A Cruising Guide to the Maine Coast was first published in 1988 after more than four years of research by Hank and Jan Taft. It's then revolutionary format set the often-imitated standard for subsequent cruising guides everywhere, and its level of detail firmly established it as the "Bible" of the Maine coast. In 1994, Curtis Rindlaub took the helm as author, updating all the charts and expanding coverage to include the Bay of Fundy and the Saint John River. The guide is now in its sixth edition.
