Charts for East Coast passage
We'll be sailing our "new" boat home this spring, from New England to the Chesapeake. We'll have chartplotters galore, one Garmin 182c on board with updated local charts in NE, another portable (not-handheld) Garmin complete the entire coastal US charts unlocked (borrowed), and yet a third (my own handheld) with the Chesapeake covered.
So on the electronic side of things, we're essentially covered. However, I'm of the thinking that the usage of paper charts, particularly on passage, is a good idea as a back-up to our electronics.
Is there a chartbook, chart, or set of charts that would be advised for Block Island to Cape Henry (as a back-up to chartplotters)? Keep in mind that once we get the boat home, we won't need these coastal charts anymore, since the boat will live in the Bay. However, we want to be safe on our delivery, so I appreciate any suggestions of how to keep our bases covered.
Thanks for your help!
