Re: charts

Man, you guys underestimate some sailors out there. Paper charts aren't as uncommon as you think. The poster who said nobody uses them? Not true at all. I also don't agree with your logic that we have to embrace all new technology. If we did, wouldn't we not be sailing at all? I'm going to Canada tomorrow. Wouldn't technology tell Me I don't need sails and a slow boat when I could get a powerboat and be there already? Paper charts are far more fun for me. Maybe someday I will change, but when I just went into the nautical store and they had a roll of paper for Los Angeles to Cabo San Lucas. I wanted it. The newest plotter not so much.
