Default San Juan Islands Cruising Guide??

Does anyone know of a good, and inexpensive or free, cruising guide to the San Juans? I see that there is a really nice digital cruising dvd out there for 75 bucks. Does anyone have this???

My wife and I are starting to plan our summer trip from Seattle and was just curious if anybody could recommend anything.

Thanks

Gunkholing in the San Juans by Jo Bailey and Carl Nyberg has been a favorate book for boats cruising the San Juans for some time. I haven't seen their latest edition but I have enjoyed a previous edition. Another book that I haven't checked out but gets good reviews is A Cruising Guide to Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands by Migael Scherer. I hope you enjoy your trip.
