Re: NOAA To Stop Printing Nautical Charts

John, we both know you ARE a dinosaur - no doubt about it. I have drawers filled with paper charts that have taken on alien life forms from years of non-use. Those same charts are scanned into my GPS Plotter, which I rely on as my primary source of navigation and have yet to have a failure in 11 years of constant operation. It draws very little current, the display is supertwist, which makes it sunlight viewable, and there's NEVER any guesswork as to my EXACT location. The next time we are in the same vicinity, which I sincerely hope is soon, I will give you each and every one of those charts. The aliens within can colonize your boat instead of residing on mine.

Stay safe old friend,

Gary
