About the Author

Stephen J. Pavlidis has been cruising and living aboard his 40' cutter-rigged sloop, IV Play, since the winter of 1989. Starting in the Exuma Cays 20 years ago, Steve began his writing career with guides to the many fascinating destinations he visited. Many of his books stand alone to this day as the quintessential guides to the areas he covers. His books are different than most other cruising guides in some very significant ways. All of the charts in Steve's books were created using data personally collected while visiting each area using a computerized system that interfaces GPS and depth soundings. You can find out more about this exceptional author by visiting his Web site, where there is current news and information about Steve's latest projects, as well as contact information.
