Thanks for any support you can give. :)

Free Charts and Chart Viewers
In May of 2006 I added a whole bunch of links for charts and chart viewers at our web site

Judy and I did the trip in 1999/2000 using Maptech and Digital Ocean CD's with the Windows 98 Chart Viewer and two Garmin GPS 12's. watch out for shoaling in Bauford, SC
