I got the chart set from Cape Flatery to SF. I also had E charts. I used the charts to track overall progress but not the detailed chart. I think they are readable but not the best. They work as a back up.

Fair Winds,


Between us there was, as I have already said somewhere, the bond of the sea. Besides holding our hearts together through long periods of separation, it had the effect of making us tolerant of each other's yarns -- and even convictions. Heart of Darkness

I have a couple of Itronix laptops from e-bay. teh IX260 is the better one. It goes for about $200. Put a USB GPS puck on it and you are set. SEACLEAR and a $50 book of charts and you are set. Redundancy, I got lots of storage room on mine, I have 4 USB puck GPS, 3 handheld Gps, 3 Itronix Laptops, all the data and programs on CD / DVD. Chart Books and or Cruising guides of all the areas. That and a 22" flatscreen monitor in teh lower helm that I can see clearly from the cockpit I figure it is enough.
