P&S Marine LLC recently purchased Charlie's Charts, a series of six cruising guides covering the western coast of North America.

Capt. Holly Scott and Jo Russell, principals of Seal Beach, Calif.-based P&S Marine, are well-known and active in the California marine industry.

Scott, the owner of Mahalo Sailing Instruction and Charters, is also a Coast Guard-licensed 100-Ton Master, a USC on-the-water educator and a West Marine consultant and has been actively involved in women's sailing for 30 years. Russell is the captain and owner of Ibiza, a Polaris 43, and has extensive experience in yacht maintenance, retrofits and passage-making.

Charlie's Charts was founded by Margo Wood and her husband, Charlie, nearly 30 years ago.

"We appreciate the simplicity of Charlie's Charts and the directness of it," said Scott, who has utilized the guides for years. "There are 'blingier' books out there, but when the going gets tough Charlie's Charts is the easiest to read and comprehend."

"I am confident the new owners will continue the publication of cruising guides that are informative, easy to use and provide current material for safe cruising," Margot Wood said in a statement. "Although electronic navigation systems continue to advance at an amazing rate there is nothing as reassuring and comforting as a reliable, proven hard copy in hand when preparing for or experiencing the challenges of cruising in unknown waters."
