Hello from a Newbie

Thank you for accepting me to your site. My son and I just purchased a 30' Trojan sea raider and are anxious to get her in the water, I'm sure i'll have alot of questions. This boat will mainly be used in Lake Erie and the Detroit river. My first question where do I find downloadable charts to install in the opencpn? Thanks all!!!!
