Re: NOAA To Stop Printing Nautical Charts

My first reaction was "OH NO". But... in my early learning sailing days, charts and basic instruments were all we had. Then comes the techno-geek erra. You really don't "need" a paper chart anymore unless you want one. When I "charted up" last month when we got our boat, I didn't buy the paper charts anyway. I bought water proof, tear proof, indestructable charts. As long as the data is provided to mariners and "print your own" is available... save the money.
