Small Craft Charts

Small Craft Charts used to be called ''tabloid'' or ''strip charts''. They are accordian folded charts that are intended to be easier to use in the cockpit of a small boat and often cover a pretty large area of the coast. They usually contain a bit more detail of shallow venues and narrow rivers and creeks. They have somewhat been replaced by chart books.
