Most charts won't fit in a clipboard. I'm not a big fan of rolling them up, and think storing them flat is a much better idea. Personally, I like the Maptech waterproof chart kits. They come with software for a PC and are relatively easy to store.

Best invention I've seen so far was a clear plexiglass overlay for the chart table, and it allowed you to "write" on the chart with a grease pencil/china marker.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
