Published by the author, in its final form to be supported by local advertising, this pilot and guide takes the user from Rye (not strictly Kent but usefully included) via East Channel ports and North Foreland to the Southern Thames Estuary and up as far as Dartford on this London river.
There is considerable detail, particularly when the creeks and rivers of north Kent are reached, with good charts which regrettably lack latitude and longitude scales and there are also useful aerial views.
This review copy, issued in a draft form, has something of the flavour of a work still in progress. Though liberally illustrated (156 pages in colour throughout) some of the photographs are poorly reproduced and the text could do with a further edit to clear some gremlins and minor inconsistencies. The author also has an inordinate fondness for long sentences with multiple semi colons. If whilst editing these are split up into more manageable chunks the reader experience will be enhanced.
No price is supplied with the review copy but for a reasonably modest outlay this, perhaps given a further polish, should provide a useful tool for those exploring these waters.
