|Reed's Nautical Almanac|
The 2007 edition of Reed's Nautical Almanac ($30) is awaiting mariners at bookstores and chandleries. It's not just a set of tide and current tables; it's also an indispensable tool for cruisers. There are three versions covering the west coast of North America, from the Bering Strait to Manzanillo, Mexico, and including the Hawaiian Islands; the Caribbean, including the islands, Colombia, Venezuela, Central America, Mexico, Bermuda, and the Bahamas; and the Eastern Seaboard, from Nova Scotia to the Mexican border and including the Gulf of Mexico, Bermuda, and the Bahamas. Each volume has more than 1,000 easy-to-navigate pages packed with light lists, charts, and port information, including marinas and such local facilities as boatyards and sailmakers.
