From Puget Sound to Ketchikan, AK, including the west coast of Vancouver Island and Haida Gwai, this popular annual guide provides complete information about marinas, marine parks and fuel docks, U.S./Canada border crossings and Customs, VHF radio requirements, and more. (Also available at the Apple app store)For each cruising area, you'll find a list of charts needed, overviews of the area, and detailed listings of moorage and fuel facilities. There's text on anchorages, piloting, the flavor of each area, some history, and comments on things to see and do. Lots of maps and photos, too. (The Waggoner contains 150 maps and 350 photos.)The Waggoner's maps, showing the coverage of each chapter, the harbors, and individual marinas, are one of its most popular features. They show approach routes and facilities, and take much of the anxiety out of entering a harbor for the first time. Maps of individual marinas detail the entrances and markers, shoal areas, dock layout, and location of the guest moorage and key facilities. Generally, if it's not obvious how to get in and where to find what you need, the Waggoner provides a marina map.The Waggoner is an easy reference to use. To find the page you need, turn to the index, table of contents, or the locator maps in the front of the book. Charts for each area are listed right up front in the chapters. The Waggoner's detailed listings of marine facilities are logically organized and updated each year by Mark Bunzel and the Waggoner staff.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-'50s feel 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.The Waggoner includes Green Pages reference pages with conversion tables, Morse code, Beaufort Wind Scale, VHF channels for Washington and B.C. waters, and a handy calendar. The Waggoner also contains telephone listings for U.S. and Canadian Customs, towing and emergency services.
