good points, especially the last. skimping on navigation charts or good ground tackle just make me wonder wtf
Be aware also that some insurance companies will not cover and will reject claims if it is revealed that the vessel was using photocopied/reprinted charts.
And if you do photocopy or print, be aware that with the exception of laser machines, moisture (droplets or spills) will soon turn your chart into a tie-dyed nightmare.
It's always kind of a mystery to me how people will spend heaps of money on toys and then try and save it on navigation fundamentals like decent quality charts.

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.
