When I was a Huey Crewchief in the Army....the pilots used to take all the area charts and tape them together, then fold them in such a way as it made a chart book. They could turn the page to the next area, or unfold top or bottom to make them bigger.

I don't know how they did this, I never learned it....but all the pilots did this with their charts. A pilot's chartbook was a prized possession, as time and experience went on and they marked wire hazards and other things, along with usual cruising routes.

Any old Army pilots on here?

travlineasy will become famous soon enough
Just purchase a quality GPS plotter with the U.S. charts installed. Compact, easy to use, takes up very little space, shows you exactly where you are on the chart at all times, can be readily seen at night or day, always where you need it (at the helm station), and covers every body of water you'll sail in that 22 footer--including most lakes.

If you need a paper backup, you can download them from a number of sites, then print out the areas you need.

Cheers,

Gary

There are several chartmakers that sell reduced 3/4 scale charts that are MUCH easier to stow in a small boat.
