Valiente has a spectacular aura about Valiente has a spectacular aura about
I used a PDF utility called Down Them All on this site last year and yoinked the lot. Took about 90 minutes on a DSL line. I don't find reason too often to compliment the American government, but making these documents freely available for download is a terrific resource. I will still buy the British Admiralty pilots for the sheer joy of spreading out a really big set of charts, but all these will go into one or three big binders.

These are zipped up EXECUTABLE files (.exe). Use winzip to unzip them to a temporary folder or to your desktop. Then, click on the exe file. It will provide instructions/info, but if you just take the default it will install the files to a directory on your C:\ drive, e.g.,

C:\NGA_Data\Pub_155

Then you should be able to open the file OK.

You can also rename the .exe file to a .zip file and then Winzip or Stuffit will open them as if they're a regular zip file, rather than a self-extracting one. This usually isn't necessary on a PC, but is a good work around on a Mac.

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.
