Chris Haden and Cathy Haden have spent a lot of time messing about in boats. They have owned a succession of boats; both power and sail, over the years. They have bare boat chartered in the San Juan Islands, gone house boating on Lake Powell and the Sacramento River Delta and cruised the California coast in their Grand Banks 48, E Ticket. One of their fondest memories is a weeklong cruise through southeast Alaska aboard a 65-foot Malahide trawler. Travel has always been an important part of their lives, and they have visited Germany, France, Holland, Japan, Jamaica, Thailand, Singapore, Canada and Mexico, and cruised through the Panama Canal as well. The Atlantic Cruising Club s Guide to Pacific Northwest Marina sis their first book together ,although both have published books and/or articles individually. Chris Haden retired from a career in the military in 2000. He saw service in Vietnam with the First Infantry Division and later joined the California Army National Guard as a full-time active duty member. His assignments led him to many far-flung destinations over the years, including Panama, Honduras, and Bangladesh. After retiring, Chris turned his hand to freelance writing and photography, with particular interest in the nature and boating fields. Catherine Haden spent her working career in the hospital patient administration field, including service on the Board of Directors of the California Association of Hospital Admitting Managers for many years. She also found time to serve as the technical editor for a medical book publisher. She followed husband Chris into retirement in 2003. Chris and Catherine have two sons, one now serving with the U.S. Army and one pursuing a career in hospital administration. Beth Adams Smith and Richard Smith have also been messing about in boats at various times throughout their lives, and, for the last two plus decades, have been focused on big boats. Coastal cruises have included numerous trips up and down the U.S. eaReview:
...will certainly become the bible for ... cruisers. Devoid of [marina] advertising and thus any possibility of the guide s judgment being tainted by financial interests. Each marina is given a full page, with ratings on everything from the number of TraveLifts to local scenery and a section that has information and phone numbers on any services or facilities a cruising yacht and her crew might need. Every marina in the book has a photograph, with many more on the CD. Nearly as indispensable as the boat itself, the entire series of ACC cruising guides is exemplary for completeness and objectivity. ----Blue Water Sailing
Atlantic Cruising Club s Guides to ... Marinas should make heading ashore much less of a crapshoot. No fewer than 230 marinas [in each volume] are rated with respect to their onsite marina facilities (recreation, lodging and so on), boatyard services and scenic beauty. In addition to critical evaluations, each marina s write-up includes information such as its number of slips, power options, rates, geographic coordinates, pet policy and handicap access in short, everything anyone could possibly want to know. In an effort to ensure the objectivity of their ratings, reviewers paid for their own services and did not disclose the nature of their visits until after they made their assessments. (Not every marina earns terrific marks, either.) The book comes with a CD-ROM containing the same information (plus 1600 [-3000] photos) and a versatile search function. ----Yachting Magazine
I was so pleased with the Atlantic Cruising Club s Guides! We planned our two summer cruises using your guides. How thoughtful of you to include not only the names of the marina owners and dockmasters, but also such often overlooked items as local physicians and dentists for each location. These are truly the best cruising guides available at any price -- and we've given copies to our boating friends as gifts. ------ Jay Scheiner, Vessel "Runaway"
