NGA Sailing Directions, URLs for direct downloads

Cam pointed out in http://www.sailnet.com/forums/privat...wpm&pmid=31028
what a wonderful resource National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency is. But I find it rather annoying how they hide the links for downloads, especially if I want more than one file.

I have been maintaining a list of URLs to the files and thought I would share them here.

Unfortunately you still have to unzip the files and run the executable to get to the PDF files.

Please report any broken or outdated links via PM, I will then edit and correct the original post to keep the list current.

Links tested and valid as of 20071124

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

xort

what you are looking for is the "United States Coast Pilot", available in several chapter from NOAA, not NGA. I'll try to compile a list of links for that too.

Hi! Is anyone able to do me a really big favour, and copy the PDF's which are embedded in the .exe setups for 120setup.zip? I desperately need to read the contents of the file, but I'm on a Mac. God, I have no idea why the NGA make it so difficult - Why not just distribute the PDF? Why make an installer/wrapper just to show what is a PDF on the inside anyway?

If I get enough requests for this, I could host the PDFs on one of my webservers. BTW, if you rename the file .zip, Stuffit or many of the other decompression utilities should open the file without much trouble. I'm on a mac too..

Bill-

Be aware that many mail servers don't accept attachments over 5 mb in size.

TradeWind.. I made a very stupid mistake - I said 120.zip, but I actually meant 160.zip - I will need 120.zip, but right now I need to get across the Atlantic before the South pacific pilot becomes any use

Sorry mate, is it possible to help me out again with the contents of 160.zip? I tried to PM you, but I'm restricted as a new user...

-sorry, nick
