SKU

The Great Loop is the “Interstate;” the intersecting waterways are the “Blue Highways” — the rivers, lakes and canals that flow into the main stream. Ron and Eva Stob’s latest book, Great Loop Side Trips: 20 Cruising Adventures on Eastern North America’s Waterways, is the sequel to their highly acclaimed book, “Honey, Let’s Get a Boat…”: A Cruising Adventure of America’s Great Loop.

Side Trips cruised are the St. Johns River, Potomac and Patuxent Rivers, Erie Canal, Little Triangle Loop, Lachine Canal, St. Lawrence and Saguenay Rivers, North Channel’s North Shore, Wisconsin’s Door Peninsula, Upper Mississippi River, Arkansas River, Ohio River and tributaries including the Monongahela, Allegheny and Great Kanawha Rivers, the Cumberland River, Tennessee River and tributaries, Upper Black Warrior River and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway from Mobile to Mexico. Contributing writers include stories of passages on Lake Superior, Lake Michigan’s Inland Waterway, Seneca Lake off the Erie Canal and a whale-watching cruise on the St. Lawrence Seaway.

Written for the Great Loop cruiser and the trailerboater alike, the book includes information on charts, guidebooks, marinas and launch ramps needed to cruise each of 20 Side Trips. There is also an Appendix with information on Trailerboating, Electronic Charting, Cruising with Cats and an extensive Resource list. The book is illustrated with maps and photographs. Sixteen pages of full color photographs are inserted in the center of the book.
