BVI / Anegada Electronic Charts

Two friends and I are renting from Morrings, and I'd like to record the GPS logs on my notebook PC. I have no charts of the area, and OpenCPN is just showing a bare wire frame. Are there any inexpensive electronic charts of the areas anyone can recommend?

We know that Moorings will at the very least provide paper charts, but I want something to load on my notebook PC so I can see some level of detail beyond the default wire frame.

I know of no free or cheap source, but how about tracking using a GPS and then overlaying your track on Google Earth?
By the way, all of the islands are charted correctly on WGS84 with the exception of Anegada, if you follow the GPS into the channel it will put you on the middle of the reef and you'll meet the sisters! (protruding coral heads). The GPS coordinates are offset about 200 feet or so to the north so use the directions on the paper chart or look up Walker Mangum's charts on the internet.
