"The Waggoner Cruising Guide is often called....the Bible for Northwest Cruising. Each year it is extensively updated to provide the latest information covering each cruising area along with detailed listings of moorage and fuel facilities. There's text on anchorages, Local Knowledge, the flavor of each area, some history, and list on things to see and do. Lots of maps and photos, too. (The Waggoner contains 150 maps and 375 photos.) More than a catalog of listings and maps, the Waggoner is praised as a good read. The Waggoner is full of navigation tips, weather lore, anchoring ideas, and local knowledge. Serious sidebar features and descriptions explain tide-rips, reversing tidal rapids, stern-tie lines, shellfish toxins, and more. Lighter pieces and descriptions include the lost-in-the-'50's flavor of downtown Olympia; the proper attitude while waiting at the Ballard Locks (it takes as long as it takes, and that's how it is); and the discovery of a genuine, fur-bearing trout (very rare) in Prince Rupert. These stories are intended to entertain but also instruct, giving an insider's look at hazards, joys, and just plain facts of Northwest boating. Things change. Don't get caught without the latest cruising information for 2015."--Amazon.ca.
