The new full-color large format (12 x 17 inches) includes an in-depth preparation and planning section, an annotated chart guide for the entire 580-mile transit, and hundreds of documentary-style navigation photos.The popular features of the Intracoastal Waterway and Florida Keys MTW guides are still part of this new format, including the detailed mile-by-mile navigation coverage, the page-specific Rolling Header of safety information, and the interpretive vignettes on local history, wildlife, and attractions.This guide is unique in that the mile-by-mile text is supplemented by annotated screenshots of government charts created using Coastal Explorer navigation software. Every mile of the route appears in the chart guide as one would see it on a laptop running e-charting software, richly annotated with navigation objects and waypoints. In addition, the guide is now updated weekly using Twitter feeds.
