Re: US Navy ship strikes reef because of incorrect charts

If the USN ship was using digital charts. There is no simple way to correct them....
I have digital chart on my boat and I have Identified quite a few errors... It seems that the people who produce them, either don't know what they are doing or just too lazy to correct any known errors. The key word in that last bit is "known."
And for those of you who uses 'Maps' instead of 'Charts', Good luck to you. Seeing that Maps are for land use and not waterways
