ICW Chart #'s Help?

Ok, this is the 2nd time I've found that I've been missing a stretch of charts.

I have downloaded *all* ENCs available from NOAA for the East Coast of the United States. This comes in a package you can select as "all ENCs."

Well, "all ENC's" doesn't include the Intracoastal Waterway.

This would be OK if I had crew and could spend most of the trip outside. Since I dont have crew and need to sleep, I am stuck inlet hopping or in cases where the ICW is a shorter distance than the ocean, inside.

So... I've been downloading some BSB/Raster charts from NOAA along the way which apparently *do* include the Intracoastal. Every time I think I have them all, I end up missing a patch and scrambling to find a chart when they run out on me. This happened yesterday, and I had to go about 10 miles without a chart at all showing depths and hazzards before I could find the right one.

QUESTION: Does anyone have a list of *all* the chart numbers of the Intracoastal waterway? I cannot find this list online and I don't know what the hell "Casino Creek" is, so I wouldn't know to look for a chart that says "Casino Creek to Cape Fear" for instance. That particular chart doesn't have the words "Intracoastal" or "Waterway" in it, so how would I ever find it? (I do have that one already, but need to prepare for the others past Cape Fear and on to Virginia, Delaware and Jersey). Where can I find a list of all chart numbers?

Thanks!

Sean,

May or may not help, but CMAP lists the NOAA charts that they use to create their chartplotter cards. Maybe you can find some clues on their site. Good luck.

I hate to say this but get a chartbook... the Maptech Florida to Norfolk can't be beat, inside, outside, and side trips... yes, you'll be set back a little money but you will use these for years, they are sorta waterproof, and all inclusive...except that our was missing one page to New Bern, NC.

If you're going to spring for a chartbook, get Kettlewell's. It consists of the ICW and the inlets, period. If you're just doing the ICW, it's the most economical way to have paper onboard.

Here's a list of ALL the Atlantic Side charts (click to view each) so perhaps that can help you fill in the blanks. Most of the ICW charts are listed as such.

Thanks, everyone.

I had thought that maybe someone on the board who had transited the ICW had compiled a list of all the charts required. It sounds like nobody has. Maybe when I'm done, I'll post the numbers up so the next person can use them.

It's pretty hard to know which to use.

Thanks for the tip Holding Pattern. I plan (you never really know though) to be up North wintering over for a number of years still to build up savings. I will buy a kit next time I transit. This is just a delivery, unfortunately... not a migration.

Camraderie: That is is pretty helpful compared to others I have seen where they don't call them "Intracoastal" charts... just say... Casino Creek to Cape Fear. I will download all of the ones there as well.

Thanks.

Paul: I don't know why, but the ENCs listed do not contain the ICW charts. Only the raster charts seem to.

I downloaded "all ENCs" before I departed the Keys. I have every ENC on that list.
