    Often referred to as the "Mariner's Bible," the Eldridge Tide and Pilot Book was first published in 1854 by George Eldridge, a Chatham, Mass., cartographer. Now in the hands of the fifth generation of the Eldridge family, this invaluable tool provides information on tide and current tables for the Atlantic coast, marine weather, federal regulations, navigation rules, coastal piloting tips, and emergency first aid.

    GPS and electronic navigation information has been added over the years to keep this resource relevant for all boaters transiting between Halifax, Nova Scotia, and Key West, Fla. Readers also will enjoy articles about maritime traditions, fishing and nautical astronomy. A must-have for any boater.
