America's Great Loop Cruise

The adventure of circumnavi-gating eastern North America by boat is known as “cruising the Great Loop.” Some adventurers set out wanting to be surprised. Bob Duthie developed a video program for those who prefer knowing what to expect on the trip. See previews or learn from the daily trip posts found in Cruising Stories.

The  program contains over 2,400 maps and captioned photos to show what awaits you. Each photo is captioned, narrated and associated with a map. Boaters can now experience the loop riding on the Katy Leigh (above) through this 6 hour narrated video slide show !  Buy now.

“I believe it's the best available preview for anyone planning to cruise the Loop and will prove to be a most helpful companion when they finally get underway.”
--Fred Myers, CruiseGuide Author, Florence AL

 I find the commentary, short, sweet, and right to the point and it seems to always hit the important points.”
-- Michael Shields, Bradenton FL
