Free Nautical BookCharts for Boaters - One of NOAA's handiest navigation products, especially for recreational boaters, has been Coast Survey's experimental BookletCharts -- nautical charts that are easy to download and print from home computers. Coast Survey has now moved the BookletCharts from experimental stage into official production. Nearly a thousand newly updated BookletCharts are available free on the Web.
