Charts for the Phillipines

I am looking for charts or bottom data for an area off Camarinas Norte in the Phils. Specifically, Samung Island and the islands and area around and between Maculabo and Tinaga/Guintinua Islands. Also, any general information regarding the area/towns/vils of the mainland. Looking to drop anchor long-term in the area and need all the info I can get. For now I could use an online resource or image files. I gotta reinstall all my nav software again but I have no charting for the Phils at all. Google and such are useless....

John (imagine2frolic) this outta be right up your alley!

Thanks All!

Hey Fishman, you are probably right. But John is undergoing chemo and radiation treatment for cancer right now. He's offline.

This is pretty tedious, but check here http://www.sailvector.com/

I have the old chart for this (the new chart is from the same survey)

PM me your email and I'll see if I can send a JPEG.

Or do you have any online storage I can upload to? I also have KAP file

Thanks for all the response guys! We're doing the legwork, as much as we can, online before making the trip to walk the property. Doing feasibility studies for onsite construction, possibly to include a haulout, but definitly a dock for a power and a keel boat. All the bottom data I can get.

Bewitched...coming at ya....

I've made up a couple of navigable Google Earth maps in .kap format of some of the areas you mentioned. Should be ok as an overview and planning maps. No soundings unfortunately,even my CM93 maps are very short of info in this area.

Hey Fish. Last I heard it was squamous cell. He had a big lump on his neck. I get emails from Mel. She says he's weak, but in good sprits. Keep him in your thoughts.

Came across this info re purchase of real estate in the Phillipines:

Foreign Ownership of Islands in Philippines, Asia

Foreigners are not allowed to buy islands in the Philippines because they are regarded as national assets. Land ownership is restricted to Filipinos. Foreigners can only buy islands in the Philippines through certain loopholes including marriage, incorporation, or through a lease. And these options mean that on paper, you aren’t the actual owner. However, if you’re working with people you trust, than you are protected to some extent.

The safest way to take possession of an island in the Philippines is by leasing a property. Provided the legal documentation has been handled by a competent lawyer, this is a good way of controlling property. A leasehold is essentially purchasing an island for a specific period of time like 90 years. Upon completion of the leasehold, the island is returned to the state or the original owner. Buyers may feel insecure about improving and living on land they don't own, buildings can be owned irrespective of who owns the land the building is on.

It is possible to own an island in the Philippines if you put the property in the name of your Filipino spouse. However, if problems arise, the foreign owner is at the mercy of the Filipino spouse who legally owns the property.

The last option for owning an island involves forming a paper company. A corporation can own land, and you can own up to 40 percent of the corporation. If the corporation is set up diligently, you can control the entire corporation, thereby effectively owning an island. One person alone cannot incorporate a company; you will require Filipino incorporator who will technically own sixty percent of your company, and your island.

NAMRIA charts and maps...

The Philippine National Mapping and Resource Information Authority (NAMRIA) has a comprehensive collection of charts and maps.

You may be able to locate the information you need on their website, above.

It looks like they only do cash sales, but if you have a friend or relative they may be able buy them and mail them to you.

Real estate sales in the Philippines are complicated by ownership sometimes remaining with the original titleholder, despite the fact that some titles date back to Spanish occupation.

Add to this the scattering of the population that has taken place in the Philippines, particularly noticable in some places during the Japanese occupation and it can become very difficult to identify the actual owners (and there may be a very large number of these).

On that link, I see 3 sources for Philippines charts - all are paper charts.

Chinese -- 26 charts - $119 each - or $1,309 for all - about $50 each
Russia -- 110 charts - $ 79 each - or $8,690 for all - no price break
US ------ 165 charts - $ 29 each - or $4,785 for all - no price break


Doesn't seem inexpensive to me. I must be looking in the wrong place.

dacust..

Even as paper charts $29.- each seems pretty good value to me. You select only the ones you require. I think you can also order scanned versions at a special price.
