Thanks so much! But what's the best way to use these? I have a computer (obviously) and an ordinary printer. Could someone with computer skills tell me the best way to transform these files into something I can use on the boat (no computer on the boat)? Thanks.

How to print?
"Save as" does not offer .jpg or .gif choices.
Print preview shows the whole page including the header and footer with all the text and all.

I would highly recommend for anyone using Windows, getting Irfan-view, and using that to view and print the files in question. If you're on a Mac, you're home free out of the box...

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.

This is really great. I finally found a plotter that I could print full size charts on. I have come across a few that I am interested in that give me this message: "The image “http://xpda.com/nauticalcharts/12326...EA%20GIRT.png” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors."
Is that the end of the story? Or is there something I can do to access these charts?
At any rate thanks BobW. for the work you did.

Printable NOAA Booklet Charts

My aplogies if this is duplicate information - NOAA also has an experimental "Booklet Chart" that is available for some areas online. I'm unable to post the link, but you can find the source by Googling "NOAA Booklet Chart"

The charts are formatted for printing on a home printer and staple together as a booklet. The scale is also reduced from the original chart.

Most programs that will print a .jpg or a .gif image will also print a .png file. You can probably save it as .png and then print it.
