These easy-to-use, compact chart books are ideal for day sailors, fishing boats, and trailer boats. They measure 12" x 17" (24" x 17" when open) and are made of waterproof, tear-resistant synthetic paper that will withstand the elements.
GPS Ready: New features make Waterproof Chartbooks easy to use with your GPS. Most charts include one-minute lat./long. grids to make vessel positioning a breeze, and major navigation aids are identified with named GPS waypoints.
Small and Large-Scale Charts: Waterproof Chartbooks include small-scale, wide area charts as well as large-scale, detailed charts of harbors and approaches. The Chart Page Index (on the front cover) and "Go-To" page numbers make it simple to quickly find the chart you want.
Pre-Plotted Courses: Maptech's navigation editors add magnetic courses between major navigation aids with distances in nautical miles. Chartbooks are also designed to help you do the calculations yourself. Each page includes a Compass Rose with annual increase in variation and complete scale information.

Comments about Waterproof Chartbooks:
A very nice wide scope cruising chart. I have done some cruising and used similar charts to good effect. Probably not enough detail to satisfy serious local anglers - but it will help you find some fish, keep your lower unit off the hardscrabble, and guide you to the local marina. Just what it is cracked up to be. But I would like it to be half as tall even at the cost of being twice as thick. Waterproof pages should last good long time.
