We're looking to get nautical charts for the bahamas and the Caribbean as far as the British Virgin Isalnds. Anyone know which is the best way to go about doing this? Used, new, copies?

For the Bahamas you want the latest edition Explorer chart books. You can order them on line:

Go on the various "cruiser nets" and ask for folks with extra or no longer needed charts. If you are in or around Ft. Lauderdale there is "used parts and stuff" store called "Sailorman" on State Road 84. They have piles of old used charts and guide books.
- - If you are using lapbook or computer navigaton systems that read the NOAA free download charts that solves your problems for the US Virgins/Puerto Rico and Florida. For other areas you can trade or beg, borrow older e-charts from other cruisers.
