Best Caribbean Paper Charts

After a research in the archive (yes yes I swear...) it look like the preferred chart-book for Bahamas is ''EXPLORER'', thanks they are on order wright now.

But farther south, down to Grenada, I have only found NV-Chartbook, 5 different book to cover it.

NV-Chart is the way to go, or you have another suggestion.

We use Imray Caribbean charts and the Chris Doyle Sailor's Guides for the entries but if you have the money buy the chart packs.

Stay with me...almost done!

A friend suggested this: 2/3 ratio reproduction chart from:
NIMA Nautical Chart Folio 220 - Caribbean Sea - British Virgin Islands to Grenada (Windward & Leeward Islands) - 33 Charts | Bellingham Chart Printers

Somebody has experience with this provider?

I find black and white only charts hard to read and confusing in areas of a lot of shoaling etc.... just when you dont want to be confused. I had some of their charts years ago and they were terrible. I have heard they are better now...
