Anyone used charts from "1yachtua"

I've been driving myself nuts looking at all of the chart options for the Caribbean.

Has anyone used the charts purchased from "www.1yachtua.com" and, if so, are you satisfied with the product?

I'll be using these with OpenCPN & PolarNavy.

Thanks in advance.......

If you care to enrich some Ukrainian mafia group by paying for outdated pirated charts, go ahead...

Well, the "UA" might indicate the origin, but I cannot say. However; they (1yachtua.com) took the time to ask Google for a copyright takedown, which seems odd if they weren't legit:

Re: Anyone used charts from "1yachtua"

No official chart would let two glaring spelling mistakes creep into their charts for ages...
'Fronignan ' instead of 'Frontignan', and 'Etang' spelt with a grave instead of an acute accent...
Here is the "official" chart the Yachtua chart is based on. By the way this Maptech chart was pirated around 2002 (that's why I have it). No sign of these spelling mistakes...
Now if you look closely, you can see that tiny details (a bridge, a spit of land, symbols for marshy areas ...) are missing
It is likely that contours have been digitally extracted, then details were hand corrected but not perfectly...
'Nuff said...

You talk about own wrong belief!
I am author and web-site of 1yachtua and all maps.
Prolong ten years I drew these maps in CorelDraw, like other cartographers (Imray, NV Chart). It is enormous labour of ONE man but not maffia.
My web-site works from 1998 and for every possessor of copyrights it was enough time to question the own rights. A web-site has hosting in the USA and all sales go through the banks of ЕU.
Search maffia under a own bed!

You have original concepts about piracy!
1. An error in writing talks about that my map is not the copy of the German map.
2. Who will copy my map will copy my error!
3. Most my users like clearness and visibility of image
4. End price!
Yes, I can skip a comma!
BUT in for to draw such map it is needed to make more than 5 million clicks of a mouse! Only for one map!

Thanks for a good laugh...
5 million clicks: suppose one click per second for 12 h a day gives 115 days per chart, a bit more than 4 months working 6 days a week.
So a hundred such charts would have taken you about 400 months, 33 years of hard work at one clik per second...
Ever thought of entering the Guiness book for the most stupid drudge ever freely undertaken by a man ?

Ok! May be 500 000 click? Or 150 000...
Main question is - this is "easy money", but not "stolen money"?!
