What Am I Doing Wrong ?

I installed the OCPM and downloaded the Florida charts (all) on my PC laptop. The programs worked fine, but the charts do not show St.Johns river. Are those charts only for ocean?. My GPS worked fine at that time of testing. Do I need some special charts for inland waterways?.
Thanks.

Bought a PC instead of a Mac? (don't shoot me -- it was just a joke!!!)

My guess is that you have chart quilting enabled and some of the St. Johns River charts--11491, for example, are skewed, so they are not included in the quilt. Try turning off chart quilting and see if the chart you're trying to view doesn't appear.
