Comments about ChartKit Books with Companion CD:

The online description of this chart book did not indicate the edition or year. When I called, I asked if this was the current 16th edition, and I was told that it was. When I received it, it was the 15th edition from about five years ago.

        Employee was huge help in picking right charts and helpful in locating ones he did not have in stock.
        Made effort to call local stores in Naples where I was headed to pick up new boat to,bring back home. Got me addresses and phone numbers.

          Just learning marine navigation and want to learn charts even though electronics taking over. The detail and presentation are good and the CD makes a great cross check. Could use a little more cross referencing from chart to chart. Will make a good addition to my onboard library.
