Good map book (not charts) of FL coastline?

I'm starting my search for a boat and will most likely concentrate my search in FL since I have a great deal of family there anyhow. Other than your basic fold up map is there a better map book that might even show marinas? I have a very old "Florida Atlas & Gazetteer" (a book style of map) from 1989, I'll get an updated version if that's the best to have.

Speaking of marinas, is there something like a tour book of marinas, maybe even stating what facilities they have? I did find this site through Google but is there a book of marinas?

Marinas in Florida (FL) USA

TIA

This is the one I use. It covers the ICW in Florida as well as the rest of the ICW on the east coast.

Intracoastal Waterway Chartbook Norfolk to Miami, 6th Edition (Intracoastal Waterway Chartbook: Norfolk, Virginia to Miami, Florida): John Kettlewell, Leslie Kettlewell: 9780071803908: Amazon.com: Books

I like the Maptech book for coastal other than ICW.

Maptech Charts & Kits

They are both on my navigation table.

They are loaded with info on each marina.
