OpenCPN Charts Bahamas through the DR

Does anyone know where I can get electronic Charts that will work with OpenCPN that cover the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, down to the Dominican Republic?

Re: OpenCPN Charts Bahamas through the DR

There are a full set of older Explorer charts in BSB format that work with OCPN. They aren't published anywhere that I know of, but lots of people have them.

They are old, but still much more accurate than anything other than the newest versions of Explorer charts (which I don't think are available to OCPN).

We spent two years throughout all of the Bahamas with these charts and found almost no discrepancies provided you used your eyeballs during important times.

Thank you Mark. I wonder if anyone would be willing to share them? It would be nice to have the Bahamas in BSB format . Ever here of anything for the Turks and Caicos and the DR?
