Re: NOAA To Stop Printing Nautical Charts

I find booklet charts to be fairly hard to use, if you're traveling any distance. I have no beef with them being an adequate, although not ideal, backup.

As a side note, many use ink jet printers at home. As all that do would know, the ink will smear when wet. It seems quite less than ideal to use ink jets to print marine charts, unless they are going to be laminated.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
