Hi - I am relatively new to sailing since last summer and figure it is about time to order a few charts. I have my boat currently in Oriental, NC (Pamlico sound).
Specifically, I have found NOAA charts 11552 and 11550 to be approximately the right area. I know I can order them on the internet, but they are HUGE! at 36inchesx44inches, that seems kinda large to take out on my boat (22 foot sailboat) and use as a reference.
Is there another option that I am missing? Not to mention, the NOAA charts are somewhat expensive (or maybe I'm just being cheap
Also - do you have a recommended online retailer to purchase them from?
Thank you for your time,
