WELCOME Aboard !!!

You might look at Bluewater Charts:
Bluewaterweb (Xerox Chart Portfolios)

Or just "Google" < charts of the Windward Islands >.

There are handy German published chart packs available. The ones I've got came from Kelvin Hughes in Southampton. I'm pretty sure that Maptech produce them now.

Unlike a lot of modern charts, the shore detail is very good. I've used them for navigating the hire car round a few of the islands!

Hi, coultereng.

Many cruisers like the CYC charts (Caribbean Yachting Charts). Google it for sources.

Don't get b&w photo copies. The word inexpensive makes me think ouch. Get the most detailed, and never go cheap on charts. It can kill you, and I know from personal experience....dbl ouch!!!!!

In which case, I must compliment you on your excellent resurrection.
