Know Your Ships is widely known around the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Seaway as THE indispensable guide to boats and boatwatching. The book enjoys a very loyal following, and it is our conviction that our advertisers will benefit from this loyalty as well. In addition, readers of Know Your Ships keep the book close at hand, referring to it over and over as they reference the passing vessels, in the process viewing your ad again and again.
