Thank you all for the advice on Charliies Charts and Rains cruising guides
as well. They are great and very helpful for planning.
You have just hit the limit on charts available in Mexico
. Handy in the Sea of Cortez are guide books
- particularly Cunningham's Lower, Central,
and Upper Sea books
and Sea of Cortez: A Cruiser's Guidebook
(Sean Breeding), both with aerial photographs, GPS
waypoints, and larger scale chartlets. The 1:600K will get up and down and across the Sea fine, the guidebooks
will get you to anchorages
