The Great Book Of Anchorages Website

As we promised, the new website for The Great Book Of Anchorages,, is ready for visitors. Susan and I are about as excited as two kids on Christmas morning. You can order your copies now and they're ready for immediate shipment. This whole process has been such a fantastic experience that it's hard to put into words. From our decision well over a year ago to publish an anchorage book that will provide all of the information boaters like ourselves have looked for, until the launch of the website today, we have been like a couple of giddy school kids. Every step of the way has been a real thrill for us. But the website is a lot more than just a place to order the book.

We really thought it was exciting when we received the first run back from the printer. The book was even better than we imagined. Needless to say, we are very proud of the finished product. But when the final touches were done to the website today and our webmaster said, "Go for it", well, the feeling is unbelievable. What started as an idea in the back of our minds a long time ago is finally a reality that we can share with everyone. What still amazes me, even now, is that we didn't need a big publishing house or have to hire writers, editors or a large staff. We accomplished our dream with nothing more than a dream, a laptop, our experiences and a lot of hard work and late nights on the part of our Editor, Susan Landry. It's Susan's knowledge, experience and eye for nothing less than the best that made all of this happen.

We hope everyone will enjoy reading and using the book as much as we enjoyed putting it together. We also hope you will enjoy the many spectacular anchorages just as we have over the years. When you visit the website, be sure and take some time to view our photo galleries. One feature we like is the Interactive Map page where you can move around the map, zoom in and out, change the map look, and click on many of our anchorage photos. The photos are located on the map at the exact spot where we anchored on many of our trips along the waterway. The website will be a work in progress for a while. We will be working with our master webmaster to improve the look and enhance the experience. THAT'S WHY WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU. First, let us know if you find any glitches or anything unusual when you visit the site. We can get any problems corrected almost immediately. Also let us know if you would like to see any additional features. Most importantly, let us know what you think. You can drop a comment here at the end of the post or use the Contact Us page on the website. We welcome and appreciate your comments. If you're a Facebook user, don't forget to visit our Facebook Page. So enjoy and thanks to everyone for you patience and encouragement. Chuck and Susan
