Paper charts or Waterproof

Hi All,

I am starting my chart collection for the PNW and bought a couple Maptech waterproof charts. I like their ability to fold up very neatly, I can fold them so the piece of the chart I need is on top (without having the chart full open), and virtually indestructable. However, they've got their own chart numbering system that in no way coinside with NOAA chart numbers.

Question is, what type of charts (not electronic) do you prefer and why?

Dave

Hey Dave , I like the one that is called Mariners Ink. It is a spiral bound book of charts 16"x22" . West M has them on sale right now for about $40. I like this set up it's easy use , everything is right there . It helps if you have a chart table with storage where it can lay flat.

Re: "Real" Paper charts or Waterproof

I have the MapTech books for cruising and a regular NOAA paper chart for the Bay. I plan on paper, but my primary nav is electronic. Paper is also the backup. When cruising long distances down the coast, I will put a post-it arrow on the chart every 60 mins to crosscheck and record my last know position.
