Dawg,

Don't see any problem with Keylime1's post. He did not mention his company and he is not trying to sell anything, just stating facts.

I also found free chart sections on the Snake River Boating Guide (http://snake.seareport.net/). Detailed google satellite pictures are also available, sometimes you can almost use the color of the water to estimate the water depth.

Yes, but Sailnet's policy requires that the disclosure be done as part of the user's signature, not just in the occasional post.

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.

It's Spring! I've updated the charts here: http://xpda.com/nauticalcharts

A few people have asked me how to convert .bsb (and .kap) to .png, .jpg, etc. I wrote and uploaded a free program to do that here. (No guarantees...)

British Columbia printable charts

One thing I've not found anywhere would be free downloadable printable charts for British Columbia (Georgia Strait, Johnstone, etc.) I don't even know if such a thing would be possible. I think the University of Washington has some Canadian charts and maybe some of the Washington state yacht club libraries have informal collections, but otherwise anyone needing paper charts is going to be out a lot of money.

Canada unfortunately doesn't think that since we have already paid the taxes for the production of charts that we should get them on the web like the US does. I know of no source for Canadian charts online.
And by the way everyone needs paper charts of their cruising area by law I believe. That may change but I don't think it has yet.

Brian, thanks. I wonder what would satisfy the paper chart requirement ... 80000 to 1 series? b&w or color copies? old British Admiralty charts? In the US, some chartbooks print disclaimers that they are "not for navigation", so I wonder if they would or wouldn't meet requirements in Canada.

Possibly this is one of those sorts of things that gets enforced if a sailor has to be rescued after getting lost or is investigated after an accident.

It's not quite obvious that the Shuswap Lake tragedy would have been avoided if the runabout skipper with 27 empty beer and cooler cans on board would only have taken the time to unfold his chart and update his Dead Reckoning position before lethally impaling his boat into a houseboat.

But I do understand the electronics can fail and BC boaters have lots of places to get lost or in trouble.

I could maybe see some great value in joining a not otherwise dreadfully pricey or exclusive BC or WA yacht or sailing club if they had a chart library available for members. Maybe that's an idea for someone.
