Believing In Electronic Charts

Of course, there are still lots of people relying solely on paper charts alone. Nothing wrong with that, but eventually they might run into a situation which clearly demonstrates the power of electronic charts. And after that, they are a believer…
“But earlier this summer, during a run north from Florida to Virginia, I gained a whole new appreciation for electronic charts. I was aboard Motor Boating�s project boat�a Rinker Fiesta Vee 342 equipped with Raymarine�s SL70RCR radar/chartplotter/GPS. On the seven-day, 835-mile trip, I ran inside and outside the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW), sometimes cruising as many as 20 miles offshore. I had an opportunity to use and evaluate the unit, along with C-Map�s NT Plus vector cartography with the new marina layout details.”
