The Eldridge Tide and Pilot Book, 2018
The chances are that if your great-grandparents went boating somewhere on the Atlantic coast, a copy of the ELDRIDGE TIDE AND PILOT BOOK was on board. Since 1875, when George W. Eldridge published the first edition, ELDRIDGE has been the most relied-upon source for helpful information about tides and currents, and a whole lot more.
Not only is it loaded with valuable information, it's the least expensive guide of its kind available. That's why it's been a bestseller since 1875.
