If you’re in the market for a new guidebook or need to update the offerings in your nautical or navigational library, the first edition of Maptech’s Embassy Guide for Florida: Waterways of the East Coast, West Coast, Keys, and Okeechobee is hot off the presses.

The guidebook is plastic-spiraled for laying flat on a chart table or other surface and works hand-in-hand with NOAA charts in the Maptech ChartKit Regions 7 & 8 in both paper and digital format. There are more than 500 pages and regional sections, including maps, important phone numbers, and diving and fishing information. The easy-to-read, harbor-to-harbor sections include charts, tides and currents, destination highlights, aerial photography, dockage and anchorage areas, and information on approach depths, inlets, and outside/inside routes.

The Florida edition costs less than $45. It and other Maptech guidebooks, waterproof charts, and chart books are available at marine stores nationwide.—Capt. Ken Kreisler
