Why is it referred to as "136"? (I actually have an older copy but don't find it that useful . . . though very cool)

Sometimes referred to as 136 because it is designated NP 136 (I assume the NP stands for nautical publication) issued by the hydrographic office of Britain.

Have an old copy myself and did find it useful for offshore passage planning but in the context as part of several charts, publications and other tools.

Really? Are you using the same google that I use? I tried it and these are the first 2 results. Did you use exactly "NP 136"? How about if you add Hydrographic Office?
