Robin goes to boat shows to sell our Williams & Heintz Cruising Guides, and custom charts of Maryland and Virginia waterways. Last year when she was in Richmond, her booth was right next to a vendor of electronic navigation equipment. At the end of the show, he bought a case of chart books, to give to his customers, who purchase expensive electronic navigation systems for their boats. He wants them to have them for planning and as a backup.
Just goes to show that electronic devices are not replacing printed products, but they complement each other, and make each more effective.
Robin will be at Chesapeake Day at the Maryland Yacht Club this weekend, June 1st and 2nd, 2013. Pick up a copy!
