Abstract The first edition of 'A Guide to Anchorages in Southwest Florida' was developed and assembled by the Anchorage Advisory Committee of the Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council (SWFRPC). the Boaters' Action and Information League (BAIL), volunteer members of local boating organizations and members of the Florida Sea Grant College Program (FSG). It was puhlished by SWFRPC through a contract funded by Sea Grant and the West Coast Inland Navigation District (WCIND). A preview edition of the guide. published in 1993, experienced broad use by some 3,000 Floridian and visiting boaters. The first edition (1994) incorporated their comments and suggestions on every page, including several additional anchorages, improved 'chartlets' and photographs and numerous other revisions. This 'Second Edition' contains many copy changes, both in the introductory section and in the descriptions of a number of the anchorages. It highlights dangers in anchorages where lack of protection from stonns, poor holding, obstacles, or other hazards to safe navigation exist. Local ordinances or harbor management rules are noted. The 'Sheltered Quadrants' wind roses have been realigned to coincide with the 'North' arrows on the chartlets.
