We completed the Great Loop in 2011 and would have loved to have had this book on board.  It explains all aspects of the trip and truly prepares you and your boat for this wonderful trip.  We never had much boating experience and bought our boat at age 69.  So don’t let age or experience hold you back.  Buy the book, buy the boat, gain some boating experience and do the Loop.  You won’t be sorry.  This book guides you comfortably through the magnificent and marvelous waterways of the Great Loop.

I have been boating for over 40 years and hold a 100 ton Captains license.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading the “Great Loop Experience-From Concept to Completion”.  I realized that just like “Chapman’s Guide” offers local boating information, “Great Loop Experience” is perfect for those boaters interested in embarking on an adventure of America’s Great Loop. Whether you are endeavoring on the America’s Great Loop or just sailing around your local harbors, this is a quick and handy reference guide to have on board.  I recommend that if you are a boating enthusiast you will thoroughly enjoy this book. If you have some interest in attempting or repeating the Great Loop this is a must read.

The title says it all "The Great Loop Experience - From Concept to Completion."  My wife and I have been planning our America's Great Loop adventure for three years.  I have read dozens of books and articles about the Loop.  I thought I knew it all until I read George and Pat Hospodar's book.   Their book is the quintessential guide for planning, preparing and completing the Loop.  I found their advice to be very practical and detailed based on their own extensive personal experience.  From suggestions to taking a shakedown cruise to detailed information on transiting every type of lock and 30 color photos that give life to their commentary, I can honestly recommend this book as a great resource for Loop dreamers and planners alike.
