POST YOUR SAIL PLANS AND CHART PHOTOS HERE..SEE EACH LOCATION IN EACH DISCUSSION..GO TO SEE ALL.

I SAW DIFFERENT CHARTS POSTED BY MEMBERS. I think posting them as a photo here would be great..Others can view larger, and even print them out. Be sure to go to VIEW ALL, as I have several areas of the World featured.

Here is a good web site that has a very good program for navigation.It will tell you just about what you ever need to know if your cruising and have a laptop.

Also a chart program I use is called Tiki Nav, It is made by a sailor for sailors.So he knows what is needed.

Good idea George, Not everyone knows or takes advantage of the NOAA free charts, you can get all US charts from NOAA but they are electronic, I have those on my laptop and use them as reference. But I am old school, I like paper charts. I have printed them with some luck but they are not so clear, even on my large format printer I use at work. And I also sail outside of the US.

Thats the idea Ken

Good idea Lola, Maybe this could become a spot to trade or loan charts. If you are just passing through an area you don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on charts that you are only going to use once so you could post a request for those charts hear then pass them on or return them after you have passed the area. Could work with cursing guides also.
Thanks

"I found that five wraps of line on the cabin top winch is required to prevent slippage and possible bending the stripper arm. I had one bend early on.  and replace it. Sam"
