except for the section which lists the marinas and their statute numbers. Even the section of the Intracoastal known as the "Rock Pile", which can be terribly dangerous, has no information found in this book. Again, sorry to have to say it, but this material seems highly overrated, and Ias it turns out, I've been relying on my electronic chart plotter and Google maps (offline areas) rather than this expensive book. There are other books out there that cost less and have proven to be more informative and helpful.

Great addition to the Waterway guide for our trip down the ICW from Hampton, Va to Key West. We used the chartbook and the waterway guide in addition to 2 GPS units. It was our first time running the ICW. We made it without incident!!!

The paper is not good quality nor is it water resistant. Being in a spiral form makes it convient to use in tight quarters such as a boat chart table.
It offers good information on selected inlets.

This book is well worth the price. I have a Nav ap on my iphone and ipod touch that does the GPS thing but having a true chart is so much easier. I tend to use this book with bino's and compass more than my GPS stuff. Also a plus is the bridge names are in the margins near the bridges for quick reference as well as showing anchorages.

Thanks for putting together such a nice chart book.

I had an earlier edition of this Chartbook and use it religiously for my many passages up and down the ICW from the Chesapeake to Florida. The newer edition is an improvement as it added a lot of notes to the margins of the maps (i.e. bridge openings, more anchorages, marina locations). The format is very efficient for cockpit use as it is not overly bulky and the pages can be flipped to keep pace with your progress. This format elevates my margin of safety as I can easily predict the next series of ATON's and daymarks to keep my vessel in the channel without having to search a large chart.

The chart book is good as a back up to your GPS. We were hoping for more detail, and larger charts of the Intracoastal. Would be better if it were broken down into two states per book with larger charts and more detail. Does not show water depth in the many small tributaries.
Purchased as a gift for our son for his trip traveling the South Florida lock system (Tampa to Jacksonville Fl) I'm told it was very helpful en-route and was listed as 1 of the top 5 things most needed for the voyage.
