Re: printing charts ?
One of the problems you'll find with printed charts is running ink. A few drops and a deep spot in the bay becomes a channel thru a shoal. No so good. I have heard that there are cartographers, probably world wide, that will call up and print the chart in a waterproof format fairly reasonable, probably the cost of a chart before shipping costs.
If you actually use a chart for plotting, erasing the pencil marks may also erase some of the chart. Very bad.
