ps-2014-homePractical Sailor Ranks On the Water ChartGuides Top Pick in Two-Month ICW Testing

Everyone appreciates the rigorous testing and unbiased reporting of Practical Sailor. But we have to admit, they’re tough and we were more than a little anxious when contacted for “review copies” for their two-month on-the-ICW test. As a non-profit, unable to afford advertising, we are rarely mentioned in magazines. We are proud of our work and thankful to PS for the opportunity to compete…and win!

A completely new title! On the Water ChartGuides launches new two-volume “ChartGuide” series including over 3,000 geo-accurate guidance notes and annotations for the Intracoastal Waterway. It’s a visual reference for the Intracoastal Waterway, richly annotated, compact and intuitive, and an excellent belt-and-suspenders backup. Color NOAA charts?—No big deal. Thousands of annotations?—That’s different. Less than $10?—A must-have!

The first step toward “Almost Free” was dropping the price of our printed guides from $29.95 to $9.95. And today, we’re introducing ebook edition companions at $3.99 . No longer constrained by color printing costs, these digital versions supplement print with geotagged photos, raster and vector charts annotated with digital breadcrumb tracks, satellite images of the anchorages, street maps for going ashore, and audio summaries.
