I'm prepared to be yelled at, but here's the story:
A friend upgraded his fishing boat and gave me a Standard Horizon CP 150.
- I have no electronics on our sailboat, except a new VHF and small handheld GPS..
-I currently only sail in known waters, and use paper charts to plan wherever we go..
-I went offshore in a much larger boat and fell in love with the chartplotter and would love to snoop around the hundreds of routes and submenus... (i'm a nerd)
-I don't feel it is necessary to have the newest possible charts.. the river I keep the boat in is uncharted, as the sandbars shift so often, and I would just like to see our general position in the river, speed, course etc, on the "big screen"
Does anyone have a source for out of date C-maps ??
I'm sure i'll get a couple of "you're all going to die !" comments, but I don't want to spend a few hundred bucks on charts.. i need the $ for bottom paint !!!
Thanks in advance !
