Charts - SE Alaska / Northern BC

Iím looking to assemble a comprehensive set of charts for SE Alaska and Northern BC (the portion north of Chart 3313).

If you have recent charts that youíre willing to part with, drop me a line please.

I know everyone thinks they should have paper charts on board but after two trips to SE Alaska I never came close to needing to look at one. They take a lot of room to store also. You can also down load them for free off the NOAA web site. I did that also and never needed to look at them. If your worried about your navigation system going down, just get a back up system and put it on a lap top.

Agree with Russ. I was slow to come to the conclusion that you don't need paper charts anymore, although I have them for BC and AK. I have two Android tablets with Navionics and a laptop with Coastal Navigator. I feel that's enough redundancy to back up primary Furuno chartplotter running C Map.
