What happens if you are in unknown waters and you have an electrical problem or loose all electronics? Some of the electronic charts are not 100% accurate; most are extremely good but than there is that time that they are not. You all know "Murphy's Law"? When least expected or at the most cruical moment.
We sent away for a heap more chart from Bellinghan Chart Printers http://www.tidesend.com/ which arrived the other day. Brilliant! All charts are up to date and at more than half the cost.
Now Capt'n John is gluing on the updates, for our older charts, that he has downloaded from the net. Big job and taking a lot of time. This is a part of our boat preparation.
