Question ENC charts of the Gulf Islands

Does anyone know if it is possible to download (and pay for) ENC charts of just the Gulf Islands?

I really do not need to buy the CD with all the Canadian charts - and the cost is also prohibitive when you just want the the charts for the Gulf Islands.

Any ideas or suggestions?

I envy the fact that Americans can download NOAA ENCs and Raster charts for free whereas Canadians (or those who wish to cruise in Canadian waters) have to pay. I looked at the $599 price tag each for Vancouver Island East and Vancouver Island West for the ENCs and opted for the digital raster charts myself. I understand the appeal of vectors but it really doesn't take long to load each raster chart and they "look" better to me. Fugawi sold me the Vancouver Island East rasters for $200 including shipping and tax.

Also, just a comparison—the paper charts of the Gulf Islands cost $88 at Maptown.
