Paper Charts Wanted

I'd like to have a good set of paper charts on board as a back up and they seem to be hard to find in this era of electronic chart plotters. Looking for some cover Norfolk to Boston. Any suggests or copies for sale?

Thanks!

Re: Paper Charts Wanted

They might cost a bit, depending on how many you get but the Print On Demand charts can be found here:

It'll at least get you started. Other resources on buying charts can be found on the NOAA site:

Re: Paper Charts Wanted

When I use paper charts on the boat I only use a small section at a time anyway. I found that printing the booklet charts at home and putting them in a binder is fine for me. The charts are the full size chart cut to 8.5 x 11 sections.

Re: Paper Charts Wanted

The Maptech Chartkits are probably the easiest and least expensive way to acquire a complete set.

Region 3 and 4 will cover just about all of the coast you asked for.

I was going to recommend a chart book. Any place you might be thinking that you are going to be doing a lot of "poking around" especially in the shallows you might want a full sized chart.
