While I'm a believer in having printed charts
aboard, a trip like this screams for electronic charts
. Depending on what you are using to surf the web, there are many free or very low cost options.
I'm a big fan of Charts
and Tides on the iPad/iPhone. $25 for the entire East Coast and you don't need a signal to use them. Tidal and current data as well. Even more useful would be the Active Captain database with all marina and anchorage data along with user reviews of each. Of course, you need the i-hardware for this one, but there are many options like it out there for all sorts of hardware.
