Affordable BSB/KAP Charts from JA Rogers



Just recieved a CD of charts from Ft. Laud to Key West, Bahamas, T&C, to USVI's for $19.95 !!!!

I reccomend: JARogers.com for price, quality and speed of shipping. (They are in Florida where I live.)
These loaded quickly onto my Net Book (Acer Aspire) and look great.

They also list California to Panama, but that's for a trip waaaayyy in the future.

Hi Marc,

Can you tell us the source for the charts on the CD? Are they NOAA, British Admiralty or other?

Thanks

This seems to be a CD with all of NOAA's raster charts for $20. Here's the page where they say what it is:

NAUTICAL CHARTS ON CD: SOUTHEAST FLORIDA THRU US VIRGIN ISLANDS

NOAA makes all these charts available for free:

Raster Navigational Charts: NOAA RNCs

There is no need to buy this CD, unless one-time internet access to download them all is impossible. In that case the CD will be a good alternative.

Correction: the CD doesn't have *all* the NOAA raster charts. Like CaptMarc said, it only has the charts from SE Florida to the USVI.

Well I could be wrong, but as far as I can tell NOAA does not offer the Bahamas charts for free download. All charts of the US and US possessions like PR and VI are available but the only Bahamas charts I have from NOAA are the large scale sailing charts.
