Former Waterway Guide staffers form publishing house

Publishers Chuck Baier and Susan Landry recently formed Beach House Publications and are publishing the first in a series of anchorage books.

Baier and Landry have been active cruisers for decades, with tens of thousands of miles under their keel. They're both freelance writers and have been published in most major boating publications, including Soundings, Southern Boating, Good Old Boat, Sail, Bluewater Sailing, Marinalife Magazine, Cruising World, Live-Aboard Magazine and a host of Internet sites.

Baier is the former general manager and Landry is the former editor of Waterway Guide.

Beach House Publications and The Great Book of Anchorages series was conceived and born on a laptop in the forward cabin of their current Marine Trader trawler, Beach House. The first in a series of anchorage books, “Hampton Roads/Norfolk to The Florida Keys, Including The St. Johns River,” has been decades in the making.

This will be the first in what will be a series of six anchorage books that will encompass the waterways of the United States known as The Great Loop and a special edition covering the Bahamas.
