Purchase of paper charts for Caribbean onto the Pacific

Currently based in the USA, I am on the hunt for current paper charts (remember those ) for the Caribbean.
Stephen J. Pavlidis appears to have a collection of 'guides' available.
Can anyone please offer any feed back on Stephen's Guides and whether they are adequate OR a company website that may offer details charts in collections - maybe even a spiral book!
Many thanks

Free Cruising Guides

You can scroll down to find III volumes on the Lesser Antilles -Windward, Leeward, and Virgin Islands.
While these guides don't offer any real charts, they do have lots of info and illustrations on approaches to anchorages and marinas on all of the main islands along with lat and long coordinates for best points of entry and in some cases, rough sketches of positions of nav aids. Copyright 2012.
Plus, they're free. Hope this gets you started while searching for a chart book.
Also, now that the USCG has recognized electronic charts as meeting the publications carriage requirement for vessels that fall under that rule, my guess is that paper charts may come a little easier on the wallet. I quoted many British Admiralty charts at $50 USD a pop.
Cheers, Pappy

I see you in florida, You might consider advertising on Craig's List or etc for charts. Gotta be a bunch of people down there with a stack sitting in their garage.
