Starting in the Exuma Cays, in the Bahamas over 20 years ago, Stephen J. Pavlidis began a writing career with guides to the many cruising destinations he visited. Many of his books stand alone to this day as the quintessential guides to the areas that he covers. All of the charts in Steve’s books were created using data personally collected while visiting each area using a computerized system that interfaces GPS and depth soundings. The resulting charts are so accurate that they have been utilized by electronic navigational data providers to provide additional detail to supplement government-produced charts. 293 pgs. Pub 2012.
